Jason Momoa just proved he’s a superhero in real life too.
The 41-year-old actor recently surprised a young fan currently battling cancer, by sending him plenty of goodies, including a life-sized Aquaman trident.
Momoa, who played the titular DC Comics character in the 2018 blockbuster film ‘Aquaman’ teamed up with Warner Bros to surprise the mega-fan with the special gift and a surprise video chat, reports Insider.
Jason Momoa first talked with Danny Sheehan, 7, over a FaceTime call a few weeks ago which he shared on his Instagram page on Nov. 18.
The 7-year-old kid, who was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of a brain tumor in 2017 is reportedly a huge fan of Momoa, which is why the Hollywood hunk surprised him with the gifts, as per Prevention.
The ‘Justice League’ star took to Instagram, where he shared several photos of all the toys that were sent to Danny, including the golden trident and an Aquaman action figure.
“Wanted to share a picture of this amazing boy Danny Sheehan, Natalie his mom sent me this today. I wanted to say thanks to Andy Smith @sideshowcollectibles for putting some action figures and toys together for Danny and @wbpictures for sending over a Aquaman trident… Mahalo to Everyone involved and the Sheehan family Aloha J,” Jason Momoa wrote in the caption.
He also included a sweet hand-written note in the collectibles gifted to Danny reading: “Can’t wait to ride on some dolphins with you Danny! Love, Uncle Aquaman.”
The actor had previously shared a clip of their video chat, thanking his fans for reaching out and making him aware of Sheehan’s story.
“So I just wanted to say thank you to the community, friends, and family on Instagram for reaching out and showing me this beautiful boy Danny who is going through chemo and has cancer,” Jason Momoa shared.
“I saw his video online that made me want to get in touch and FaceTime him and spend some time talking to him. If you would like to help out and read more about his story and his family his go fund me is in my IG story and LINK IN BIO. Hey @wbpictures let’s get Danny a Aquaman Trident ! Aloha J.”
