It is indeed true that Black Adam was not released in China. Although there are multiple rumors abound about the film’s ban, one of them cites Pierce Brosnan as the reason. In a past interview, Pierce Brosnan mentioned meeting Dalai Lama. This didn’t sit quite well with China as the film received a ban across the entire country. Not only Black Adam but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever may also struggle to enter the throes of China streets as the film may also get banned.
It is reported that Wakanda Forever may also find itself banned in the country of China for depicting a queer relationship in the movie. Although the news hasn’t been confirmed yet, history may repeat itself. Despite not getting China’s box office, Wakanda Forever does not seem to struggle much in terms of box office collections unlike its DC rival Black Adam.
Black Adam and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are currently running in theaters worldwide.
