‘Aquaman’ Release Date Moves Two Months; ‘The Batman’ Beginning Production in 2018

Mar 17, 2017

So a bunch of little DCEU news debuted this week. It was revealed earlier this week that with Matt Reeves boarding The Batman but still working on War for the Planet of the Apes pre-production on the film won’t begin until late summer on The Batman. This means that filming won’t begin on the project until early 2018. Most attribute the production date pushed due to Ben Affleck’s admission to a rehabilitation facility for alcoholism or the rumor around the internet that the film is going through a page-1 rewrite. However, neither have been confirmed as being the reason for the push. The latter reason not even being reported on by any major trade. It may be as simple as Matt Reeves needs to finish one massive blockbuster before tackling another.

On the other end of the universe, it was revealed today that Aquaman has moved dates by two months taking over AVATAR 2 in December. The massively anticipated film will now hit Christmas week on December 21st, 2018. Justin Kroll of Variety added that since The Batman won’t begin filming until next year WB wants to get a second film into production after Aquaman. Five films are being considered which include Gotham City Sirens, The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Suicide Squad 2 or Dark Universe.  However, if the studio can’t lock down a story for any of these they will be content just going into production on Aquaman alone this year.
