Damn, both Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom & Shazam: Fury of the Gods has been delayed until 2023.
Deadline has reported the news about the situation, which you can read below:
Deadline has learned that Warner Bros is making a slew of release-date changes next year. First of all, James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom needs more time in postproduction, so it’s moving from March 17, 2023 to December 25, 2023. You’ll remember the first Aquaman was released during Christmas 2018 and made $335.1 million domestic and worldwide is one of two $1 billion-grossing DC pics alongside Todd Phillips’ Joker.
To backfill that March 17 space, and also to capitalize on an Avatar-less March, David F. Sandberg’s Shazam: Fury of the Gods will be moving off its December 21 release date and heading to Aquaman 2‘s old date.Read: look how great The Batman was with its March opening at $134M and finaling at $369.3M.
Another thing: Shazam 2 will have access to Imax screens on its new date, a premium-ticket format that Disney will otherwise be sopping up this December with Avatar: The Way of Water.
Well, the delay for both films is understandable. I’ve been really looking forward to Shazam: Fury of the Gods, so it does suck I have to wait a bit longer. Apparently it’s also because Warner Bros. Discovery doesn’t have the money to market their movies…but that’s a talk for another time.
