HBO Max is a subscription-based streaming service owned by WarnerMedia that launched on May 27, 2020. The current DCEU films can be found on a rotation of availability on the service, but it's also developing its own DC Comics media exclusively for the platform. It will be the exclusive home for the film Zack Snyder's Justice League and the TV series Peacemaker.

Other upcoming DC projects include a series based on the Green Lantern Corps from Greg Berlanti (of Arrowverse fame), a series based on the Justice League Dark team and another based on Hellblazer headed by J.J. Abrams, and Aquaman: King of Atlantis with executive producer James Wan. None of these projects are currently confirmed to be part of the DCEU canon, but they all maintain that possibility.

On November 18th, 2020 it was confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 would be available on HBO Max alongside its theatrical release.[1]

On December 3rd, 2020, it was revealed that The Suicide Squad would follow Wonder Woman 1984's release strategy, along with Warner Brother's entire 2021 slate of movies.[2]

On December 27th, 2020, Walter Hamada claimed their goal, in addition to producing more expensive theatrical films, is to produce two HBO Max exclusive films based on DC Comics characters each year. These films would be cheaper to produce than their theatrical counterparts and would feature characters that aren't quite as likely to be successful. The examples given were Batgirl and Static Shock, though it's unclear if these were presented by Hamada or the article author. Hamada also went on to state that Warner Bros. would work with filmmakers to produce series spinoffs from every theatrical release, at least when it makes sense to do so. This has already been demonstrated to be the case with Peacemaker, a spin-off from The Suicide Squad, and GCPD, a spin-off/prequel from The Batman. How many of these new projects will be associated with the DC Extended Universe remains to be seen.[3]


Currently as it stands, HBO Max is only available in the United States. It is set to become available in Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Hungary, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay, and Venezuela in 2021.
