“Aquaman’s” release date has been pushed back by two months. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the DC Extended Universe installment will now open on December 21, 2018 instead of its original release date of October 5, 2018.
If you’re disappointed that you’ll have to wait a little longer to see Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in action, don’t worry too much! The King of Atlantis will also have a big role in “Justice League,” which arrives in theaters later this year. However, you’ll have to hang on for another year or so before his solo adventure swims into theaters.
According to the film’s synopsis, which hails from Acting-Audtions.org,
“Aquaman” will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface. Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jason Momoa will play Aquaman. Also starring is Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Hollywood Film Awards winner Amber Heard as Mera, two-time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, New Zealand Film and TV Awards winner Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
Directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm) and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), “Aquaman” swims into theaters on December 21, 2018. Aquaman will next be seen in “Justice League,” which opens on November 17.
