    Radio hosts, beware! You never know who could be your next caller. 

    Hollywood director Zack Snyder was listening to Detroit's 97.1 The Ticket on his way to the set of Batman v Superman late last week.

    Once he heard hosts Stoney and Bill were trashing Aquaman, the Justice League member who watches over the sea and speaks to animals, Snyder decided to jump on the phone and defend the memorable character.

    "I don't want to give anything away about the movie, but Aquaman has some cool abilities," Snyder told the radio hosts. "People are like: ‘Oh, what? Does he talk to animals? Cause that seems like what he does. Or fish?' The cool thing with Aquaman is he's Triton, so you have to realize that [he] could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact."

    So does this mean he will be in the upcoming movie?

    "It's not to say that he's in the movie or anything like that," Snyder teased. "But he has the potential to be bad ass."

    Rumors have circulated that Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa is in the running to play Aquaman. Snyder, however, still won't confirm the watery character's role in the upcoming film.

    Batman v Superman, which features Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, isn't scheduled to be released for another two years.

    However, the cast and crew are beginning to realize the magnitude of their future blockbuster.

    "You can talk all you want about other superhero movies, but it's Batman and Superman, let's just be honest," the filmmaker recently admitted to reporters. "I don't know how you get bigger than that."
