The Batman HBO Max release date
WarnerMedia recently announced that The Batman will make its streaming debut on HBO Max on Monday, April 18th. The movie’s arrival on the streamer will surely delight fans, especially those who have deliberately forgone seeing it in theaters due to its taxing three-hour runtime.
The Batman’s quick theater-to-streamer pipeline is part of the studio’s previously announced plan to keep its new films in theaters for 45 days before putting them on HBO Max.

Alongside the announcement of the movie’s HBO Max release date, WarnerMedia also revealed that The Batman will air on HBO for the first time on Saturday, April 23rd at 8 p.m. ET.
