Warner Bros. Forced to Censor 1 R-Rated Black Adam Scene

Warner Bros.' (WB) Black Adam became arguably the most violent movie in the DCU, so much so that it almost received an R-rating from the MPAA.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson promised for years that his DC debut as Black Adam would be one of the most violent superhero movies ever with his antihero being one of the most powerful characters ever put on screen.

With Black Adam's promise of being so violent, many were wondering what rating it would receive upon its theatrical release, especially with WB having already released R-rated movies in recent years like James Gunn's The Suicide Squad. Reports even indicated that the movie did actually get an R-rating in Summer 2022, with the filmmakers doing everything in their power to get the movie as close to that rating as possible without fully crossing the threshold.
