Jason was so moved by the clip that he decided to FaceTime Danny himself and spend some time talking to him.
In a video uploaded to Instagram of their conversation, Jason said: “Hi, beautiful boy! I have been hearing about you all over, from all of my friends. And I wanted to call you and say hi and see how you’re doing.”
Later on in the video, Jason told Danny all about his oceanic adventures as Aquaman, and pledged to take the youngster dolphin riding one day.
And in the caption, he wrote: “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. 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 (sic)”
