The Batman how to watch

Can you stream The Batman? Criminals and wrongdoers beware, Batman is heading to cinemas. Yes, after more than a few delays, Robert Pattinson’s take on the Caped Crusader has finally swooped into action.

Directed by Matt Reeves, who brought us the wonderful Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy, this new take on Batman takes him out of the established DCEU and drops him in his own universe. Set two years into Bruce Wayne’s (Pattinson) crusade against the criminals of Gotham, The Batman sees the world’s greatest detective tackle his most challenging case yet when Paul Dano’s Riddler (surely one of the best Batman villains) starts killing the city’s great and good.

Will Batman be able to unmask this deadly new serial killer? Or will this riddling wrongdoer succeed in his scheme to “unmask the truth” about Gotham and the elites who rule over it? Well, to find out, you’re going to have to sit down and watch the action movie, but where can you watch The Batman and is it available to stream?

Where can you watch The Batman?

The Batman hit cinemas here in the UK and US on March 4. The superhero detective movie is still playing in some theatres at the time of writing, but may well disappear before too long, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to catch it on the big screen.

Like a lot of films that were initially slated for a 2021 release, The Batman has had its fair share of delays. Pattinson’s Batman was originally supposed to bring justice to cinemas on June 25, 2021, but Covid-19 restrictions saw it pushed back to October 1, 2021, and then again to March 2022.

Can you stream The Batman?

If you have a subscription to HBO Max, you can now stream the Batman as part of your deal with the streaming service. The release strategy is part of Warner Bros plan to release their movies on the platform HBO Max in the US just 45 days after it hits theatres, on April 18, 2022.

That means you’ll be able to enjoy the Dark Knight and Riddler’s deadly chess game from the comfort of your front room from mid-April.
