In the case of The Batman, it has been 46 days since it was released in the US-Canada theaters on March 4.
Last year, Warner Bros. implemented a controversial day-date plan for its theatrical films on HBO Max; This is a means of increasing the customer base for its FROSH OTT service, as well as preventing the event title from going off during an epidemic. Batman returns to the Warner Bros. theater window, and it’s a success.

They were ahead of the second weekend’s Hold Disney Marvel movie, which averaged -63% in their second weekend, and against Batman. Previous DC movies like Superman (-69%) and Dark were ahead of the second weekend decline. Knight Rises (-61%), Justice League (-56%) and The Dark Knight (-53%).

Deadline reported last week that HBO Max had given the spin-off series The Penguin a straight-to-series order, which would see Colin Farrell recapture his villainous role from one of Gotham’s legendary kingpins.
Batman director Matt Reeves told Deadline’s Hero Nation podcast that the penguin comes from where the movie was released in terms of villains. He said the original Batman spinoff series he had centered around a corrupt cop caught up in earlier events of the film is no longer moving on to HBO Max. Penguin is produced by Reeves, Dylan Clark, Farrell and Lauren Lefrank, who writes and works as shorner.
Upon arrival, HBO Max did not comment on The Batman HBO dates or errors on the website.
