Black Adam's box office performance is being compared to Aquaman's, which suggests that the DC Universe may soon have another $1 billion film.

Even though the initial DCEU films frequently made more money at the box office than the early MCU films, the box office results have always been closely watched.

Two of DC's biggest successes were Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and there was a notion that Black Adam might likewise succeed with a star like Dwayne Johnson at the forefront.

The picture has performed well at the box office thus far, raising greater concerns about the potential heights to which the DC movie could ascend.

The question of whether Black Adam would gross $1 billion at the box office is growing more intriguing after the first two weekends during which the movie did well.

A lot of people think Black Adam will reach this milestone at the box office because it debuted on par with Aquaman, the only DCU picture to gross $1 billion (since Joker is separate).

Since Shazam in 2019, Dwayne Johnson's DC film is the first to gross over $100 million domestically. At the time of writing, it has also crossed $250 million globally, putting it one-fourth of the way to reaching $1 billion in just over a week.

Realistically, Black Adam's odds of earning $1 billion are not very good. When comparing the domestic box office for Black Adam and Aquaman, Jason Momoa's solo film did it in half the time it took Dwayne Johnson's DC debut to reach that milestone.

This is partly attributable to Aquaman's holiday release, which encouraged families to visit theatres to take in the spectacle-filled adventure.

Even though Black Adam faces little opposition at the box office, it is trailing. Even though Black Adam hasn't yet debuted in China, where Aquaman's standalone movie generated nearly $300M, it did receive a significant boost internationally.
