Watch the first 10 minutes online


The opening minutes of The Batman are available to watch online ahead of the film’s first streaming premiere in April on HBO Max and May’s home press release. In the full opening sequence uploaded by Warner Bros. Italy, serial killer Riddler (Paul Dano) murders his first victim on Halloween night as Batman (Robert Pattinson) hunts down the shadows of crime-ridden Gotham City. Journaling his second year as a vengeful vigilante, Batman recounts as Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) ignites the Bat-Signal: “When that light hits the sky, it’s not just a call. It’s a warning.” Watch the extended 10-minute preview above.

The Italian version of the opening sequence is released a week before The Batman lands on HBO Max on April 18 (airs April 23 on HBO). The Batman is available early for premium digital home ownership (price $29.99) and same-day 48-hour PVOD rental ($24.99) and is coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD with special features May 24.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced on Monday The Batman brings home all-new special features on the 4K UHD Combo Pack and Blu-ray, including features exploring Batman, the Batmobile, Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz) and the Penguin (Colin Farrell). The digital and disc versions include deleted scenes with commentary from director Matt Reeves, including the previously released deleted scene featuring the Joker (Barry Keoghan).

With Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell, The Batman airs on HBO Max from April 18 and available on 4K UHD and Blu-ray on May 24. If you haven’t signed up for HBO Max yet, you can try it out here.
