The Batman Will Be Available To Stream In The UK Next Week

We’ve got good news for anyone who hasn’t got round to watching The Batman in cinemas since its release last month, as very soon you’ll be able to enjoy it from the comfort of your own home. 


Matt Reeves’ DC masterpiece sees Robert Pattinson take on the titular superhero opposite Paul Dano’s Riddler, Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, Colin Farrell’s Penguin and John Turturro’s Carmine Falcone. 

The flick has been a huge hit with fans and critics alike, having racked up a not-too-shabby 85 percent rating for itself on Rotten Tomatoes. 

But with such epic on-screen action comes a suitably epic run-time - just shy of three hours if we’re counting - which isn’t ideal for anyone without a bladder made of steel.

However, anyone who’s felt apprehensive about strapping in for the ride can now rest assured knowing that, from next week, they’ll be able to watch it at home – where there’s a pause button, a toilet and an endless supply of snacks.

And, of course, if you’ve already seen the flick, it’ll just give you an excuse to watch it all over again, though this time complete with all of the above advantages. 

The movie will be released on Premium Video on Demand from 19 April in the UK, although if you’re over in the States, you’ll be able to watch it from the day before via HBO Max. 

This means you'll be able to throw yourself onto your sofa to see what you think of Pattinson's take on the Caped Crusader - and he's already proven many of his doubters wrong.

Many people weren't entirely convinced by the idea at first, but Reeves revealed that he wrote the main part specifically for R-Patz, having become hopeful he would accept the offer after seeing the British actor's other work.

"From the beginning, I was imagining the character in my head," he told Movie Maker.

"I watched movies of actors in the age range and he really captivated me. I started writing for him. I had no idea if he'd ever want to be in the movie.

"He's such a wonderful actor. And I knew that he would be able to go on that search with me for the depth and complexity of this character."

Watch The Batman on Premium Video on Demand from 19 April in the UK, or on HBO Max from 18 April in the US.
