Warner Bros. has moved its standalone Aquaman film starring Jason Momoa from the summer blockbuster window to a fall release in 2018.
Previously slated for a July 27, 2018 rollout — Aquaman will now open on October 5 of that year (previously believed to be reserved for an untitled DC/Warner Bros. film).
This was the timeframe speculated for the standalone Batman film starring Ben Affleck, which means said project might be pushed back for a spring 2019 release. Though it’s possible (if rather unlikely) Warner Bros. could have “The Batman” in mind for Aquaman‘s July 27, 2018 spot, especially if shooting really begins as early as spring 2017.
The Flash (starring Ezra Miller) is still slated for a March 16, 2018 release date, maintaining the DCEU’s steady “two-films-per-year” strategy that seems to be unfolding. Other superhero flicks set for 2018 include Black Panther (February 16), Avengers:Infinity War (May 4), Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6), Alita: Battle Angel (July 20), and Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie (December 21).
