DC's 'Aquaman' release date pushed back

Los Angeles [USA], Mar.17 (ANI): The King of Atlantis might have to wait a little longer to swim to the theatres.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has pushed back the date of DC's much-awaited superhero flick 'Aquaman' to December 21, 2018.

The movie is shifting into a slot, which was earlier occupied by an untitled film from James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment that was presumably being held for 'Avatar 2,' but Cameron announced last week that the sequel of 'Avatar' would no longer be released in 2018.

Now, James Wan's directorial will go head-to-head with Sony/Marvel's 'Spider-Man' movie.

The flick sees Jason Momoa playing the titular role, with Amber Heard starring as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Aquaman's advisor-

scientist Dr. Vulko and Patrick Wilson will play Orm, a villain who is also Aquaman's half-brother.

Momoa will also be seen as Aquaman in November's 'Justice League'. (ANI)
