AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM Star Jason Momoa Reportedly Tests Positive For COVID-19 While Shooting Sequel
According to a new report, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star Jason Momoa has been forced to self-isolate after testing positive for COVID-19 while shooting the DC Comics sequel. Read on for details...
The Batman was forced to halt production on multiple occasions due to COVID-19, and even the Caped Crusader himself, Robert Pattinson, contracted the virus at one point. Now, The Sun (so, don't take this too seriously until other sources weigh in) is reporting that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom leading man Jason Momoa has similarly been forced into isolation after a positive test result.
Apparently, this happened while Momoa was filming scenes for the DC Comics sequel in Hertfordshire, England, and Warner Bros. is said to be hoping that they can put a stop to any further outbreaks.
"Jason is fine luckily and is now isolating after getting a positive test," one source tells the tabloid. "But it’s a real headache for the film’s bosses, who are now worrying about having to delay their tight filming schedule. Of course the safety of everyone working on the film is the most important thing and everyone is tested regularly. They are hoping this is a one-off and that they can work around Jason and continue filming on the production."
"Everyone is wishing him a speedy recovery and they’re looking forward to having him back on set."
As we get deeper into the winter, chances are we'll continue to see similar disruptions to productions. Even with the majority choosing to take the vaccine, COVID isn't going anywhere, and Hollywood will likely continue to face issues like this. As of right now, there's no word on whether any other cast or crew members have also been forced to self-isolate after testing positive.
Regardless, assuming this report is true, we obviously wish Momoa a speedy recovery!
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom arrives in theaters on December 16, 2022.
