In the wake of the massive tidal wave created by our first look at Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, now comes word on how the King of the Seven Seas will make his bow in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
POSSIBLE MOVIE SPOILERS BELOW
Badass Digest has undertaken an interesting analysis behind the meaning of the “Unite The Seven” tag that was featured on the Aquaman character pic released by Snyder himself last night. But what’s particularly interesting is that in it, the site claims they’ve seen the shooting script for Batman v Superman, and they report that Aquaman has only a small role in the upcoming DC superhero flick. In fact, they’ve revealed that:
Aquaman is barely even present, showing up only in a survey of metahumans by Lex Luthor and then again at the very ending, when Batman recruits him for the Justice League.
This information is not official — so don’t forget to take this with a grain of salt. The site also claims that Aquaman and our scarlet speedster, aka the Flash, barely have cameos in the script, but acknowledges that there might have been changes made during production (that could also explain why this official pic of the former Game of Thrones actor was released now, a whole year before the movie is set to come out). What’s also interesting, and our colleagues over at Comic Book Movie have pointed this out, is that it looks like Lex Luthor will know about the other super-powered characters and that the movie will use the iconic Superman villain to introduce them to the movie audience.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters on March 25, 2016. What do you think of the way Aquaman might get introduced?
