The Warner Bros. Pictures global blockbuster The Batman, from writer and director Matt Reeves, is finally coming to HBO Max for enthusiasts of the Caped Crusader to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

Buoyed by glowing reviews and no doubt repeat viewings, The Batman has managed to defy the lowered pandemic expectations and gross $735 million worldwide, with $359 million of that gross being domestic. HBO Max is naturally hoping that some of that box office buzz will translate to home viewing enjoyment, bolstering its streaming number fresh off the success of highly-acclaimed series like Succession and Euphoria.


The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City vigilante detective and his alter ego the reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne, will be available for fans to stream on HBO Max on Monday, April 18th.

Apparently, this movie was supposed to released earlier than HBO Max planned. But, they had to stay by the rules and wait the 45 days. We can’t wait to see what they will do for the spin-off series with Colin Farrell as The Penguin.

The Batman was produced by Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) along with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Simon Emanuel, who served as executive producers.
