The advent of HBO Max was somewhat controversial, as it was definitely a time of great confusion for DC Universe and HBO subscribers. However, these days, it’s now the hub for all things DC. It’s pretty convenient for those of us too scared to venture out to a theater. (You know, since all the 2021 movies will hit HBO Max at the same time). While I was too busy trying to decide whether or not to get the streamer, I didn’t realize for the rest of the world, it wasn’t even an option. At the moment, HBO Max is exclusive to the US. That’s going to change, however, as Warner Bros. have announced that the service will be launching in Latin America in June 2021.
Take a look at the promo:
Of course, the clip makes sure to unfurl HBO Max’s massive catalog of shows and movies. As you can see, the DC releases and series’ receive quite a bit of screen time in the promo, and yes, in case you wanted to know, Zack Snyder’s Justice League should be available in LatAm, too. Though it doesn’t specifically name-check Zack Snyder in its title card, it does have the Max Original tag at the very top. (The theatrical JL is not a Max Original. I think my detective skills are on par with Batman for this deduction). Though it’s hard to say if it will be available at launch, the Max Original tag provides pretty good evidence that it will be available at some point.
“Are we ready?”
According to the Verge, HBO Max will launch in 39 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean, including:
Latin America and the Caribbean, including Anguilla, Antigua, Argentina, Aruba, B.V.I., Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Uruguay, and Venezuela
The Verge also goes on to say that it will expand to Europe (Nordic countries, Spain, Central Europe, and Portugal) “later this year.” Hopefully, it’s a lot sooner than you think.
