Jason Momoa's Delaying Shooting Of Aquaman 2 So He Can Save Sacred Land In Hawaii

A real-life superhero.

Jason Momoa has revealed he may have to delay shooting of Aquaman 2 because he’s trying to save sacred land in Hawaii – and that sounds like a pretty good reason to us.

The star has been in Hawaii over the last few weeks protesting a construction project on the state’s tallest mountain, Mauna Kea, sacred land to Indigenous Hawaiians.

The Thirty Meter Telescope, or TMT, is a $1.4 billion construction project which has sparked much protest among native people.

According to CNN, revered ancestors are buried at the sacred site and it’s seen as the place where humans can enter heaven. Scientists, however, see the land as the best place to capture a clear glimpse into the origins of the universe.

The Rock is also on board with the protests and has previously said, “It’s not about stopping science. It’s about respecting culture and respecting people and doing things the right way.”

He added that protests are “so peaceful, yet so powerful,” however, several arrests have been made.

Jason joined the fight after the arrests were made and has since taken to Instagram to share many updates from the site.

In one post he wrote, “We are the unexpected, we are the resistance, we will never give up.”

“TMT, you are welcome in [The] Canary Islands. The conditions are better and you are welcome there. Even better, the best conditions [are in] Morocco, but if no one wants [you], TMT, [then] shoot it to space. Please leave [our] Mauna alone. You have taken enough from our people… Leave us alone. NO is NO.”

The actor has once again taken to Instagram to share that “can’t shoot Aquaman 2“.

“Sorry Warner Bros we can’t shoot Aquaman 2. 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. Enough is enough.”

We’re pretty sure Jason will be contractually obligated to shoot the film, but it’s a pretty powerful reason to delay shooting.

Aquaman 2 will be released on December 16, 2022.

Jason Momoa Wants To Remake A Classic '80s Movie With Peter Dinklage And We're Here For It

This is the post-GoT content we deserve.

Jason Momoa revealed earlier this week he’d be down to suit up as Wolverine one day, which could totally work if it wasn’t for the small problem that he is currently starring in DC films as Aquaman.

But it seems Jason is also keen to fill another actor’s shoes in a remake – in this case it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role of Julius in Twins. And he wants his Game of Thrones co-star Peter Dinklage to take over Danny DeVito’s role.

In case you haven’t seen the movie, or it’s been a looong time since you did and you need a refresher, in the movie, Danny and Arnold play fraternal twins who are the product of a genetic experiment.

However, one of the babies was given every desirable trait you’d want, while the other got whatever was left.

The scientists tell the boys’ mother that they died, when they were actually separated and grew up living very different lives.

Julius (Schwarzenegger), who was raised by the scientist, finds out the truth, and heads to LA to find Vincent (DeVito), who’s a bit of a hustler. Hilarity, obviously, ensues.

Momoa was at Celebrity Fan Fest when a fan suggested he and Dinklage team up for the film and he was quick to respond, “F**kin’ tell me where to sign! Absolutely. That’d be amazing. I love that movie.”

It wasn’t long before one Twitter user Photoshopped the original poster to feature the GoT stars:

We have no idea what Peter’s thoughts on the matter are, but we would totally watch anything with these two in it!

Please, Hollywood, make it happen!
