Careful, you never know who’s listening!

Friday morning a Detroit radio station was badmouthing Aquaman and questioning how he would fit in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, when a caller called in to weigh on what had been mentioned. This person was claiming to be Zack Snyder and SlashFilm has confirmed that it was indeed the reknown director defending Aquaman! (listen here) Zack wouldn’t cofirm nor deny whether Aquaman would be in the upcoming film (several sites have assured Jason Mamoa has signed a deal to play the character, but nothing official from DC nor Warner Bros. yet) but he did point out how he would match up against Superman.

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.

This of course has furthered fueled Aquaman rumors. What are your thoughts on Aquaman and on the rumor that Jason Momoa may be playing him?
