Although the news is harsh, several people took to trolling and the alleged delay of the DCU movies.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently set for a release date of 20th December 2023. As per the reports, James Gunn reportedly ordered Aquaman 2 to undergo reshoots.

As per a source close to the news, The Hollywood Reporter stated that James Gunn ordered reshoots of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom for a third time after seeing the first two initial screenings.

“While a timeline is not clear, from summer 2022 to the beginning of 2023, The Lost Kingdom underwent two rounds of reshoots and held several uninspiring test screenings.[James] Gunn is said to have weighed in on the most recent cut and the leadership approved a five-day shoot. Sources say the shoot went so well that [James] Wan and company completed what they needed in only four.”

With reshoots underway and the strike going strong, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has not been confirmed to face delays. It is however inevitable that if the strikes continue then several projects of the DCU, the MCU, and Hollywood will be delayed by a significant time.
