What is going on up there for Aquaman 2?
Warner Bros. Discovery is remodeling the whole house. In an exclusive bit of information from Deadline, we have learned some more changes. Starting off, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom aka Aquaman 2 got one big push from March 17, 2023, to December 25, 2023. The DCEU movie initially planned to release in December 2022, same as its Christmas 2018 release. This helped the movie to earn over $1 billion globally. But as the movie still seems to be undergoing reshoots, it’s understandable. Now let’s take a look at other Warner Bros. projects.
Warner Bros. Release Dates
Next up, is David F. Sandberg’s Shazam: Fury of the Gods. The movie was planned to release on December 21, but then got pushed to Aquaman 2‘s old date of March 17. But in Shazam‘s case, it’s another smart strategy as they can now have access to the Imax screens. Their old date meant they will have to compete with Avatar 2, and we all know whom box offices will support more.
Warner Bros. Discover CEO David Zaslav is delivering his promise of giving movies a theatrical release instead of releasing them straight to HBO Max. They will start with New Line Cinema’s House Party, which will be coming on December 9. This will be followed by Lee Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise, coming on April 21, 2023.
Along with Aquaman 2, Warner Bros. has more supernatural titles coming up, with Michael Chaves’ The Nun 2 set for September 8, 2023, the sequel to the 2018 movie, which was a spin-off off the Conjuring movies. The first movie made $53.8m in the domestic box office, and received decent reviews. Next up is Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, coming on April 21, 2023, which is currently in post production.
There is also an untitled movie, planned to be unveiled during Super Bowl weekend.
