Warner Bros.’ DC Film Slate Delay Could Help ‘Aquaman 2’ and ‘Shazam 2’ at the Box Office


‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ will no longer compete directly with another hit sequel in ‘Avatar 2’

Dwayne Johnson and Warner Bros. zapped fans on Wednesday when they announced DC would be pushing back its entire movie slate — including Johnson’s highly anticipated “Black Adam” and “DC League of Super-Pets.” But those delays could end up putting two other DC sequels, “Shazam: Fury of the Gods” and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” in a better position for box office success.

As with their Disney and Marvel studio counterparts, Warner Bros. and DC Films postponed most of their movies to placeholder release dates, with “Super-Pets” moving from May to the slot previously held by “Black Adam” on July 29. Meanwhile, “Black Adam” will open on October 21, “Aquaman 2” will land in March 2023, and “The Flash” will air in June 2023.
