By Monday morning, the domestic box office will grow to approximately $238.5 million. The Batman received mostly positive reviews from fans and critics.’s Kofi Outlaw gave the film a rating of 4 out of 5:

“As a reboot The Batman is a very good reintroduction to the Batman film series, but one that feels like a victim of circumstance. It seems they originally had a much deeper thematic point in mind – until the whole world went into a chaotic downward spiral. We’re getting most of it now The Batman is a final message from, “Hey, things are really messed up, but, uh, let’s try to help each other, okay?” Given the current circumstances around the world (at the time of writing this article), that’s perhaps the only message a superhero film can convey right now.”

The BatmanThe success of could impact the future of DC Comics movies. “The secret of the film business is quality. It’s the best business strategy for both motion pictures and superhero films,” said Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures meeting on the heels of The Batman‘s impressive opening weekend. “The films don’t all have to have the same tone or tie into other DC films or have an Easter egg that pitches another film. Quality is the most important factor for a studio and the biggest thing you can do with quality is the filmmaker you hire.”

Warner Bros. is already working on turning The Batman into a mini-franchise. A previously announced series focused on the Gotham City police force has been scrapped in favor of a show focused on Arkham Asylum. HBO Max has already ordered a series starring Colin Farrell as The Penguin.

“We’re thrilled to bring audiences a new version of this iconic DC character that they’ve never seen before. It’s incredible to be working with Matt, Dylan and Lauren on this continuation of this story and to see Colin absorb his already exceptional accomplishment The Batman to the next level,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max.
