Aquaman Film Gets Pushed Back (Yet Again)

Credit: Warner Bros

Ever since the DC Extended Universe was announced, I have been excited for precisely two films.

Those films are Wonder Woman, who with each trailer continues to get my hopes up, and Aquaman. Why? Because I freaking like Aquaman. When Jason Momoa was announced as the titular hero, I got even more excited. I like Jason Momoa from Stargate: Atlantis and was excited for this role.

Also, from a purely vain perspective, I want to see Jason Momoa wet and shirtless for two hours. I am not a hard woman to please here, people. Also I want this film to FINALLY dismantled all that bullshit about Aquaman being a lesser hero that got around thanks to Superfriends.

Watch Justice League and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, then try to tell me he’s not freaking badass.

Originally, the film was slated to be released in summer of 2018. It was then pushed back to October 2018.

Now, the film has been pushed back to December 2018.

That’s right. It has been pushed back. AGAIN. 

What the hell, Warner Brothers? How about pushing back The Flash? As far as I know, you’ve haven’t gotten your third director yet. Also, as far as I know, they’re still eyeing a release for 2018. At least, Aquaman has started production!

Now, granted, they’re probably hoping to capitalized on the holiday audiences.

It’s just that Aquaman seems to be a bizarre fit to me for December, but whatever. Since Warner Bros is hoping that it will hook in audiences, then it means that they have faith in the project.


Aquaman will now be released on December 21, 2018.
