The source added: “They are hoping this is a one-off and that they can work around Jason and continue filming on the production.”
Momoa, 42 shared about the many injuries sustained on the set during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month.

“I love my job and I get a little too excited, then the age thing, you know, I’m an ageing superhero right now.”
