‘Aquaman’ Gets Pushed Back

The DCEU has been working and working to catch up to the other superhero powerhouses of the age, and they’ve for the most part missed the mark. Their movies have been noted for being general messes that tend to divide their audience into those who hate it with a passion or love it with equal passion. This was evident with their third film, Suicide Squad, which came out this Summer to the admiration or disappointment its audience. But somehow this universe that just can’t seem to get the superhero movie right still has many waiting anxiously for the next installment. With Wonder Woman only months away now and Justice League not long after, the DCEU is something we’re all still crossing our fingers for, and this news may bum you out but it may be for the best.

Aquaman has been moved off its date of July 27th, 2018 to October 5th, 2018. It is unclear why this move has been made for a movie that is still so far off. One plausible theory is to move the film away from Mission Impossible 6. Let’s face it, those movies have had quite a bit more success in the moolah department than the DCEU films. No need for Tom Cruise mv5byjmyzjzmzjitzjywmc00mzqzlwjjymutmji4zdayzdnjyje3xkeyxkfqcgdeqxvymzy0nta5ndu-_v1_uy268_cr1470182268_al_dipping into the DCEU’s money pool. As of right now Aquaman has no competition in its new slot, and October isn’t so bad. I mean as of right now the DCEU films haven’t been doing too well, so why throw it into a Summer that will surely be packed? Not to mention even with khal Drogo himself playing the title role there is still the prejudices attached to Aquaman and in turn an Aquaman movie. They seem to be trying to avoid risk. But as earlier stated, this movie doesn’t come out for almost two years. If the response to him in Justice League is better than expected they might just movie it back up.

So what do you think? Is this a good or bad sign? Do you think Jason Momoa can carry a movie? Is Aquaman just a sea-nerd? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on Aquaman and everything else in the movie world.

Aquaman comes to US theaters October 5th, 2018. It is directed by James Wan and will star Jason Momoa as the title character, as well as Amber Heard as Mera and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
