This week brings some exciting news about December’s Aquaman release and confirms reshoots for other highly anticipated DC films. Cast members of both Aquaman and Wonder Woman have discussed their expectations for the future of their characters and what might be next for the DCEU. Here is the latest update of all of the announcements and rumors that have released from November 9-15.
Aquaman is ready for the box office. The film’s runtime has reportedly been confirmed at 143 minutes by a document distributor by Vertical Entertainment which featured basic information about the film. The other information- studio, director, ext.- is already common knowledge but the 143 minutes run time would confirm what both fans and director James Wan anticipated as a 140-minute film. Additionally, Warner Bros. continues to fan the excitement flames by releasing two final Aquaman posters.
Those posters aren’t the only new promotional material keeping fan’s eyes on the movie. Warner Bros. and Fandango released a three minute behind the scenes featurette for the film. The video gives a glimpse of the intense special effects and elaborate costume design that has been teased for months. It looks as though Aquaman is shaping up to have serious impressive potential.

Wonder Woman’s Chris Pine is returning for the sequel Wonder Woman 1982, a decision that the actor says he is not surprised by. Pine played Wonder Woman’s friend and eventual love interest, Steve Trevor, in the first film. His character’s exit would lead fans to believe that Pine is finished with the franchise, but apparently, Pine knew before the first film was completed that he would return.
Last week, the Shazam! movie continued filming to work on reshoots. Director David Sandberg has assured fans that no drastic changes are being made to the film and that they are following the normal procedure for the studio. Sandberg confirmed this via Twitter, allowing the assumption that the movie is still on schedule for its April 5th release. Despite this, rumors are that reshoots have been extended until December 22 when they were originally planned to finish up this weekend. As Sandberg has pointed out in the past, reshoots are a good thing and the extended time may allow them to hone in the film better.
That’s all of this week. We’ll follow up with these stories and others next Friday.
