‘Aquaman’ star Jason Momoa may be reprising the Justice League role for an upcoming DC Comics movie sequel, but he will be swimming with the sharks once again as the host of Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” this year. The actor has been a vocal supporter of conservation and protecting the environment.
“Jason Momoa, the fan-favorite actor, superhero, and conservationist who is dedicated to protecting and preserving the world’s oceans, will host the 35th year of Shark Week, Discovery Channel’s week-long celebration and investigation of shark habits and behaviors. Each night, beginning Sunday, July 23,” Warner Bros. Discovery said in a statement.
They added, “Momoa will guide fans through nearly 20 new hours of television featuring the apex predators, including “Belly of the Beast: Feeding Frenzy” that will provide a first time, close-up look at a great white shark feast — captured by researchers with cameras inside a whale carcass decoy — or “Cocaine Sharks” that reveals what happens to sharks that possibly feed on cocaine and other illegal drugs dumped in South Florida waters.”
‘Shark Week’ has long been a tradition on the Discovery Channel. The programming block explores the habitat of sharks as well as highlights unique subspecies of the aquatic predators.
Momoa himself expressed his excitement for his role as host in a post on Instagram. He wrote in the caption, “I’m swimming with sharks! We gotta keep our oceans clean for these beautiful creatures. Join me and (Mananalu) Water on our mission to end single-use plastic to protect our planet.”
Jason Momoa reprised his role as Aquaman for ‘The Flash’ and will return for the sequel ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,’ said to be the last film in the DCEU franchise. He first appeared as Arthur Curry in ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ before his full introduction in the film ‘Justice League.’
