Shots fired! Let the flame wars begin! News has just come in from a recent signing at Indiana Comic Con. Many celebrities were in attendance and one of the special guests was upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s Jason Momoa. The King of the Seven Seas was on-hand to sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

One fan in particular asked Momoa to sign her Aquaman poster with a reason “why all these DC haters out there should join our DC universe.” His answer was simple.

“Fuck Marvel.”

The Atlantian’s words have sent waves through the Marvel fandom community. It may be hard to believe that at one time Momoa was in the running to play Drax The Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. The role eventually went to Dave Bautista. When asked why he decided to turn down the role, Jason said that he felt that Drax was too similar to characters he’s already played.

“Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn’t really fit in my time because I’ve done so many things where I don’t say much and I’m colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were action-based to direct ‘Road to Paloma’ so people could see that side.

I want my children to see their father happy. It’s not that it’s not a good role, it just wasn’t the right thing. I was on Stargate: Atlantis for four years playing a similar character called Ronon, who was an alien who didn’t say much and grunted. I’ve been there and done that, whether people have seen it or not. You want to stretch.”

Now that the actor has firmly cemented himself in the DC Cinematic Universe, it is easy to see why he would stand firmly behind the DC brand.
