Now, with the average blockbuster movie now receiving a release date a couple of years in advance of release — often long before even entering production — it can be pretty easy to lose track of just what is hitting theaters, and which decade it's hitting them in. What's more, that trend is all the more powerful when it comes to big budget superhero movies, with both the MCU and the #DCEU already competing for release slots as far away as 2020. That sort of long-distance planning, though, is by its very nature inexact, and as such has led to all sorts of adjustments, tweaks, and outright indefinite delays. Which might just make it a little less surprising that...
Aquaman's Solo Movie Won't Be Arriving As Soon As You Think It Will
Yup, that's right. While we were all expecting to see #DC's preeminent Atlantean monarch's debut solo movie hit theaters on July 27, 2018, it now seems that such an advanced (read: over a year and a half away) arrival isn't actually in the cards. Instead, Warner Bros. recently announced that #Aquaman will officially arrive on October 5, 2018, meaning we'll now have to wait closer to two years to see #JasonMomoa's fishy king make his solo debut.
Thankfully, though, fans of slightly damp royalty won't have to wait anywhere near that long to spend an hour or two in the cinematic company of Aquaman — he's set to feature prominently in November 2017's #JusticeLeague, a movie that will likely give audiences a far better idea of the character's role in the DCEU than his brief cameo back in #BatmanVSuperman.
Whether it'll be enough to tide Aquamanophiles over until the Fall of 2018, though, very much remains to be seen.
