Momoa is fighting the construction alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who will also soon be part of the DC Films family as Black Adam. "This is so much bigger than a telescope being built," Johnson said. "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."

Upcoming DC Films movies include Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, The Batman on June 25, 2021, The Suicide Squad on August 6, 2021, and Aquaman 2 on December 16, 2022.
