The quirky Batman?  Warner Bros.  monitors the situation "day to day"

In any case, the superhero film will not be released in theaters and on HBO Max at the same time.

The output of The Batman is approaching (see you on March 2 at the cinema), but the Covid-19 epidemic is also growing in the world. So much so that fans of the superhero, who will be played by Robert Pattinson in this new version directed by Matt Reeves, are worried. The Warner Bros. will she be forced to postpone it because of the health crisis? Jason Kilar, who is the head of the company, wants to be reassuring to Puck News. “We are very careful with everything that is going on around the Omicron variant, he assures. We feel this date well for now, but we are monitoring the situation day by day. “

Omicron variant delays Morbius exit by three months

At the beginning of March is indeed a good time to release this superhero film, since The Batman will be the only such blockbuster to be released between January and April. Spider-Man : No Way Home still a hit in theaters since mid-December and Morbius, which was scheduled for the end of January, was postponed to April 1 by Sony. If this date is maintained, it potentially increases the chances of this new Batman doing well in theaters. Especially since unlike all Warner films in 2021, it will not be available for streaming on HBO Max on the day of its release. The studio is changing its strategy this year by offering its big films exclusively to the cinema for 45 days, then by programming them on their platform. Regarding The Batman, that means it will be in US theaters on March 4, then streamable from April 19 (in France, the media timeline is very different and HBO Max is not yet available to viewers).

“I am very happy to know that The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, Elvis and all of our other films will be available for viewing on HBO Max on the 46th day after their theatrical release in multiple countries around the world, Kilar recognized in another interview, at Vox’s Record. It’s a big change. I don’t think everyone appreciates it, but I do. Think back to the fact that before, you had to wait eight or nine months after its theatrical release for a movie to arrive on HBO. The Batman will be available from day 46 on HBO Max. It’s a huge change from how 2018, 2017, 2016, etc.
