Aquaman has been in theaters for over a month now, meaning that its time on the big screen is winding down. Since the gap between a movie finishing its theatrical run and arriving on home media is shorter than ever nowadays, some of you may be wondering when Aquaman will be available for purchase on Blu-ray and DVD. According to a new rumor, the sixth DC Extended Universe movie could drop on those formats on March 26.
This potential release date comes from The Digital Bits, which claims its sources have suggested March 26 as the "likeliest street date" for Aquaman. It goes without saying that this is by no means official, but if Aquaman does come out on Blu-ray and DVD on the last Tuesday of March, then that likely means that the digital release will precede it by two weeks (i.e. March 12), as is usually the case with home media releases nowadays. We'll have to wait and see if these are indeed the dates Warner Bros and DC drop Aquaman or if they have a different window in mind.
As one of the most visually stunning movies in the DCEU, you can bet there are a lot of people who are eager to be able to watch Aquaman in the comfort of their own home in high resolution. Of course, the movie has already cemented itself as a force to be reckoned with on the big screen. Although it came out in the second-to-last week of 2018, the superhero blockbuster has become the fifth highest-grossing movie of that year with its $1.067 billion worldwide haul. Critical reaction has been more mixed, but it will be interesting to see how well Aquaman sells on home media. Plus, just like with most major motion pictures, you can be sure there will be a lot of special features attached to the Aquaman Blu-ray, from deleted scenes to mini-documentaries.
Set after the events of Justice League, Aquaman followed Arthur Curry as he worked with allies like Mera and Vulko to stop his half-brother Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, from uniting the seven underwater kingdoms to attack the surface world. Along the way, Arthur and Mera also clashed with arguably Aquaman's most famous foe, the visually distinctive Black Manta. While Aquaman 2 hasn't officially gotten the green light, the movie definitely set the stage for a sequel, and Jason Momoa has been giving some thought on where the next story could go. Considering Aquaman's impressive commercial performance, it's a good bet that just like what happened with Wonder Woman, we'll be seeing Momoa's Arthur going on another solo adventure in the coming years.
