Black Adam Digital Release Date: The digital release date for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam has been set earlier than most DCU fans expected.
The long-awaited DC Studios epic has been out for over a month and hasn’t set the box office on fire. Despite its release to less-than-rave reviews, the picture has made a paltry $366 million at the box office (less than Black Panther: Wakanda Forever did in two weeks).
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays the title character in Black Adam, has repeatedly defended the movie since its October premiere.
However, it appears Black Adam will return home sooner than many may have anticipated just a short time after the film’s first premiere.
Black Adam Digital Release Date
The DVD and Blu-ray release date for Black Adam has been set for January 3, 2023, while the Digital HD release date is November 22, 2022 (through Amazon Video and iTunes).
On Tuesday, November 22nd, exactly one month after its theatrical release, Black Adam will become available on digital platforms. The next day, Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023, will be available on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD. The picture has broken multiple box office records in the past month since its launch, yet it is still apparently banned from release in China, along with the second major superhero movie of the fall, Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
This development follows recent comments by David Zaslav, the current CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, who indicated that the studio would be experimenting with different approaches to releasing some films rather than simply attempting to shift them from the theatrical to the HBO Max streaming format.
What Is Black Adam About?
In Black Adam, played by Dwayne Johnson, nearly five thousand years have passed since Black Adam was granted godlike abilities by the Egyptian gods, only to be promptly imprisoned. Black Adam has been released from his tomb and is prepared to impose his own brand of justice on the modern world.
Jaume Collett-Serra, who directed Jungle Cruise, will helm the superhero film Black Adam, which will also star Aldis Hodge (The Invisible Man, Underground) as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets, Euphoria) as Cyclone, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I Love Before, Charlie’s Angels) as Atom Smasher, Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye, Mamma Mia!)
Will There Be A Black Adam Sequel?
Although Warner Bros. has not confirmed the production of a second Black Adam film, speculation of such an endeavor has generated considerable buzz. When taken together with the film’s strong opening weekend, we may not have to wait too long.
