What is the release date of the movie Black Adam?
The shooting of Black Adam did not start until 2021. Victim of the Covid-19 pandemic, the shooting of the film was completely stopped and the recovery was very complicated, because the demand from special effects companies was colossal, thus creating a traffic jam at the level of Hollywood productions. Initially scheduled for July 17, 2022, Black Adam will finally be released in French cinemas on October 19, 2022.
As said before, Black Adam will be available in France from October 19, 2022 At the movie theater. For all streaming fans, it will take 17 months before the feature film lands on an SVOD platform, probably HBO Max, due to the media chronology set up in France. Simply put, the media timeline is a set of rules regulating the order and time frame in which a film production can be released after its release on the big screen across different mediums (DVD, Blu-ray, TV, VOD, SVOD ).
Who is Black Adam?
Created in 1945 by Otto Binder and CC Beck, Black Adam is a DC Comics character and an evil alternate to the superhero Shazam. Over time, the character evolves, going from being a villain to being an anti-hero. Teth-Adam is a human who received powers from six Egyptian Gods: Shou, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aten and Mehen in order to protect planet Earth. These were bestowed on him by the wizard Shazam. After Black Adam uses his powers for personal gain, the wizard decides to take them back from him and seals him in an amulet deep in the tomb of Ramses II.
Black Adam is the eleventh film in the DC Cinematic Universe (or DCEU for DC Extended Universe) and a spinoff of Shazam! The origin of the character takes place 5000 years in the past long before the advent of our modern civilization. The events that take place after the release of Black Adam should take place after the events of the first Shazam! released in 2019.
