If you are a fan of Batman or even Robert Pattinson, you are likely eager to know when the Matt Reeves directed movie will be hitting Netflix. The Batman is the latest addition to the DC universe. The movie boasts a truly powerful cast of Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, John Turturro, Andy Serkis, Peter Skarsgaard, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrell. The movie was released in the theaters worldwide on March 4 and fans have been flocking to theaters to catch Robert’s version of the Caped Crusader. However, if you are one of the few who wants to enjoy a DC movie at home, you may have to wait a while.
When will The Batman arrive on Netflix?
Unfortunately, the WB title may never make its way to the streaming platform because Warner Brothers have its own digital streaming platform, HBO Max. Recently, WB has made all the efforts to bring all the DC-related shows and movies on HBO Max. So we don’t see WB releasing their big 2022 theatrical release on Netflix anytime soon. It is likely going to find a home on HBO Max after a 45 day run at the theaters according to the new clause. So you can expect the movie to drop on HBO Max on April 19th, 2022.
Having said that, Netflix does carry numerous WB titles including two batman movies and a few animations. Netflix recently added Annabelle: Creation to its catalog. So if our calculations are right, The Batman will be on the platform in 2027. All the WB titles that Netflix carries have arrived on the platform five years after their release in theaters.
However, viewers outside of the US might find the title on their Netflix Home page well before 2027 since international distribution plans differ.
Where to watch the DC movie?
HBO max, if you can for 45 days. If not, your best bet would be the cinemas. You can buy the movie on VOD service or even wait for a Netflix DVD. In case you cannot get a ticket to the theaters you can scratch that bat itch by catching Nolan’s works-Batman Begins, The Dark Knight-on Netflix. Alternatively, you can stream Batman: The Killing Joke and Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered.
