It had been previously announced that starting in 2022, Warner Bros. films would be theater exclusive for 45 days before heading to the streaming. This is a change from the last year or so where all WB films premiered simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max.
So essentially, THE BATMAN has 6 weeks to make hay at the box office. And with how highly anticipated this film is, I’m sure hay will indeed be made. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
