The Batman release date

The Batman is a 2022 American superhero crime noir movie written by Matt Reeves and Peter Craig and directed by Matt Reeves. The movie is just weeks from premiering in NYC on March 1, 2022. Since this is a DC movie, it will also be available on HBO Max, approximately 45 days after its release.

What to Expect from The Batman movie

The plot for The Batman is loosely based on the comic book arc, Batman: Year One and revolves around a young Batman trying to decrypt clues to track down a serial killer. As he gets closer to cracking the case and uncovers the perpetrator’s plans, he realizes he must form uneasy alliances to serve justice and bring the much-needed peace to his city.

The movie was originally a project starring Ben Affleck as Batman who would also be the director of the movie. Plans for the movie began after October 2014 when a standalone movie starring Affleck was announced. The movie was supposed to explore Robin’s hinted death in detail, introduce Batgirl and explore the Batman Vs. Superman story further.

However, with Ben Affleck’s departure, Matt Reeves was hired to direct the movie and after Affleck was excused to play Batman for the movie, he was replaced by Robert Pattinson and this movie is now a totally different product than what it was supposed to be.

Matt Reeves onboarded the project in February 2017 while Pattinson was cast as a Batman in May 2019. Principal photography began for the movie in January 2020.

A Teaser trailer was uploaded on Warner Bros. Pictures YouTube channel on August 23, 2020, while the first trailer for the movie came out on October 17, 2021, on the same channel.

The movie is now set to premiere in New York City on 1st March 2022 and on April 18, 2022, The Batman will be available on HBO Max for all USA viewers.
