Aquman is awesome and the director of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“, Zack Snyder is asking you to leave him alone!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the director was listening to a Detroit radio station when he was on his way to the film set for the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“. However, Zack Snyder was prompted to defend the underrated character after the radio hosts decided to trash Aquaman during a discussion about the film.
So, what he did he say? You can either listen to the segment here or read the transcript below:
Aquaman has some cool abilities. I think people are like, “What, does he talk to animals or fish?” That’s what people think. The cool thing with Aquaman is that his trident, it could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact – that’s in the canon. He’s super strong because he can exist at these depths. Not to say he’s in my movie or anything like that, but I’m just saying he has the potential to be pretty badass.
Sounds like a bad excuse to you? We definitely don’t think so and we don’t blame him for trying to defend Aquaman either.
Because hey, Aquaman is literally the king of ocean!
Plus, we hear that “Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa is going to play Aquaman in the film too! If he is indeed playing Aquaman in the film, well, you can expect to see an upgrade from a blonde-haired hero to a tougher and grittier ocean king.
Meanwhile, Aquaman might debut with his own solo film as Warner Bros has revealed that there are 9 new films currently in development for the DC Cinematic Universe.
