Things aren’t looking good underwater as we’ve just learned that the release for ‘Aquaman‘ has been pushed back two months. Originally set to be released on July 27th, 2018 it was already pushed back until October 5th, 2018 and has now been delayed until December 21st, 2018. This date is the one which we already had Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie set for that will include Miles Morales as the web slinger instead of Peter Parker. While the rise in superhero movies have made it so that many have similar release dates, this will be interesting to see play out.
While I’d usually vote that Marvel Studios has the upper hand, this is another joint effort with Sony and on top of that is an animated feature vs. a live action one. It’ll be hard to tell how this will play out at the box office but I suspect that Warner Brothers might just come out as the winner this time around.
DC fans will already be won over, and not everyone who loves Marvel Studios will pay the price of admission for an animated feature, even if it is adult oriented and not for children. At this time, we’re still unsure who the target audience is.
Are you looking forward to ‘Aquaman’? Do you think it’ll sink or swim at the box office when going up against an animated Spider-Man film? Share your thoughts below!
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
‘Aquaman’ will swim into theaters on December 21st, 2018.
