‘Aquaman 2’ And ‘Shazam 2’ Release Postponed To 2023 By Warner Bros; Leaves The Internet Divided

Despite all the hurdles thrown at DC—courtesy of Ezra Miller and Amber Heard controversies—it continues to thrive due to the immense support of ardent fans. From Black Adam to Shazam! Fury of the Gods, fans are eagerly waiting for several ventures from Warner Bros. However, it appears as though they will have to wait a little longer than expected to flock to the theatres to witness their favourite superheroes in action.

As per a report from Deadline, Warner Bros. continues to shuffle its titles by moving up ventures from their original release date that fans were hyped about. James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which was originally set to release on March 17, 2023, has been postponed to December 25, 2023.

On the other hand, David F. Sandberg’s Shazam: Fury of the Gods gets a new release date to March 17, 2023, as opposed to its original slate of December 21, 2022. In doing so, WB avoided a clash between Shazam 2 and James Cameron’s Avatar 2 but pit Jason Momoa’s sequel against it. Other films release dates are as follows: Evil Dead Rise- April 4, 2023, The Nun 2– September 8, 2023 and Salem’s Lot– Yet-to-be-announced.

With new updates come unpredictable reactions. The fandom seemed divided over Warner Bros’ decision to move up the release dates of the two most anticipated DC films. While moaned and groaned in frustration as they would have to wait another year for the films, many thought it was a wise decision. Check out the tweets below.

Responding to the announcements, Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg shared an insight into the decision by tweeting, ”While I’m an impatient bastard who wants people to see it as soon as possible (the film will be fully done in just a few weeks), the move makes sense since Avatar was taking all IMAX/PLF screens. Fury of the Gods is a big movie & should be seen big!”.
