Warner Bros. unveiled when Robert Pattinson’s The Batman will be available on various home media formats.
Robert Pattinson’s first foray as the Dark Knight hit theaters a little over a month ago and has earned over $700 million, but we’ve also known that the film will hit HBO Max very soon. On Monday, Warner Bros. shared The Batman will be available on HBO Max and Digital next Monday. HBO also revealed the film will air on April 23rd at 8 PM ET.
For physical copies of The Batman, the 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD will be available on May 24th. Several special features will also be included in the physical and digital editions of the film along with “Filmmaker Mode,” described as the following:
“Developed by studios, TV manufacturers and some of Hollywood’s leading directors, Filmmaker Mode disables all post processing (e.g. motion smoothing), preserves the correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates, and enables your TV to display the film precisely as it was intended by the filmmaker. Filmmaker Mode is available on televisions from select manufacturers.”
Both versions of The Batman‘s home release will also include deleted scenes with commentary from Matt Reeves, but only physical copies will feature the “Unpacking The Icons” featurette. You can find a list of the special features that will be included in both the Blu-ray and 4K versions below.

Here is the synopsis for The Batman:
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero and Bruce Wayne, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Barry Keoghan as The Joker.
