Aquaman Movie in 2015?
Widespread across the Internet was Smallville guest star Alan Ritchson's opinion that an Aquaman move would happen in the future, but Screen Rant claims to have a little more of an inside track on said film, believing it could reach theates in 2015 or 2016.
"I spoke with a source at Warner Bros. and they are indeed planning an Aquaman film… but it’s certainly not going to be released in 2013," writes Paul Young. "In fact, they are looking at a release date closer to 2015 or 2016 if everything goes according to plan. Warner Bros. will team up with Leo DiCaprio’s production studio Appian Way (Red Riding Hood, Shutter Island) to make the underwater film a reality. Warner Bros. however, considers Aquaman to be a third tier superhero character and they aren’t in a hurry to invest heavily in him. Since 75% to 80% of an Aquaman film would most likely take place underwater, the movie would need a massive budget of close to an estimated $200 million to make that happen – and Warner Bros. probably doesn’t think they would recoup those costs just yet.
"Before Aquaman fans can see the classic orange and green streaking through the ocean’s waves," Young continues, "they will have to wait for another Batman and Superman film, as well as The Flash, Wonder Woman and even Green Lantern 2 to be released first. That’s at least 5 to 7 years worth of films in the WB pipeline before Aquaman can even think about fighting underwater crime."
