Hollywood celebrity Jason Momoa endured for his art while making the "Aquaman" sequel and now requires months of surgery to fix hernia, eye and rib issues.
The "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" actor underwent a scratched cornea and other wounds while making the movie, but acknowledges he only has himself to blame for trying stunts as an "ageing superhero", says a report.
"I'm getting old," he said while arriving as a guest on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He continued: "I messed up my eyes. I just got something in it that kinda cut it up, and then I've gotta get surgery - I have a hernia, I've got ribs out. I'm just getting beat up, I just kinda give it. I love my job and I get a little too excited. The age thing. I'm an ageing superhero now."
The second film also casts Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The production kicks off in September this year.
Director James Wan comes back as the director. The film is planned for December 2022 premier. A behind-the-scenes clip was lately released at the DCFandom virtual event.
Plot items are still kept secret, but director James Wan once said the upcoming sequel was "very heavily motivated by 'Planet of the Vampires".
He further said: "You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out of the boy."
