The box office numbers show that many fans have already flocked to theaters to see Dwayne Johnson’s new DC superhero film, Black Adam, which released a month ago. Now (per Screen Rant), Warner Bros. has released the thrilling film for viewers to watch at home via streaming. The surprisingly quick jump from theater to couch now allows fans to watch (or re-watch) Black Adam on multiple digital platforms. Streaming outlets Amazon Prime and Google Play offer the film to own for $24.99 or to enjoy as a 48-hour rental for $19.99. For those who prefer to add a box to their non-digital library, Warner Bros. also announced a release date for Blu-ray and DVD purchases of January 3, 2023.
This rapid turn from cinema to digital streaming is in complete contrast to the time it took Black Adam to get from its initial stages of development to this final product. In fact, Johnson continued with CBS Mornings and explained how the film was nearly 10 years in the making. At the time, Johnson said the studio asked him, “Hey, we know you love ‘Black Adam,’ but are there any other superheroes in the DC world that you’d like to become?” Johnson revealed, “I said no, thanks but no. It has to be Black Adam.” Well, now fans have a finished product and also a new way to enjoy it from the comfort of their own home.
