Sorry DC fans, looks like you'll have to wait a little bit longer to see Jason Momoa become Aquaman. The movie, which was originally supposed to come out in November 2018, has been pushed back two months and is now slated for December of that same year.
But the December release may prove a better strategy for the Warner Bros film, since it means the studio has faith the fans will absolutely love it. This also means the king of the sea will have to compete with Sony's animated Spider-Man instead of Fede Alvarez's The Girl in the Spider's Web.
Momoa made a brief appearance as the king of the sea in Batman V Superman and is set to appear in the November 17 Justice League movie.
As we previously reported, there have been multiple rewrites to the original storyline, so we are not sure what director James Wan has in store for us beneath the waves.
We do know the film will star Amber Heard as Queen Mera of Atlantis, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm (Aquaman's half-brother), Nicole Kidman as Aquaman's mother. and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
Wilson's Orm will team up with Black Manta (rumored to be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) to get revenge on his half-brother and take the throne of Atlantis.
“It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be really fun," writer Will Beall told Collider. "What we’ve come up with and James [Wan] especially — he has a really clear idea of the tone he’s going to have, and I think Aquaman is one that’s going to blow people’s minds, not just visually, but I think the story and the scope of it is really great.”
Momoa has reportedly signed on for four movies, though we still do not know if these include his BvS cameo and his Justice League appearance. There will also be a Justice League 2 somewhere down the line, so get used to seeing him around.
Aquaman is set to make its new theatrical splash December 21, 2018.
