Heads up, DC fans as Black Adam is coming home just in time for the new year. While the movie recently made its debut on Digital, for those who wish to simply rent it or own a digital copy, Warner Bros. has now revealed when the physical release is coming our way. Mark your calendars for January 3, 2023.
The movie will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on January 3 following its theatrical release. The movie stars Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson as the title anti-hero and has been in the works for more than 15 years. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the film finally made its way to theaters back in October. Admittedly, critical opinion was a bit mixed and it is going to make a little less than $400 million in total at the box office. But Johnson seems prepared to play the role for a long time. Whether or not it gets a sequel remains to be seen. For now, we’ve got the Blu-ray to look forward to. And it will be loaded down with special features.

“In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.”
