Today has been a day of teaser trailers out the whazoo (from the latest STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS clip to a snazzy teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s HATEFUL EIGHT) and in the case of BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE we got a teaser for a teaser it seems. But I also stumbled across this little nugget that is being yanked off of YouTube at an alarming rate. Click onward to see what the hell I am talking about.
I am a diehard Aquaman fan (a fact I have made known previously) and I loved the MAN OF STEEL movie (take your whining about Superman killing Zod and shove ’em where the sun don’t shine) so I have been amped out of this world ever since it was announced that Aquman was going to have a small role in the upcoming BATMAN V SUPERMAN movie as a prelude to the Justice League film. I was even more jazzed when Jason Momoa was cast in the role because Jason Momoa only plays badasss characters and I really wanted to see a badass Aquaman on the big screen. And I just went over the moon when Zack Snyder went out of his way to show he felt pretty much the same way about Aquaman. So now that Snyder has given us a glimpse of Momoa in full Aquaman regalia I am angry that I have to wait an entire year to see this awesomeness on a big screen.
Zack Snyder, the BATMAN v SUPERMAN director, was on his way to the movie’s set when he heard a local Detroit radio show speaking disparagingly about Aquaman and did what anyone with even an ounce of taste in matters involving comic books would do, he called into the show and set the hosts straight!
