Despite receiving many positive reviews, the work Black Adam is still expected to make Warner Bros suffer a large loss.
With a budget of approximately $195 million, according to Variety, the film must have earned at least $600 million to break even. However, Warner Bros. I think 400 is enough. From many statistics, Black Adam will make Warner Bros suffer a loss of about 50-100 million USD.

And Black Adam’s loss is not too much of a loss because the work is said to be the DCEU’s reagent when bringing an anti-hero into the main character as well as making the film in a brighter style /
