The Batman was a smash hit on the big screen, but when will you be able to see it from the comfort of your own home? Maybe you missed seeing it in the movies, or maybe you just want to catch Robert Pattinson in the Batmobile for the second (or third) time. Like all Warner Bros. releases, the Caped Crusader’s latest adventure will eventually be available to stream on HBO Max.
The studio no longer does daily releases for their movies (like how The Suicide Squad, The Matrix Resurrections, and other major 2021 releases were all available to stream and watch in theaters the same day), but The Batman is still on the way for home viewing. Here’s when The Batman is on HBO Max.
When is The Batman coming out on HBO Max?
“The Batman is going to appear on day 46 on HBO Max,” WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar told the Recode podcast in December. That means we can expect The Batman to arrive 46 days after March 4, its first full day in theaters.
Kilar’s announcement revealed that Batman’s HBO Max release date is April 19 which has since been confirmed by HBO after an issue on the streaming service made the date semi-official.
Of course, this only applies to those who have access to HBO Max in their area. Those in the UK, for example, will probably have to wait a bit longer to buy or rent it digitally or on Blu-Ray – potentially June or July if something like Spider-Man: No Way Home is any indication. But newer HBO Max regions, like the Netherlands, should have The Batman waiting for them next month.
Watching The Batman on a streaming service outside of HBO Max could take even longer than that, unfortunately. We will update this page as soon as we know more.
HBO Max is also set to host two upcoming Batman spin-offs. One revolves around Colin Farrell’s Penguin and is described as a “Scarface” story. The other spin-off is a series that has evolved to become Arkham-centric, having previously been hinted at as a GCPD spin-off.
