Khal Drogo Is Aquaman? Why Not?

Of all the superheroes who are the constant butt of jokes, Aquaman is usually at the top of that list (See: Entourage, swamp wang), so Zack Snyder’s going to try and change all that by casting Jason Momoa and presumably have him bang Emilia Clarke right in front of Batman’s face. It’s the only move here. HitFix reports:

Someone else who’s not particularly happy about what happened in [Man of Steel] is Aquaman. I’m not sure if that’s the actual name they’ll use or not, but what we’re hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean. He will not have a major role in the film, but he will make an appearance, and it definitely sets him up to return once Snyder gets to “Justice League.”

So basically Aquaman will show up at some point to beat the shit out of Superman, and then they’ll become best friends. Which will happen either before or after Batman shows up and also beats the shit out of Superman, and then they, too, become best friends. Apparently you can’t just walk up to the guy and say “What’s up?”

“Hey, how ya doin’? I’m Aquaman. So, listen, you know that alien thing in the Indian Ocean? Literally boiled a whole bunch of my people. Just boiled them right to death.”
“Oh, really? It did? I must’ve missed that while I was getting terraformed in the face.”
“Aw, shit, now I feel like a dick. This is why I should’ve just stabbed you with a swordfish.”
“It woulda been less rude. Just puttin’ that out there.”
