Zack Snyder tells Detroit radio station to leave Aquaman alone

Stars — they're just like us and listen to morning radio DJs while driving to work!

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder was on his way to the set — the movie is currently filming in Detroit — and listening to 97.1 The Ticket's Stoney and Bill radio show. The hosts began making fun of Aquaman, a Justice League character that guards the sea and can talk to animals, notes TheWrap.

Snyder couldn't stand it — he just had to set the record straight. So, he gave the show a call and defended Aquaman's skills.

Aquaman has a trident that could "cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact," Snyder argued, before realizing that might suggest Aquaman will appear in the upcoming film and rolling that statement back: "It's not to say that he's in the movie or anything like that."

The radio hosts handle their surprise caller pretty well, and you can listen to the whole amusing segment over at TheWrap. As to whether Snyder really was just defending Aquaman's honor or teasing a subplot of his upcoming movie? We'll just have to wait for next year's Comic-Con.
