In October 2022, the long-awaited Black Adam soared into theaters around the world and showed off the debut of Dwayne Johnson’s titular anti-hero as he took on the Justice Society and ushered in a new era for DC Comics movies. Despite being a bust with critics, Black Adam resonated with audiences, and ended up making a sizable chunk of change at the box office that may or may not be enough to prevent Warmer. Bros. Pictures from losing money in the long run. 

But if you weren’t one of the millions of moviegoers who helped the latest DC Comics movie rule the box office during the early days of its theatrical run (or maybe you want to watch it again from the comfort of your own home), the big-budget spectacle is now streaming on a popular subscription platform. Here’s everything you need to know to watch Black Adam streaming...

When And Where You Can Watch Black Adam Streaming

Considering Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Comics, and HBO Max all fall under the same corporate umbrella – Warner Bros. Discovery – there was never really any question about where Black Adam would land once it made its streaming debut, but the “when” in the situation was a bit of a mystery. Well, those with an HBO Max subscription will be happy to read that they can now watch Black Adam streaming as of Friday, December 16.

The news was confirmed in a “coming soon” trailer on the HBO Max website earlier in the month that teased some of the movie’s bigger scenes before announcing the streaming release date.

Are There Other Ways To Watch Black Adam?

Streaming Black Adam on HBO Max isn’t the only way to watch Dwayne Johnson’s incredibly pissed off Egyptian god awake a millennia-long slumber. In fact, there are multiple ways to see the movie in action.

You can buy (or rent) a digital copy of Black Adam on Amazon right now. A physical copy will be available in early January 2023, if you’d prefer holding off until the Blu-ray and 4K versions are released.

If You’ve Already Watched Black Adam

If you’ve already watched Black Adam, stick around, because CinemaBlend has a ton of articles written about the DC Comics adaptation that cover just about every aspect of the movie and the property’s future.

First off, there is Cinemablend’s official Black Adam review, in which Eric Eisenberg points out that Dwayne Johnson’s DCEU debut “definitely tries some interesting things, but it’s unable to make them work” while also noting the advantages and disadvantages of the film’s “limited scope.” 

There are also a couple stories that break down aspects of the movie like the Black Adam ending and that end-credit sequence that appears to set the stage for one epic showdown down the road. CinemaBlend has also spoken at length with the Black Adam cast and crew with conversations shedding additional light on the property’s pace in the DCEU. 

Black Adam will soon be streaming on HBO Max, but there are numerous upcoming superhero movies on the 2023 movie schedule, including multiple high-profile DC Comics projects like Shazam: Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
