The Flash, Black Adam, Aquaman 2 And More See Release Dates Shuffled

Warner Bros has shaken up its 2022 and 2023 release calendar with several delays and changes to major DC movie premiere dates


Movie theaters may be opening back up with some regularity, but the big wheel of release date changes and delays just keeps on spinning. Warner Bros. announced today that it was going to be reconfiguring the 2022 release date calendar, which means some changes for major DC releases like Black Adam, Shazam 2, Aquaman 2, and The Flash. Variety has reported the full update.

Most notable among the changes are Black Adam, bumped back three months to a new spot on October 21, while The Flash is jumping from November of this year to June 23, 2023. Meanwhile, Aquaman 2 is also skipping out of 2022 and moving to a new date on March 17, 2023. The animated feature DC League of Super-Pets is taking over Black Adam's old date, July 29, 2022.

However, Shazam 2, AKA Shazam! Fury of the Gods, is actually being pushed forward from June 2, 2023 to December 12, 2022.

So, to summarize, new DC movie release plan looks like this:

  • League of Super-Pets: July 29, 2022
  • Black Adam: October 21, 2022
  • Shazam 2: December 12, 2022
  • Aquaman 2: March 17, 2023
  • The Flash: June 23, 2023

Warner Bros. has also shuffled the new Willy Wonka movie, Wonka, to December 17, 2023 and The Meg 2 to August 4, 2023.
