Warner Bros. Discovery has pushed back the release of ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ and ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’.
Changes are ongoing at Warner Bros. Discovery, in which high-profile DC projects are currently set back. Shazam! Fury of the Gods was initially due to be released one week after Avatar: The Way of Water on December 21, 2022, however, the sequel will now be released on March 17, 2023, which was originally slated to be the release date of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. On the other hand, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is now set to hit cinemas on December 25, 2023.
Due to budgetary constraints, Warner Bros. Discovery can only distribute Don’t Worry, Darling, and Black Adam this year. March and December have been strong months for DC pictures in recent years, with the first Aquaman film’s success in 2018 and The Batman’s earlier this year.
Changes to the publication date come in the midst of upheaval for other DC titles, most notably Batgirl. The $90 million film, originally intended for HBO Max, has been put a brake on and will not be released on any platform, despite being totally done.
