The #DCEU is about to bring the heat this summer with Wonder Woman in her first solo feature film before we finally see the Amazing Amazon team up with Cyborg, the Flash, Batman, Superman and Aquaman in the #JusticeLeague movie later this year.

Unfortunately for Aquaman fans, they'll have to wait a little longer to see the King of Atlantis again after #JusticeLeague. Warner Bros. announced the upcoming solo Aquaman movie, which was originally scheduled to be released on October 5th, 2018, will now be swimming into theaters two months later on December 21, 2018.

Will Changing Tides Affect The Throne Of Atlantis?
The news doesn't necessarily mean the production has sailed into troubled waters. In fact, the change now places Aquaman in a slot previously reserved what was believed to be the release date for James Cameron's long-awaited Avatar 2. Last week, Cameron revealed that the first sequel to his 2009 box-office smash had been delayed with no further details.
Superhero fans should also take note that Aquaman will now also be released on the same date as Sony's #SpiderMan (Miles Morales) animated movie. So it looks like there will be no shortage of geeky goodness to be had next holiday season.
However, the future of the #DCEU appears to be in flux. Both The Batman and The Flash are undergoing rewrites and both films have had a change of directors in recent months. A whirlwind of rumors surrounding the extent of Ben Afflecks' involvement in The Batman have also been whipping through the web.
Nevertheless, the DCEU films currently in production seem to be experiencing smooth sailing. Zack Snyder even recently gave us a sneak peak of Aquaman in action on Twitter and it looks like nothing we've seen before.
The delay seems to be a positive sign that Warner Bros. has faith in the film and the king of the seven seas will rule the holiday box office.
Does 'Aquaman's delay worry you?
