Warner Bros. pushes back the release of James Wan's Aquaman

12.02.2016

Much of the general public associates Aquaman with the recurring jokes about his abilities, or lack thereof, as well as his sparkly orange and green costume, but when you cast a man like Jason Momoa in the role, you're making a big statement: don't f**k with the guy who talks to fish. Momoa made a very brief cameo appearance in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, but our first real introduction to the character will arrive in Zack Snyder's upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE on November 17, 2017. The plan was for Aquaman's standalone movie to hit theaters on July 27, 2018, but Warner Bros. have now pushed that date back by several months.

AQUAMAN will now be released on, drumroll please, October 5, 2018. No reason has been given for the shift, but the delay will definitely give director James Wan more time to spend on all aspects of the project. We still don't know all that much about AQUAMAN just yet, but Wan has previously teased that the spirit he's going for is "like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story, it's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone." Certainly sounds like fun to me. The upcoming DCEU flick will star Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.

Even though I'm not the biggest fan of Aquaman, I do like the more badass barbaric physical look they accomplished by casting Momoa who looks like he could easily go head to head physically and super power wise with Superman, and Batman. And Wan is one of the best, most exciting and refreshing directors working today and can't wait to see what type of vision he brings to this film and the DCEU; especially the underwater scenes.

And even though it's sucks to wait longer than expected, I

And even though it's sucks to wait longer than expected, I would rather see DC take their time and make the best film they can with one of their more riskier characters.

Really looking forward to this! I honestly think James Wan is one of the best crowd-pleasing, mainstream directors around (has the whole auteur thing going, but fantastic at making movies that engage the audience). Any more time to develop the project is good time, and it looks like WB is learning their lesson to not stick to a release date, but let the flow of the project dictate when it's done.

Charisma!!!

If it is Romacing the Stone / Raiders of the lost ark, let's not forget the other thing they have in common besides tone, a charismatic as hell lead (Michael Douglas and Harrison Ford).
By the way they have depicted the Aquaman character so far, he is a badass, but serious as hell, this means that either this movie will have another actor in the lead and Aquaman would be a secondary character, or that they might change Aquaman's personality and make it more friendly. None of these sound like

None of these sound like good ideas, I'm a bit worried....

No Problem

I can only imagine something like this is super tricky to try and get right. Special effects have to be off the charts if most of the scenes will/should be under water. Take the time to get it right....please. DC is not doing too well with these things.

Makes sense to me. Now they don't have to compete against Mission Impossible or Ant Man 2. And Dr. Strange seems to have proven that these superhero movies can do big business later in the year.

Absolutely. If the studio knows they have an inferior product (AquaMan), no sense putting it up against two movies guaranteed to be better. Save it for a week where it has a chance to look somewhat good, even if only for a few days. DC needs another reboot.

Honestly, these DC films from other filmmakers keep looking better and better. DC's biggest problem is Zack Snyder. He doesn't just make bad movies, but he destroys the core concept of these characters that will haunt all future DC films. He can't go fast enough.

The Suicide Squad trailers were awesome, then the movie came out. I really hope Wonder Woman is great.
