Warner Bros. Is Getting Slaughtered For, Once Again, Delaying Various DC Films Such As ‘Aquaman 2’

Warner Bros. Is Getting Slaughtered For Delaying Various DC Films Again

Warner Bros.


Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Warner Bros. has delayed a handful of DC Films, including the likes of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Earlier this year, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was set to hit theaters around Christmas time before it was then delayed to March 2023. That date, though, has been changed once again, as the film will now release NINE MONTHS LATER on December 25, 2023.

Given the length of the delay, some fans have begun speculating that the film would be doing reshoots in order to remove Mera, the character played by embattled actress Amber Heard. Most people, however, saw it as yet another reminder of what a mess the DCEU has been for the decade or so it’s been in existence.

To make matters ever more embarrassing for the newly formed Warner Bros. Discovery conglomerate, reports seem to indicate that the various delays — which also included movies outside of the DC Films umbrella — were due to the fact that they don’t have the money to release any more than two films for the remainder of 2022.

While the Aquaman sequel may have been bumped by almost an entire year, the delay of the Shazam! was a bit less severe, as that will now hit theaters on March 17, 2023 instead of its previous December 21, 2022 date. As a result of the delay, the film will now no longer have to compete at the box office with the likely behemoth and long-awaited Avatar sequel, Avatar: The Way of the Water.
