Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s The Batman arrived on disc May 24 with exclusive editions from each of the big three retail chains.
The reboot of the comic book franchise from director Matt Reeves stars Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader, as he investigates The Riddler (Paul Dano), who is murdering Gotham City government officials. It earned $369 million at the domestic box office.
Best Buy, per usual, offered the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack of The Batman with Steelbook packaging for $34.99.
Target offered the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of The Batman with an exclusive slipcover offering unique cover art, plus an additional 15-minute featurette, “Gotham Planning,” about the design of the city in the film, for $26.99 (a $2 premium over the regular Blu-ray combo pack). Target’s version replaces the bonus disc in the combo pack with its expanded bonus disc.
Walmart offered a beefy gift set of The Batman Blu-ray and 4K editions: The disc case came housed in a bigger box containing special artwork and a tin sign of Batman’s chest logo, with a stand. It was $34.96 for the Blu-ray version and $39.96 for the 4K version, but the gift set seems to have sold out pretty quickly as it no longer appears in searches for The Batman on disc at Walmart.com.
