Jason Momoa Postpones Filming ‘Aquaman 2’ After Being Injured During Protest
Jason Momoa announced that he can’t start shooting Aquaman 2 because he was “run over by a bulldozer” while protesting in Hawaii.
The Hawaiian-born actor posted on Instagram about his protest to stop the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope project being constructed atop a volcano that locals consider sacred — saying stopping it “is 4x bigger” than “Aquaman 2.”
“Sorry Warner Bros we can’t shoot Aquaman 2,” he wrote. “Because Jason got run over by a bulldozer trying to stop the desecration of his native land. THIS iS NOT HAPPENING. WE ARE NOT LETTING YOU DO THIS ANYMORE.”
The massive telescope project was approved in 2009 and is being underwritten by universities in California and Canada, and partners in China, India and Japan, according to a report in The Wrap.
Jason is under contract to shoot the sequel, according to reports. The original grossed $1.15 billion, and its sequel is slated for release in December 2022.
