The Batman has had its streaming release date confirmed on HBO Max – and it’s just days away.
Warner Bros. is no longer doing day-and-date 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 on the same day), but The Batman is available for home viewing far sooner than usual cinematic releases. Here’s when The Batman is on HBO Max.
When is The Batman releasing on HBO Max?
The Batman’s HBO Max release date is April 18.
Of course, this is only applicable to those who have access to HBO Max in their region. Those in the UK, for example, will likely have to wait a little bit longer to buy or rent it digitally or on Blu-Ray – potentially into June or July if something like Spider-Man: No Way Home is any indication. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit NOW TV in the next six months or so in the UK. But new HBO Max regions, such as the Netherlands, should have The Batman waiting for them.
Watching The Batman on a streaming service away from HBO Max might take even longer than that, sadly. We’ll update this page as soon as we know more.
HBO Max is also set to be the home for 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 into being Arkham-centric, having previously been mooted as a GCPD spin-off.
