Zack Snyder: Defender of Aquaman

Zack Snyder: Defender of Aquaman

Aquaman isn’t usually well talked about, especially when it comes to his abilities (and yes, they do include talking to sea life) but the other day when CBS Detroit started making fun of the ocean master, they got a little bit of a surprise.

Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice film (the same film that may feature an Aquaman cameo) called into the radio station to discuss the Aquaman issue;

“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.”

You can listen to the full segment with Snyder here. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be hitting theatres March 25, 2016. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s been heavily rumored that Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) will be playing Aquaman.
