With its theatrical release imminent, here’s everything we know about The Batman, from the plot and cast to how to watch the komidi and if it’s going to stream on HBO Max.
Batman release date
The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. It was originally intended to be a summer movie (as most Batman movies have traditionally been), but it was pushed back several times from its June 25, 2021 release date after production was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tickets in advance for The Batman went live on February 10th, so you can reserve your seats before opening night.
Will The Batman stream on HBO Max?
DC pemuja can expect The Batman to be released simultaneously in theaters and the HBO Max streaming service, as all of Warner Bros’ major theatrical releases of 2021 have followed this approach. Unfortunately, the studio isn’t continuing this experiment in 2022, especially as Warners faces a lawsuit over how it handled the release of Matrix Resurrections.
In other words, The Batman won’t be coming to HBO Max on March 4th. But the good news is that the komidi will go into service soon. The Batman will debut on HBO Max on April 19, 2022, 46 days after its theatrical debut. This is part of WarnerInstrumen’s new strategy of giving tentpole films a palingkecil of 45 days in cinemas before they are released on HBO Max.
The Batman title
With this reboot, production dates, directors, writers and menyala cast have all changed over the past few years, the only thing that has remained constant is the title. This new Batman komidi will simply be called The Batman.
It may not be a coincidence that the komidi shares a title with the 2004 animated series. Both projects focus on a younger Bruce Wayne early in his crime-fighting career. “The Batman” is how the people of Gotham refer to their protector early on, when he’s an unknown and suspicious presence in a crime- and corruption-ridden city. Reeves teased that Gotham’s residents are actually afraid of Batman as he hasn’t yet become the symbol of hope his city truly needs.
The trailer for the new Batman movie
Fans didn’t have to wait long after production began to get their first glimpse of The Batman. Reeves posted a short costume test video, which features Pattinson in a dramatically redesigned Batsuit. This costume appears to be inspired by both the comics and the Arkham video games.
The first full-length trailer of The Batman was released during the DC FanDome in August 2020. You can watch him below:

The Batman cast and crew
When Warner Bros.’ next solo Batman komidi was first discussed in July 2015, the assumption was that Ben Affleck would direct and star, with Affleck and Geoff Johns co-writing the screenplay. Since then, however, the project has changed a as Affleck quit (first as a director and then entirely) and the script has undergone significant changes. That appeared to mark the end of Affleck’s tenure as Batman, though he has since appeared in the Justice League’s Snyder Cut and will play Batman one pasti time in the upcoming Flash komidi.
Matt Reeves (War of the Planet of the Apes) has now been tapped to direct The Batman. Reeves is also writing the komidi and serving as producer along with fellow Apes writer Dylan Clark. Michael Giacchino (Rogue One, Lost) is voicing the komidi and said he has “complete freedom” in his approach to the franchise.
Robert Pattinson (Cosmopolis and, yes, the Twilight movies) plays Bruce Wayne/Batman. The decision to cast Pattinson was apparently an easy one, and a Warners insider described it as “quicker than .” Pattinson’s menyala source of competition was Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), with both actors taking part in a costume test in May 2019, just before Pattinson officially signed.
