According to Cinema Blend on Friday, director of "Batman v. Superman's" Zack Snyder called into a local Detroit sports radio talk show to defend the character of Aquaman. Jason Momoa, though only rumored to play the role, is only speculated to take on the mantle of the sea faring character. Some have may even thought his likeness may not even be all that representative the typical comic book character.
For the record, just because Snyder called in on a radio station to defend Aquaman, it doesn't necessarily mean the character is in the movie. Since local media are aware of the filming of the film in the Detroit area, it just makes sense it would trend locally and coverage and show topics are typical of local TV and radio stations. Even local area people were filming the action sequences from a far, zooming in on Ben Affleck and Snyder as they were filming scenes. Snyder boasts that Aquaman has the "potential to be a bad a**."
"Aquaman has some cool abilities. His trident could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact. That’s a thing that’s in the canon. He’s super strong … It’s not to say that he’s in the movie or anything like that but … he has the potential to be bad a**."
Snyder was actually attempting to convince the sports talk radio show hosts that he was actually the director of "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and they had been rather unprepared for the call as it's a pretty big deal to even get an interview with Snyder while he's in the middle of filming the Warner Brothers film. So many questions could have been asked while in the moment like the recent rescheduling of the release date to the recent topic of making the theme of the movie more of an "anti-Superman" variety.
Though, since it was sports talk, it would make sense for them not to be prepared as the show only caters to sports enthusiasts and making fun of super heroes would seem appropriate for a sports niche' radio show.
"Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens in theaters come March 25, 2016.
