DC and Warner Bros. have delayed a bunch of superhero movies

Several upcoming movies in the DC Extended Universe have had their release dates changed, suggesting any accompanying LEGO sets will be similarly affected.

As reported by IGN, five DC Comics superhero movies will now be releasing on different dates that previously scheduled. Most of these release dates have been pushed forward, meaning (in some cases) they will debut later than expected. The one exception is Shazam: Fury of the Gods, which will now appear this year.

The full list of changes includes:

Aquaman 2: was December 2022, now March 17, 2023

Black Adam: was July 2022, now October 21, 2022

The Flash: was November 2022, now June 23, 2023

DC League of Super-Pets: was May 2022, now July 29, 2022

Shazam: Fury of the Gods: was mid-2023, now December 16, 2022

Of these characters, Aquaman, the Flash and Shazam have all received minifigures inspired by their DCEU movie appearances. Krypto, Superman’s super-powered dog, has also made a single appearance in LEGO form. While no LEGO tie-in sets were announced for any of these films, the DCEU has often served as inspiration for LEGO models in the past. As such, some kind of LEGO tie-in was plausible – especially since the LEGO DC line is in dire need of fresh blood.

Until we get official word from the LEGO Group, though, it’s safe to say these sets are as absent as these films are at the moment.
