Zack Snyder Calls Radio Station to Say Goodbye to Detroit
Zack Snyder is at it again. Months after he called into local Detroit radio station 97.1 The Ticket to defend Aquaman after DJ Bill McAlister made fun of the character, he called again to say goodbye to the city — and talk about why it’s a bad idea to smack talk the king of Atlantis on air.
“We head to Chicago after this, then a couple more locations but we’re getting close, as they say,” the director said during a call to the Stony and Bill Morning Show, talking about production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “It’s a long shoot.”
Thanking both the show’s hosts and Detroit in general, he said “I feel like there’s a really good chance we’ll be back. We have a couple of established locations here that I think if we make another movie, I’m knocking on wood here, we would have to come back and shoot those. That would be fun.”
Snyder also explained what was behind his earlier call to the station, saying that he was simply trying to deflect Jason Momoa’s anger after the hosts had made fun of Aquaman, the character Momoa plays in Batman v Superman.
“I was trying to protect you guys from his wrath,” Synder said. “The man is a monster. The guy is awesome and he’s so passionate. I was hanging out with him here in Detroit and he was loving on it so hard. He’s a great guy, but like I say not a small individual.”
