In just a month’s time, Matt Reeves’ successful debut of The Batman was met with nothing but praise from the fans. To those fans who are eagerly waiting for the 4K blu-ray launch, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment finally announced The Batman‘s release date on home media. The Batman 4K blu-ray release is expected to have additional content like behind-the-scenes, deleted scenes from the movie, and even the director’s cut.
The film was a big hit when it premiered in theaters on March 4, 2022, in the US (and on March 2, 2022, in selected territories). Critics and fans alike appreciated The Batman’s new noir direction and theme, and a more grounded take on the Dark Knight. The Batman made over $700 million at the global box office, making it one of DC’s most successful superhero-based films in recent times, and a sequel has already been teased during a special scene in the movie involving Barry Keoghan’s character, The Joker. A spin-off on HBO Max has also been announced based on Gotham City’s most renowned psychiatric ward, Arkham Asylum.
When is The Batman 4K Blu-ray and DVD Release Date?
The Batman blu-ray release date is on May 24, 2022, alongside a DVD release. The film will also be available for stream on HBO Max this April 18, 2022.
In previous reports, the British-based website, Zavvi, may have leaked The Batman blu-ray 2022 release date details, stating that it would be on June 13, 2022. The release date may have probably been a placeholder knowing that most blu-ray and DVD releases are set 3 months after a film’s theatrical release. At the time of this writing, Zavvi still has The Batman blu-ray and DVD release date on June 13, 2022.
