Look, we know Black Adam and The Flash both bombed at the box office but is Warner Bros. trying to now punish us for that?
For reasons we don't fully understand, the studio will release a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 2-pack this October featuring both movies. We weep for those who will find this waiting for them under the Christmas tree in December, with unwitting parents and partners buying their loved ones what looks like a fun time on the surface.
It's hard to fathom why these two movies would be bundled together, but the set is real and brings together two of the DCEU's biggest bombs in one place.
Black Adam took a bigger mauling from critics than The Flash, but was the bigger financial success when all was said and done (which isn't something anyone could have predicted a year ago).
The Scarlet Speedster's solo outing, meanwhile, was dubbed the "greatest" superhero movie ever by James Gunn, only to be rejected by audiences and largely forgotten in the months since. Neither character is now expected to be part of the new DCU, though Andy Muschietti has somehow found himself tasked with directing The Brave and the Bold.
"Come for The Rock’s pitch-perfect take on Black Adam and stay for an unmissable post-credits scene," we said in our Black Adam review. "Then, just try to forget everything else, because this brainless, brawny superhero movie is not the fresh start the DCEU desperately needs."
As for The Flash, we concluded our verdict by saying, "Far from the greatest superhero movie ever made and not quite among the worst, The Flash is still another mediocre effort from the DCEU with appalling VFX and a messy story that the excellent Michael Keaton and Sasha Calle alone are unable to save."
Here's a first look at perhaps the scariest thing heading our way this Halloween...
