Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has just been delayed by quite a few months as it’ll now not hit theaters until December of 2023. OF course, an extra wait is going to be quite frustrating with the film has gone through a few delays already. Even Shazam: Fury of the Gods was pushed back and took its original March 2023 release date. Still, it seems that director James Wan didn’t want to keep people waiting too long for a glimpse at the sequel and took to his personal Instagram account to share some beautiful concept art.
What stands out is that this might be our first tease of the Lost Kingdom in the title of the project. Of course, it doesn’t give away an actual look or confirmation if this is indeed the relocation but it’s a fun addition to speculate. He also goes on to highlight that this is just a glimpse of what they have to offer, which definitely teases just how big the scope is for this sequel.
It’s a shame that the wait has been extended for quite a few months but we’ll hopefully get more teases as we get closer to the release. It is crazy to think that 2022 looked quite a bit different earlier this year when they teased releases of The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, and the Aquaman sequel in one year only for it to end up with two of the advertised releases. We’ll have to see just how consistent they will be with next year going by this trend currently.
