The latest DC entry from director Jaume Collet-Serra, black adam, does not seem to be on an ideal trajectory. The film starring Dwayne Johnson as the titular superhero was far from satisfactory to most fans and critics, and now the film is set to be released digitally on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. This comes just one month after the release of the film, causing an uproar among fans.
Capturing how DC fans are feeling about the movie, one Twitter user commented:
The film follows Teth Adam, a human who has been granted the powers of the gods. The film’s synopsis reads:
“In the ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was granted the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for revenge, he was imprisoned and became Black Adam. Nearly 5000 years have passed and Black Adam has passed from man to myth and legend. Now free, his unique form of justice, born of rage, is challenged by modern-day heroes who make up the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.”
The film was originally released on October 20, 2022. The rapid digital release has led fans to question how quickly the film has been relegated to being a digital copy. Social networking sites like Twitter are flooded with tweets following this statement, leading to intense discussion about the movie..
black adam becomes the topic of discussion after rapid digital release
black adam hit digital stores on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, just 31 days after the film’s release. It’s no secret that Dwayne Johnson’s movie didn’t impress a lot of people, especially after the hype that built around it.
However, not everyone was negative about the decision, with many stating that it was the right path for the film. Many did not even feel any sense of surprise that black adam decided to go this way.
Some fans raised some valid points about the movie’s marketing, since it failed to hold its own in theaters. One fan rightly commented that any average Dwayne Johnson movie usually makes more money than a DC movie starring the actor. This is absolutely correct, as the former wrestler has delivered several times in recent years, and his films have been commercially, if not critically, successful.
Meanwhile, other fans were more concerned about the movie’s release on streaming platforms.
