This is not just a signal, this is a warning: if you are waiting Batman to go on the air, only a week remained before the premiere.
Matt Reeves’ reimagining of DC Comics’ The Dark Knight is still in theaters – in fact, it made another $6.5 million just last weekend – but it will debut Monday on HBO Max April 18. (If you’re still subscribed to cable channel HBO, it will premiere there on Saturday, April 23 at 8:00 pm ET.) Warner Bros. blockbusters. will now debut on HBO Max 45 days after their theatrical release. Batman debuted in theaters March 4th and 45 days after that…April 18th. So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise.
This latest Batman stars Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, just a year or two into his career as a Caped Crusader who battles a dark new version of the Riddler played by Paul Dano. The rest of the cast includes Zoë Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell as Penguin.
Batman will be released on HBO Max as the company actively develops spin-off TV shows set in its version of Gotham City. For example, «Parrell’s Penguin» should be a spin-off series dedicated to his character. Previously, HBO also worked on a series about members of the Gotham City Police Department. However, the latest we’ve heard is that the show has switched showrunners – from Terence Winter to Joe Burton – and is now instead a show set in Gotham’s infamous Arkham Asylum for supervillains.
None of these shows have a premiere date yet, but you can at least start drinking. Batman to your heart’s content, starting next week.
