WarnerMedia CEO reveals movie release date on HBO Max


With “The Batman” set to hit theaters in March, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar has spoken about the movie’s release date on HBO Max.

Kilar has revealed that “The Batman” will be released in theaters exclusively for 45 days before being released on the streaming platform on April 19, 2022.

“Think about when the movies would appear on HBO, eight to nine months after the theatrical premiere. The Batman is going to appear on day 46 on HBO Max,” Kilar told Recode on a podcast. “This is a huge change from the situation in 2018, 2017, 2016.”

Kilar also revealed that “Black Adam” and “The Flash” will also be hitting HBO Max six weeks after their theatrical releases. “Black Adam” is slated to hit theaters on July 29 next year, while “The Flash” is slated for release in November 2022.

The CEO of WarnerMedia also noted that “Jason Kilar,” a biographical musical drama based on legendary singer Elvis Presley, is slated for release on HBO Max 46 days after its theatrical release.

“It’s a very, very big change that I don’t think people like, and I feel really good about it,” he added.

“The Batman” is set to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. The film is a reboot version of the Batman franchise and is directed by director Matt Reeves. The action-adventure stars Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Jayme Lawson and Barry Keoghan.

WarnerMedia is not the only streaming platform to have such a strategy in place. Disney announced in September that its films would hit theaters for 45 days before being released for streaming.

However, some movies will only be in theaters for a longer period of time.

“Shang-Chi” is currently airing on Disney + 70 days after its theatrical release. “Eternals” will begin airing on the platform after 68 days on January 12, 2022. Ryan Reynolds’ highly anticipated “Free Guy”, released in August, will be available on the platform starting February 23.

In case you missed it, here’s the full list of content coming to Disney + next year.
