In an interview with Vox’s Recode, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar announced that “Batman” would be added to the HBO Max catalog 45 days after its theatrical debut.
The adaptation directed by Matt Reeves will be released on the big screen on March 4, 2022 and will be released on the streaming platform on April 19.
“In the past, movies would hit theaters and didn’t arrive on HBO until eight or nine months later. “Batman” will be released on HBO Max 45 days after its debut. This is a big change and we are not even talking about long duration because we still had to wait a long time. [para ver uma grande produção em casa] if we remember 2018, 2017, 2016… ”
Movies like “The Flash” and “Black Adam” are also expected to follow this pattern.
For Kilar, this is a great way to attract followers to the platform.
“I really feel great knowing that ‘Batman,’ Black Adam ‘,’ The Flash ‘, the’ Elvis’ biopic and a whole host of other movies will literally be hitting HBO Max less than two months after the premiere. “It’s a really, really big change and I think people aren’t used to it, but I feel really good about it.”

Check out the full synopsis:
“Two years of patrolling the streets like Batman (Robert Pattinson), instilling fear in the hearts of criminals, took Bruce Wayne to the shadow of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the city’s corrupt network of officers and key figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance among his dear citizens. “
When an assassin attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest sleuth on an investigation into the criminal world, where he meets characters like Selina Kyle / Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to get personal and the scale of the author’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and do justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham.
In addition to Pattinson in the lead role, the cast includes Andy Serkis (Alfred), Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Peter Skarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Gil Perez-Abraham and brothers Max and Charlie Carver.
