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).
The film follows the adventures of Aquaman (Jason Momoa) a year after the events of Justice League, as he struggles to save the world from certain doom.
The handsome star opened up to ET about bringing his adorable kids to the red carpet premiere in Hollywood on Wednesday.
The reviews for Aquaman are in, and while you couldn't quite call them universally 'glowing', Justice League would have given an arm and a leg for them.
