While "The Batman" is all set to hit the theaters in March, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar has opened up about the movie's release date on HBO Max.

Kilar disclosed "The Batman" will release exclusively in theaters for 45 days before it hits the streaming platform on April 19, 2022.

"Think about when movies would show up on HBO, which is eight to nine months after theatrical premiere. The Batman is going to show up on day 46 on HBO Max," Kilar told Recode during a podcast. "That is a huge change from where things were in 2018, 2017, 2016."

Kilar also revealed that "Black Adam" and "The Flash" will also drop on HBO Max six weeks after their theatrical releases. "Black Adam" is slated to release in theaters on July 29 next year, while "The Flash" is scheduled for a November 2022 release.

The WarnerMedia CEO also noted that "Jason Kilar," a biographical musical drama based on legendary singer Elvis Presley, is slated to drop on HBO Max 46 days after its theatrical release.

"That is a very, very big change that I don't think people appreciate, and I feel really good about it," he added.

"The Batman" is scheduled to release on March 4, 2022 in theaters. The movie is a reboot version of the Batman franchise and is helmed by director Matt Reeves. The action-adventure stars Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Jayme Lawson and Barry Keoghan.

WarnerMedia is not the only streaming platform that has implemented such a strategy. Disney announced in September that its movies will release in theaters for 45 days before hitting the streaming service.

However, some of the movies are going to be in the theaters only for a longer period of time.

"Shang-Chi" is currently streaming on Disney+ 70 days after its theatrical release. "Eternals" will start streaming on the platform after 68 days on Jan. 12, 2022. Ryan Reynolds' highly anticipated "Free Guy," which was released in August, will be available on the platform from Feb. 23.

In case you have missed it, here's the full list of content coming to Disney+ next year.
