Underperforming shouldn’t be a difficulty to market this film though. They could’ve done something similar to Justice League and Aquaman.
Justice League, much like Godzilla: King of the Monsters, was a box office underperformance (arguably the highest grossing blockbuster flop) and was criticized by critics and audiences alike. It also had a very long marketing campaign, starting in SDCC 2016 (16 months before its release), another trailer 8 months before, another Comic-Con trailer at SDCC 2017, and a final one in October, a month before release in November.
Aquaman came out roughly a year later and had its first trailer in Comic-Con 2018 (5 months before release) and a final trailer in November, a month before its release in December. Whereas JL was a flop and the lowest grossing DCEU until Shazam came out, Aquaman surprised and became the highest grossing film in the franchise and the first DCEU film to cross $1B.
Warner Bros. could’ve done something similar here but GvK is only coming out roughly 10 months after KOTM (more recent and fresh in the minds of general audiences), and it’s 4 months away without nothing. A trailer should’ve come out by now, attached to Joker. That banner that came out months ago, was only released to the public because it was leaked. Meaning it wouldn’t have been released had it not been leaked.
At this point, it’s understandable to assume a delay for the film.
