In the press junket for the upcoming Justice League film, Jason Momoa confirmed a popular fan theory regarding his much anticipated character Aquaman.

Even though Aquaman has so far not had a lot of screen time in the Marvel universe and was only briefly shown in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as one of the few 'metahumans' he's been busy offscreen.
Some eagle-eyed fans speculated that he may have secretly helped rescue Superman and the actor has confirmed that they were right.
Remember before Clark Kent became Superman and he was having a moody old time upon a fishing boat, looking scruffy in his beard and quite mournful? And then an oil rig caught fire and he jumped in the water, saved all the people and then the oil rig collapsed on top of him?
And he just miraculously washed up upon shore? Well, there was more to that than meets the eye.
Luckily, Jason Momoa, who is one of the headline stars in Justice League and is even getting his own film next year - Aquaman - has confirmed the fan theory that the Atlantean king may have helped out Clark Kent when the man of steel was bobbing around at the bottom of the sea. After all, it is Aquaman's terrain (so to speak).
"In Man of Steel, when Henry [Cavill] is saving the oil rig and he's holding that up, and all of a sudden he kind of floats up on the ocean," Momoa told DC All Access.
"He's [director Zack Snyder] like 'I had Aquaman save him so that they did cross paths at one point'. So then when Bruce goes 'You ever heard of...Superman?' I have met him and we have crossed paths."
But the big question here is - does Clark Kent even know? Well, I suppose he is dead - or is he? So Aquaman knows who Superman is, but will this affect the plot?
People are very excited that the fan theory has been confirmed as canon.
Justice League is out at the cinema this weekend and I guess we'll find out then.
