Warner Bros.' Slate Shift Affects 'Aquaman' Sequel, 'The Flash', 'Shazam! Fury of the Gods', and More

By InCinemas  /  10 Mar 2022 (Thursday)

Bad news for DC fans looking forward to Warner Bros.' slew of upcoming superhero films.

Due to the overwhelming flow of VFX-heavy material, the studio is forced to delay its content once again as production houses clamour to meet timelines against the effects of COVID. 

Affected are the previously announced superhero films such as the Aquaman sequel and The Flash whose premiere dates are pushed from December 15 to March 16, 2023 and November 3 to June 22, 2023 respectively. Also on the move is this year’s Dwayne Johnson-led Black Adam, from July 28 to October 20.

But fret not as its not all bad news!

While his fellow superheroes get their films delayed, one hero sees his film getting an earlier release.
  Aquaman's December departure left the opportunity for Shazam! Fury of the Gods to move up from June 1, 2023, to December 15, 2022.

Zachary Levi will return as the DC hero in the sequel from director David F. Sanberg. The film continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “Shazam!” is struck by the Living Lightning of the gods and transformed into his adult superhero alter ego. Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, and Asher Angel also star.
