Last night came and went without another Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice character poster reveal from director Zack Snyder, so it appears as if we won't see anything more from the movie for a while now. Regardless, when Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Aquaman himself - Jason Momoa - the site quizzed the actor on that and his role in the DC Cinematic Universe as the King of the Seven Seas. There are lots of very interesting details in the highlights below, so check them out and the be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place. Bring on Justice League...

On His Reaction To The "Unite The Seven" Aquaman Poster Reveal: 
 
That was a shocker for sure. It was supposed to be a surprise in 2016, so it definitely helps [our show]. I’ve been holding that secret for a long time. 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.  

 
On Whether He's Shot Any Action Scenes For Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:

 
No, we haven’t done too much on the action yet. You know, 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.
 
 
On How Big His Batman v Superman Role Actually Is: 

 
Well, it’s Batman and Superman, 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.  
 
 
On Wheher He Believes That Aquaman's Presence Was Felt In Man Of Steel: 

 
Well, you know, I think that’s left for the genius of Snyder to kind of reveal that. There’s definitely a plan in this whole universe that he’s 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. So I wouldn’t want to take anything away from Zack, because he loves revealing all those things. And… you never know, man.
 
 
On How He Feels To Bring The Character To The Big Screen: 
 
Oh, absolutely. The whole mythology of Aquaman is pretty amazing. There’s so many things to tell, and there’s a whole backstory that’s just amazing. There’s a lot of surprises coming. I think, yeah, he’s been cast aside. But, um [laughs] times are going to change now, buddy. Conan was really hard, because you have 15 different types of fans and so many things to respect and honor. To do it right it’s got to be bloody-bloody-bloody-bloody-bloody, and not a lot of people go see that anymore. It’s not the ’80s anymore. It’s a really hard format. We busted ass, but there were a lot of cooks in the kitchen on that one. 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. 
 
 
On Whether He Can Still Fit The Red Road Around His DC Schedule: 

 
I would love to. What’s great about it is we shoot six episodes in less than two months; it can totally fit in there. I would love to do two more seasons. Kopus is an amazing character to play. I’m going to direct my own stuff, work on Red Road, and obviously, I’m excited about kicking some ass on the DC Films. It’s fun to be able to dress up and go play a superhero. It’s a pretty choice job. And to be able to honor my native culture is another badass thing. I’m definitely living the dream right now.
