The biggest winners here were HBOMax, Netflix, Hulu, and Tubi. Hulu had the largest share of viewership of the older Batman movies, with Batman Begins (2005) amongst the most popular titles. “The Batman” will be available to stream just 45 days after its theatrical release, on April 19 on HBOMax (click here to get notified when you can stream it.)
*Data is based on weekly streaming and engagement activity on Reelgood platforms for Batman movies. Data is indexed against the average of each title’s weekly streaming and engagement activity in Q4 2021. Weekly engagement is an aggregate of behavioral data on the Reelgood site and apps, including playback, tracking, and other interactions.
Our data showed that, compared to Q4 2021, engagement for Batman movies increased 63% in 2022 ahead of the theatrical release of “The Batman.” The spike on the week of Jan. 31 coincides with Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. announcing the sale date of “The Batman” tickets.
