There is a lot riding on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice. Not only does it feature three of the most popular comic book superheroes ever – Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman – but it is suppose to launch an entire DC film franchise which is already slated to have 10 more instalments after it.

One of those future films is Aquaman, which will feature Jason Momoa as the underwater hero. Snyder has now confirmed the hero will appear in the upcoming Batman v Superman film but not as we expect.

In an interview with Empire, who describe the cameo as “elusive” he says: "You will understand he exists." Perhaps there will be an ‘after-credits’ scene, much like what Marvel have done, or perhaps just a throwaway reference.

The director did not elaborate any further on the cameo but he did speak about his hopes for the DC cinematic universe and Justice League: "What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story,” he explained.

"The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes."


According to Snyder, other directors of the standalone films will have the freedom to follow their own vision, but he will be watching them closely.

"I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. I have given everyone amazing access to our story, to me, and what we are doing. All the films have like-minded conceptual jumping on points."

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will reach cinemas 25 March 2015 while Justice League Part One will come 17 November 2017 and Aquaman 27 July 2018.
