The upheavals of Warner after merging with Discovery are not finished yet, far from it. The calendar of cinema releases is being profoundly turned upside down today, as reported by the HollywoodReporters ince two of blockbusters coming to the stable DC Movies are pushed back – and not just a little.
Patience, patience, patience
As the American specialized media reveals to us, the longest delay is to be attributed to Aquamant & The Lost Kingdom. The movie of James Wansecond opus of the franchise dedicated to Aquaman (Jason Momoa), was previously scheduled for March 17, 2023. It is now being pushed back to December 25, 2023, nearly ten months (!). Perhaps a way to Warner Bros. Discovery to reproduce the success of the first film, which was released in December 2018 – so in the end, without further delay, five years will have passed between the releases of the two films, which now has an incredibly long time left to refine its post-production.
As a more or less direct consequence, it is Shazam! : Fury of the Gods (Where The Rage of the Gods in VF), yet widely presented in trailers with the latest trailer at SDCC 2022which sees its exit from this end of the year postponed by three months to go to the March 17, 2023i.e. the one occupied by Aquaman 2 just before (we remember that the film had been brought forward to December 2022 when it was scheduled for June 2023 previously). One way, according to HollywoodReporterto spread the costs of marketing and distribution for Warner Bros. Discoverysince “savings” seems to be the keyword for the new boss, David Zaslav. From what the journalist says Borys Kit the situation at Warner is a real mess.
The moves underscore what a financial mess Warner Bros. Discovery is as the studio has only enough cash to release 2 movies from now to the end of this year (Don’t Worry Darling and Black Adam). https://t.co/qZReE7BO6W
