Having to wait another three months for the movie might be painful for movie fans, but that’s exactly what they’ll have to do when it comes to Shazam! Fury of the gods.” However, according to an article published Term, the benefits of the change justify the expectation. The postponement from December 21, 2022 to March 17, 2023 means that Shazam! Fury of the Gods could avoid the same release month as Disney’s Avatar: The Way of the Water.
Avatar: The Way of Water is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 Oscar-winning film Avatar, which won awards for visual effects and cinematography. (via IMDb). Transferring Shazam! Fury of the Gods March 2023, Warner Bros. ensures that the film will have access to IMAX screens that would otherwise likely be occupied by Avatar: The Path of Water audiences.
DC fans aren’t exactly impressed with the delay and one of them pointed to via twitter that this is the sixth release date for Shazam! Fury of the Gods”. Meanwhile, another tweet made by @blake_gordon17 says, “Put off Shazam! Wrath of the Gods for March is probably a smart idea because going up against Avatar could hurt their box office performance.”
So, given the recent chaos in the world of Warner Bros. and DC might have been wise to delay the film’s release yet again. There’s no doubt that the upcoming DC movies will be spectacular, even if that means fans will have to wait even longer to see them.
