There have been many HBO Max subscribers who have been extremely disappointed after recent news. It has been announced that a list of D.C. movies will actually be leaving the service on July 1. However, on Thursday, HBO Max responded to customer concerns and extended the availability of the D.C. titles in question.
HBO Max took into consideration the emotional attachment these fans had to many of these movies. In a time like this where many people are at home more than they usually would be, it’s very fair to consider the needs of the viewers.
These DC titles will be available through December 2020.
- Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, 2016
- Justice League, 2017
- Suicide Squad, 2016
- Superman: The Movie, 1978
- Superman II, 1980
- Superman III, 1983
- Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, 1987
- Superman: Unbound, 2013*
- Watchmen (Movie), 2009*
- Wonder Woman, 2017
*these titles will be available beginning July 1
That still leaves a few D.C. titles from the initial announcement, which will again be leaving the service on July 1, including Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Catwoman, Jonah Hex, and The Losers.
Surely D.C. fans will still be disappointed that some titles are still missing, but this is sadly a move that viewers will have to adjust to. However, being able to enjoy D.C. movies for a little while longer is something all D.C. fans will appreciate.
