When does The Batman come out and tickets go on sale

The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), was originally scheduled to hit theaters last June, but faced setbacks and shooting delays due the coronavirus pandemic and Pattinson testing positive for the virus that year.

Finally, The Batman exclusively hits theaters in the US and the UK on March 4, and in Australia on March 3.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the film is expected to offer more realism and less fantasy than previous Dark Knight movies.

In his second year of fighting crime, Batman uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family while facing a serial killer known as the Riddler. Robert Pattinson delivers a raw, intense portrayal of Batman as a disillusioned, desperate vigilante awakened by the realization that the anger consuming him makes him no better than the ruthless serial killer he's hunting.

The Batman's runtime is 2 hours and 27 minutes. That makes it the third longest superhero movie ever, behind Avengers: Endgame and Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Tickets go on sale starting Feb. 10. That gives you a month to nab your spot.

Where to Watch and Stream The Batman?

The Batman coming in 2022 from Marvel, Netflix, DC and more.

As one of the first comic book movies to be released in 2022, The Batman looks to be a heavy hitter. The new film stars Robert Pattinson as the titular Caped Crusader in the iconic DC hero's first live-action solo outing since The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. It's no stretch to call this one of the most anticipated comic book movies in recent memory, but will it be streaming anywhere to coincide with its theatrical release?

The Batman will be available for streaming on HBO Max, but not until 45 days after its theatrical release date.

What happened to Warner Bros.' controversial "day-and-date" release plan? Last year, theater companies struck a deal with Warner Bros. to show the studio's 2022 slate on the big screen for a 45-day window.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many studios opted to release their films in both theaters and at home through streaming services. It was an innovative and convenient technique that allowed moviegoers to keep up with their anticipated releases while still social distancing.

For Warner Bros.' part, they announced that all of their 2021 theatrical releases would also stream on HBO Max on the same day, allowing films like Dune and The Suicide Squad to reach audiences.

But where does that leave 2022 films like The Batman? After all, the DCEU-canon film Batgirl will be streaming exclusively on HBO Max this year. It might make sense for the standalone Batman film to do the same.

The good news? It will be streaming. The bad news? It won't be a simultaneous release with its theatrical screenings. Earlier this month, Comicbook.com reported that The Batman will stream on HBO Max 45 days after its initial theatrical release.

For those keeping track, that means The Batman will stream on HBO Max on April 19.
