Warner’s ‘Black Adam’ to Begin Streaming on HBO Max Dec. 16 — Ahead of Packaged-Media Release

New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures Dec. 9 announced that the DC Comics superhero actioner Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson, will make its free streaming debut on HBO Max on Dec. 16.

The movie, the first of many DC-themed superhero actioners planned by Warner Bros., generated about $385 million in box office revenue worldwide, including $165 million across North America.

The announcement would appear to undermine the studio’s packaged-media home entertainment strategy, as Black Adam isn’t scheduled to be released on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K UHD Blu-ray until Jan. 3, 2023. The movie has been available across digital retail platforms since Nov. 22.

Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” One Night in Miami) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” Rush Hour 3), Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express, Aladdin), Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Mohammed Amer (“Mo,” “Ramy”), Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”), and Pierce Brosnan (the James Bond and Mamma Mia! franchises) as Doctor Fate.
