Warner Bros It continues to give something to talk about and they are not particularly positive topics.

This time Ezra Miller It has nothing to do with it, but the movies of DC, since some suffered some changes in their release dates. Which ones are we talking about? Shazam 2 and Aquaman 2.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods It was originally scheduled to be released on December 21, but they decided to move it to March 17, 2023. This, in fact, was the date announced for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom on the release schedule, however, since that day is now busy, they pushed it back to December 25.
What happened? Why was there a change of dates? The directors of the films, who together with the announcement shared images of their deliveries, gave their reasons. While some rumors suggest that the delays have more to do with the financial problems of Warner.
On the one hand, the director of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, David F. Sandberg, shared on your account Instagram the news of the delay and commented that he was doing the final mix for the film. In addition, he hinted that the date change is due to not wanting to share a month with the sequel to Avatar, which would hit theaters on December 16. “Avatar 2 you can have December, we can have IMAX screens. It will be great. But Cameron now he definitely owes me a 4K release of The Abyss“.
on the side of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdomdirector james wan He also posted on his social networks the reasons for the delay along with several images of concept art from the film. He first clarified that he is a bit superstitious and that is why he likes it to be released in December like the first installment.
Nevertheless, wan later he wrote: “Here’s a little glimpse of some artwork in the big, epic world-building we’re creating, and I need time to get it right. These images barely scratch the surface of this movie (I haven’t shown the weird and wonderful characters and creatures of this world yet). I can’t wait to show but you’ve got to wait a little longer“.
Despite each director’s reasons for delaying the films of DCthere are some people who believe that these changes are due to the financial problems you are going through Warner. After all, the studio not long ago canceled batgirl for this reason and continues to reorganize itself after its merger with Discovery.
