The Batman, directed and co-written by Matt Reeves, will be available to stream exclusively on HBO Max on Monday, April 18, followed by a linear debut on HBO on Saturday, April 23.
The release date for The Batman on streaming was expected as it falls on the 45th day after the film first hit theaters. While Warner Bros. released their new releases daily on HBO Max in 2021, for 2022 the studio has a deal that their new films will have an exclusive theatrical window for 45 days before they hit their streaming service.
The Robert Pattinson-starring film received positive reviews from fans and critics alike after grossing $134 million on March 4. The film’s worldwide box office has so far approached $735 million.
