Set to be released on December 16th, 2022, “Aquaman 2” may need to be pushed back seeming as their lead star is busy with bigger matters. If you have been following any of the star Jason Momoa‘s recent media posts, you would know that he is very busy with something that he believes is unjust.
Recently, Jason Momoa posted an image on Instagram that shows a telescope construction site, he made sure to showcase the drastic damage it is doing to the surrounding landscape. He continued to explain that the TMT (Thirty Meter Telescope) will cause massive amounts of damage especially because of the site that it is being built on.

FUCK THIS. And TMT is 4x bigger. 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. Go somewhere else. Repost. This is what telescope construction looks like (Subaru Telescope, 1992). The TMT will be four times larger on unscathed land. We must protect our scared mountain from further desecration. #KuKiaiMauna #WeAreMaunaKea #TMTShutdown
The site, that is said to have cost around $1.4 billion, is the main problem. The location of the site is on Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the island of Hawaii, and is considered very sacred to the people around there, such as Jason Momoa and fellow actor Dwayne Johnson.
Dwayne Johnson had even gone on record on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” to talk about the construction and the site it is on. Johnson spoke about how the site is somewhat church-like, being a sacred place that is not to be built on. He also went on to talk about how this is affecting the people around the site as well, and that this is sign that everyone just needs to stop.
Johnson and Momoa are using their fame to gain recognition for the causes that they believe in, and because of this they seem to be getting more and more supporters each day. The momentum for this rally against the TMT is growing, and Momoa will be focusing on something that is impactful to his life rather than a film that can be pushed back.
