James Wan’s Aquaman gets new release date as Warners consider filming another DC movie this year

March 17th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Ok, so the first bit of DC news for you today is that James Wan’s Aquaman is set to be a Christmas present!

Yes, the movie’s new release date is December 21st 2018, pushed back two months from October 5, 2018. Aquaman for Christmas? Works for us…

Anyway, it seems that with Aquaman filming this year, DC/Warners are keen to film something else this year.

But, before anyone panics, according to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, they won’t set anything to film unless the script is right (See his Tweets below).

Apparently they have Gotham City Sirens, The Flash, Green Lantern, Suicide Squad 2 and Dark Universe (the Justice League Dark movie) in their sights to film if time and script permit.

These are all movies we are very keen to see, but we pray that, as much as we loved Suicide Squad, they give the movies the time they deserve to be as good as possible before rushing in front of the cameras.

With all these movies at various stages of pre-production, we could have an announcement of filming soon.

What do you all think? Let us know….

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
