In one of this week’s stranger stories, a Detroit radio show disparaging Aquaman received a caller from a LA cellphone number who identified himself as Zack.

The show was focused on the filming of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in the city, and the caller – our friend Zack – revealed that he was on his way to the set, saying that Aquaman could “cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact … he’s super strong.

“It’s not to say that he’s in the movie or anything like that, but he has the potential to be bad ass.”

Could this have been Zack Snyder? And if so, has he gone mad?

Aquaman’s role has not been officially confirmed, but Game Of Thrones and Conan The Barbarian star Jason Mamoa is widely believed to be donning the golden tunic of Atlantis.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be released on 6 May 2016 – read our defence of Ben Affleck’s casting here and Gal Gadot’s casting here. Find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics.
