Zack Snyder calls up a radio show to defend Aquaman
Aquaman has long been the butt of many jokes, but from the sound of it, Zack Snyder and (most likely) Jason Momoa are planning to turn that around. This morning on CBS Detroit, the hosts decided to talk some smack about Aquaman possibly making an appearance in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. It seems as if a certain director had some time away from creating Batman v Superman/Star Wars mash-ups to clarify just how badass Aquaman can be.
Here's what Snyder had to say:
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? Because that seems like what he does. Or fish?" The cool thing with Aquaman is he has his trident. 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 because, 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.
I loved the fact Snyder called in to set the record straight. Obviously there's some things he can't talk about but this is as close as one can get it. You can check out today's broadcast here, which has been uploaded since. I certainly don't mind people poking fun at Aquaman but something tells me Khal Drogo will paint the character in a new light.
