The Aquaman movie has an official release date (at least for now)


The DC Cinematic Universe isn’t going as swimmingly as Warner Bros execs might have hoped. Both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were flooded with negative reviews, and it looks like The Flash movie with Ezra Miller may be lost at sea after director Rick Famuyiwa left the project. Still, Wonder Woman looks like it could turn the tide and keep these movies afloat, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League will likely… jeez, I don’t know. Something about water or sea life.

Oh and Aquaman is going to happen. James Wan is set to direct the film (he’s been attached to the project since 2015) with dreamy Jason Manoa as the underwater beefcake. So long as Wan doesn’t abandon ship, the King of Atlantis should make waves on the big screen on October 5, 2018.

Fish. (The best Aquaman is still the Batman: The Brave and the Bold version of Aquaman voiced by John DiMaggio.)

Are you so excited about Aquaman that you can’t kelp yourself? Do you think the movie will tank? Did you read this in Gene Shalit’s voice? Leave a comment below.
