In 2018, Jason Momoa starrer Aquaman released and became a surprise blockbuster. Not only did the film cross the $1.1 billion mark at the box-office it's also the highest-grossing DCEU (DC Extended Universe) film. Aquaman also starred Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson and Nicole Kidman in pivotal roles. Hence, it comes as no surprise that, like how Gal Gadot starrer Wonder Woman (2017) has a sequel coming up titled Wonder Woman 1984, Jason Momoa will be back in Aquaman 2.

However, Jason is refusing to shoot for Aquaman 2 as revealed by the actor himself on Instagram. But why is the star taking such drastic action? It's because Momoa is protesting the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) construction, which is taking place atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii's tallest mountain. Jason wrote on Instagram, "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," Momoa added.

Recently, The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson visited Hawaii, where he resided for a few years as a child and offered to help with talks between the state and protesters who are trying their hardest to stop the construction. According to CNN, The Rock shared, "What I realized today, and obviously I've been following this for years now, is that it's bigger than a telescope. It's humanity. It's culture."
