With the Marvel films, we have Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige planning the Marvel cinematic universe. (The man has definitely proven himself.) On the Warner Bros. and DC camp, who’s the one responsible for planning the DC cinematic universe? According to Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones), it’s Zack Snyder. During the promotion of his series, The Red Road, Momoa tells EW about Snyder being in charge, how big his Aquaman role is in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more.

Momoa said, “There’s definitely a plan in this whole universe that [Zack Snyder] is designing, and it’s amazing to be a part of it. I think everything that you see that is building, there’s a purpose behind the whole plan… What’s great about this is Zack, man. We don’t want to just reinvent it, but he’s a got a whole idea of what Aquaman should be and I’m really honored to be playing it. I’m excited for the world to see it.”

We recently reported about how small Aquaman’s role is in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“It’s Batman and Superman,” said Momoa. “It’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there… ‘Justice League’ is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot ‘Justice League.’”

Momoa talked about how he had to keep his character’s design a secret.

“I’ve been holding that secret for a long time,” he says. “Zack Snyder called me up and said, ‘I’m posting this picture now.’ He’s just a genius and I love him to death. He sent it over and we’re in the middle of the editing suite for the thing I’m doing right now, and we all freaked out, man. It was so amazing to see it come out.”

See Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
