‘The Batman’ to stream on HBO GO starting April 18

The Batman, the latest movie starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, will be dropping on HBO GO for Philippine subscribers next Monday.

Warner Bros. announced that the blockbuster will launch on the streaming service HBO GO on Monday, April 18, and will air on HBO on Saturday, April 23 at 8 PM ET.

Matt Reeves’ The Batman premiered in local theaters just last March 2, and is currently still showing in some cinemas in the country for the sixth straight week. 

Warner Bros. theatrical releases are slated to hit the streaming service 45 days after their debut in cinemas. The neo-noir superhero film has already reportedly grossed $735 million worldwide in the global box office.

With The Batman’s theatrical success, there’s a good chance of a sequel in the future, though there’s been no word on that just yet.

However, the film has at least two spin-offs in development. HBO Max has given a straight-to-series order for The Penguin, which will see Colin Farrell reprise his villainous role as Oswald Cobblepot from the film as one of Gotham’s legendary kingpins.

Another series about the various inmates of Arkham Asylum is reportedly in the works, which comes after director Matt Reeves shared a deleted scene from the film with an iconic villain.

Reeves wrote and directed The Batman and produced with Dylan Clark.

From the film's official logline: When a killer targets Gotham City’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle, The Penguin, Carmine Falcone and The Riddler. As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, The Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Starring alongside Pattinson are Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson with Andy Serkis and Farrell.

Stream The Batman on HBO GO starting April 18, 2022.
