While fans eagerly wait for the sequel of hit superhero film Aquaman, the lead actor Jason Momoa says Aquaman 2 can’t move forward as he is protesting major Hawaii construction.

Enraged Momoa posted a photo on his Instagram showing a telescope being constructed, pointing out the drastic damage done to the land and explaining that Hawaii’s planned Thirty Meter Telescope will be much more catastrophic to the site where it is being built.

Aquaman star has joined thousands of activists in protest of the telescope’s construction and feels strongly about protecting the site on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii.

Momoa wrote, ” 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 so much bigger than a telescope being built,” said Johnson. “This is humanity, these are human beings whose hearts are hurting, and I think any time situations like that come up… that’s our indication that we gotta stop. Let’s be considerate, let’s be empathetic, and let’s always take care of our people.”

Moamoa also joined in the protesters along with his children last week. Protesters have blocked the road to the summit for 17 days.

Momoa is being supported by his fellow Hollywood superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who while appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last month explained that the construction is taking place at a location that Johnson likened to church grounds.
