Dwayne Johnson’s highly anticipated superhero debut as Black Adam is nearly here. It’s the realization of casting rumours that date as far back as 2007, and according to Johnson, the beginning of “a new era in the DC universe.” However, our Black Adam review doesn’t quite agree with that sentiment.
Black Adam will be released on October 21. If you’re wondering how and where you can watch it yourself, take a look at the information below.

Black Adam Streaming
Black Adam is not currently available to stream online and there’s been no official announcement regarding its streaming status. However, considering it’s a Warner Bros. movie, Black Adam should eventually come to HBO Max.
Warner no longer guarantees movies will hit HBO Max after 45 days, so we don’t know its exact streaming release date. However, for reference, Warner’s two latest releases came to HBO Max 70 days (Elvis) and 59 days (DC League of Super-Pets) after their theatrical debuts. Should Black Adam hit within that 60-70-day window, it’d come to HBO Max in mid-to-late December.
What’s Black Adam About?
