Warner Bros. Pictures have announced that James Wan’s upcoming “Aquaman” film has been pushed back by two months. Instead of opening on October 5th 2018, it now hits December 21st 2018.
The move comes shortly after the delay of “Avatar 2” from that December date. With “Aquaman” moving in, a Warner Brothers untitled ‘event movie’ set for Christmas next year looks likely to move. “Aquaman” will now open against Sony’s animated “Spider-Man” film and just days before Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns”.
Jason Momoa reprises the role following a brief debut in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and a much larger role in the forthcoming “Justice League” opening in November. Other cast members from the “Aquaman” film are expected to make in appearance in “Justice League”.
Joining Momoa in the full film are the likes of Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison as his parents, Patrick Wilson as his brother Orm, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, and Willem Dafore as Vulko. Shooting is slated to begin in April.
