This is so good. Friday morning, a Detroit radio station was talking crap about how Aquaman could fit into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then someone named Zack called into their show. This person claimed to be director Zack Snyder, and having talked to Zack Snyder in the past, I’ll say it sounds just like him. /Film has since independently confirmed, yes, this is Zack Snyder.
The director wouldn’t say if Aquaman was in the movie or not, but defended the character’s abilities and how they might match up against, say, those of Superman. Listen to the Zack Snyder Aquaman phone call below.
If you can’t listen, basically it went like this. The caller called in, and according to the news, had a Los Angeles cell phone number. He said “yes, it’s Zack Snyder,” and then said the following:
You guys were disparaging, a little bit, Aquaman…I don’t want to give anything away about the movie or anything like that but Aquaman has some cool abilities. People are like, “Oh what? Does he talk to animals? Cause that seems like what he does. Or fish?” The cool thing with Aquaman is his Trident. So you have to realize that could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact. That’s a thing that’s in the canon. He’s super strong cause of course he can exist at these super deep depths so when he comes up here he’s crazy strong. Anyway, not to say he’s in my movie or anything like that but he has the potential to be bad ass, that’s all I’m saying.
While everyone assumes actor Jason Momoa is playing that character, he has yet to confirm it. However, he might have been seen in Detroit at the same rock climbing gym as Gal Gadot. Take that as you may.
This is why when you say something in public, you have to be prepared to back it up. Be it on the internet, Twitter or the radio, you never ever know who might be listening.
