'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom' Release Date Pushed Back to 2023 - The Santa Clarita Valley Proclaimer

The film is just one of several upcoming DCEU projects to experience delays.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the highly anticipated sequel to Jason Momoa's first outing as Arthur Curry in the 2018 fim Aquaman from director James Wan.

And while many fans thought that we would be getting our next look at Arthur in 2022 (especially with the DC Comics teaser video that showed what was up next for the franchise in 2022).

But today, it was announced that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has officially been pushed to 2023.

According to Variety, the film was pushed due to COVID-19 related production delays in the visual effects department.

The film moved from a Christmas release date in 2022 to a March 17, 2023 release date.

While it is not a huge push, it does mean that we will not be getting a big look at Aquaman this year.

He acts as a defender of the ocean until destiny calls on his intervention in the Atlantian royal affairs after his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) orchestrates a conflict with the surface.
