    Jason Momoa leads a dramatic haka at 'Aquaman' premiere

    Jason Momoa channeled his inner Polynesian at the premiere of Aquaman in Los Angeles last night, performing a traditional haka on the movie’s blue carpet. Momoa – never one to not show off where the opportunity presents itself – led the Māori chant with a group of his Polynesian cast-mates, including veteran Kiwi star Temuera Morrison and, rather cutely, his kids. Momoa is himself Hawaiian born, and while there’s been some ‘discussion’ online over whether he should be leading a traditional Māori haka, it appears he’s been largely given a pass on ‘cultural’ grounds by the Polynesian community (not least those musclebound gents who were actually involved).
