The DC Extended Universe brings another comic book character to life with “Black Adam,” a new superhero action flick from Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. You can rent or buy the film now from services like Amazon, and it should be coming to HBO Max in the coming months.

“Black Adam” follows the story of Teth-Adam (Dwayne Johnson), a mortal turned god. After using his powers for revenge, Teth is imprisoned on Earth and transforms into Black Adam. When he is freed almost 5,000 years later, Black Adam is ready to distribute his version of justice across the world.

Dwayne Johnson stars as Black Adam. He is joined by Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill”), Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”), Sarah Shahi (“The L Word”), Marwan Kenzari (“The Mummy”), Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers”), Mo Amer (“Ramy”), Pierce Brosnan (“GoldenEye”) and Bodhi Sabongui “(A Million Little Things”).

“Black Adam” is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”). It is written by Adam Sztykiel (“Due Date”), and Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani. Dwayne Johnson is one of the film’s producers alongside Beau Flynn, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia.

If you buy “Black Adam”, you can stream it whenever you want without any restrictions. If you rent the movie, you’ll have 30 days to start watching it, then 48 hours to finish it after pressing play.

When will ‘Black Adam’ be available on HBO Max?

“Black Adam” has yet to receive an official streaming release date, but it is expected to arrive on HBO Max later this year. Warner Bros. has the ability to add new movies to HBO Max as soon as 45 days after they premiere in theaters, so subscribers can start streaming the movie as early as December 5.

That said, the 45-day policy is used on a case-by-case basis, so the studio might decide to keep the movie in theaters longer. For example, another recent Warner Bros. movie, “Elvis,” took 70 days to arrive on HBO Max after it premiered in theaters. If “Black Adam” follows a similar release strategy, it won’t arrive on HBO Max until December 30.

HBO Max costs $10 per month with ads or $15 per month without ads. Discounted annual plans are also available for $70 (no ads) or $105 (with ads). Paying for a year up front saves you 40% compared to paying for 12 individual months.
