Jason Momoa may have only just joined the DC family, but the actor isn’t pulling any punches. After being asked to sign a fan’s poster of Aquaman, he wasted no time in insulting the studio’s main rival, Marvel.
According to Comic Book Movie, the incident unfolded at the Indiana Comic Con last weekend, where Momoa was in attendance for a Game of Thrones panel.
Momoa, who was finally confirmed as Aquaman in February after months of speculation, was allegedly asked by a fan to not only sign the poster that director Zack Snyder uploaded to Twitter to confirm he’d be portraying the character, but he was also asked, “Can you write down a reason why all these DC haters out there should join our DC universe.”
After thinking about the question, Momoa decided to send a particularly harsh barb to all of Marvel’s many fans out there by writing, “F*** Marvel.”
But not only should Momoa’s comments be taken very much tongue-in-cheek, the actor is yet to remark publicly on the matter or confirm that he actually signed the poster himself.

This isn’t the first time that actors from Marvel and DC’s cinematic universes have decided to lash out and attack the other studio.
In fact, just last month while he was out promoting his performance in Kingsman: The Secret Service, Samuel L. Jackson took the opportunity to explain just why he believes Marvel is better than DC.
Jackson explained to MTV, “I think Marvel has figured out a way to make those movies accessible to the public that DC hasn’t. I don’t know what that is. I don’t know why you can’t get Batman and Superman or people to get as juiced up to be a part of that.”
Meanwhile, back in March, 2014, while talking up Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the film’s stars Anthony Mackie and Jackson, once again, had harsh words for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Jackson even took this opportunity to state, “There’s Marvel where you have heroes, and there’s DC where you have interesting bad guys.”
Jason Momoa also previously risked the ire of Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin when he directed his potty-mouth towards the author. After learning that his character Khal Drogo was going to be killed off, Momoa told Martin, “Go f*** yourself.”
Expect more shots to be fired before Momoa makes his debut as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice on March 25, 2016.
