HBO Max Sets Streaming Date For "The Batman"

"The Batman" has garnered a significant amount of buzz since its March premiere and for good reason. The film is the latest of several recent interpretations of the Batman comics and takes a fresh approach to the popular superhero character. Starring Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz, "The Batman" follows Bruce Wayne/Batman (Pattinson) as he works to reveal years of corruption in Gotham City, all while trying to stop The Riddler (Paul Dano) from continuing his killing spree in the city.

Released in theaters in the United States on March 4, "The Batman" broke a handful of records at the box office. Deadline reported the film brought in $134 million its opening weekend, and Forbes reported it earned $505.8 million worldwide less than a month after its debut. As popularity continues to grow for "The Batman," you may be wondering if the film is available to stream online. Here's what we know so far.
