HBO Max has become a hub for DC fans. Even though the DC Universe streaming service is no more, all of that content, and much more, has moved over to WarnerMedia’s main streaming service. In February, lots of DC movies and TV shows will be arriving on the service for subscribers to enjoy.
As has been the case since HBO Max launched, certain titles are rotating in and out of rotation. This month will see several key Batman movies return to the service, in addition to some beloved animated Batman shows. A couple of key DCEU movies are also part of February’s DC lineup. Here is every DC movie and TV show coming to HBO Max in February.
