Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is coming to HBO Max.

WarnerMedia has announced that Black Adam is set to hit its streaming service HBO Max on December 16, 2023. The Dwayne Johnson starrer is already available via video-on-demand through digital retailers like Amazon, Vudu and Apple TV.

Black Adam has so far earned close to $390 million, a rather disappointing figure considering that the movie cost about $200 million to produce before marketing costs. While a Black Adam sequel does not appear to be a part of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe plans, Dwayne Johnson appears to be comitted to the role of the anti-hero.

The future of the DC Universe

Black Adam is the latest comic book-related project from Warner Bros. Discovery, which recently tapped James Gunn and Peter Safran to lead its DC Studios division. Their goal is to guide DC’s film, television and animation efforts over the next few years, creating an interconnected universe.

Shazam! Fury of the GodsThe FlashBlue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui and Pierce Brosnan.
