Black Adam HBO Max release date confirmed

HBO Max, Black Adam, streaming release

Although Black Adam wasn’t quite the game-changer it was made out to be, the DC Universe movie was still a lot of fun. If you missed seeing Black Adam in theaters, or simply want to watch it again in the comfort of your own home, Warner Bros. has announced that Black Adam will make its streaming debut on HBO Max on December 16th. That’s just one week away.

In ancient Kahndaq, the slave Teth Adam was gifted the almighty powers of the gods,” reads the official Black Adam synopsis. “But he used those powers for vengeance and was imprisoned. Now, 5,000 years later, he is freed and once again wields his dark sense of justice onto the world. Refusing to surrender, Teth Adam is challenged by a team of modern-day heroes known as the Justice Society—Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone—who seek to return him to eternal captivity.Black Adam was a long time coming, and the project was undoubtedly hyped to the max before its release. Unfortunately, the film has received mixed reviews and has only grossed $384 million worldwide against a budget of anywhere between $195-230 million. There have been battles over whether Black Adam will turn a profit or not, with some saying that it could lose $50 million, while star Dwayne Johnson tweeted that it would net over $50 million when all was said and done.

With a mid-credits scene featuring an appearance from the Man of Steel, Black Adam not only set the stage for its own sequel but also Henry Cavill’s return as Superman. But once again, there’s potentially bad news. As James Gunn and Peter Safran lay out their plans for the new DC Universe, it’s clear that some big changes are coming. Wonder Woman 3 is no longer moving forward, and it’s not looking good for Black Adam 2 or Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel 2.
