Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel has returned to its rightful streaming service, HBO Max. It looks like OTT titles scheduled for HBO Max this April could attract potential new subscribers from the DC film community.
WarnerMedia’s VOD can finally call itself the streaming home of all DC titles as the first film from the DC Extended Universe is back on HBO Max. A new promo was released featuring all the DC films including the latest The Batman at the front and center of the video’s sales pitch. Readers can check it out below.

Snyder fans have long waited for Man of Steel’s return to HBO Max since the movie was removed from the service sometime in 2021, likely due to conflicts caused by prior licensing deals by Warner Bros. with other studios. In fact, the DC blockbuster still streams on Netflix in countries like India where HBO Max is yet to release. Man of Steel is available to stream as of Tuesday.
HBO Max has a separate section for the DCEU allowing subscribers to stream Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, 2016’s Suicide Squad, Justice League, Aquaman, Shazam!, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Suicide Squad. The R-rated Joker and Zack Snyder’s Justice League are also available to watch online on HBO Max. Though Some Snyder fans were disappointed to see the Snyder cut of Justice League missing in HBO Max’s DC promo.
Meanwhile, the DC promo’s closed caption confirms that batman will land on OTT after its theatre run. It was initially confirmed the DC film will be available to stream after its 45-day theatre window. If the same strategy still applies, it will arrive on April 19, 2022. The movie currently stands at $700 million at the global box office so it remains to be seen if its OTT release could be delayed for a longer run in cinema halls.
