Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in Zach Snyder's 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

HBO is going Bat-happy in November with the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Along with the film’s pay cable debut, HBO is reviving the original Batman films of the 1980s and 1990s—Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns, plus Batman Forever and Batman & Robin—along with the animated features Batman: Under the Red Hood, Batman: Year One, and the two-part Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Other new films debuting this month include The Divergent Series: Allegiant, the third film in the young adult series, the action thriller Hitman: Agent 47, the comedies Eddie the Eagle and How to be Single, and the drama Race about Jesse Owens.

Original HBO programming includes the concert special All Def Comedy and the documentaries Underfire: The Untold Story of PFC. Tony Vaccaro and Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing.

Also coming in November: a timely revival of the Oscar-winning All the President’s Men, an early holiday gift of the 1947 Miracle on 34th Street, Martin Scorsese’s The Color of Money, and Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report.
