In a tweet from Black Adam himself Dwayne Johnson, he announced that his DCEU film will now hit cinemas on October 21 this year.
It was originally set to open on July 29.
Black Adam Delayed By WB Until October 2022
Johnson also announced that his DC animated film, DC League of Super-Pets will take Black Adam’s original July 29 release date.
Johnson is providing the voice of Superman’s canine companion Krypto the Superdog.
This news comes on the back of a further raft of reshuffled release dates from WB.
As we also reported, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and The Flash have been delayed to 2023.
These delays have come about due to production delays with the visual effects, as a result of the COVID pandemic.
Despite a series of delays, there is some good news as Shazam: Fury of the Gods is being brought forward by several months.
Previously set for a June 2 2023 release, the sequel will now open on December 12 2022.
This sets up a very interesting box office battle, as Avatar 2 is also poised to be released on December 16.
