It kicked off what is - in my humble opinion - one of the best film trilogies of all time, so there’s a special place in my heart for Batman Begins. Starring Christian Bale as the best damn Batman of all time (don’t @ me), Christopher Nolan’s 2005 superhero blockbuster is simply iconic, and even more so for laying the groundwork for one of the best movies ever made, The Dark Knight.

Anyway, enough fangirling - for the uninitiated, Batman Begins is the first film that really delves deep into the caped crusader’s origin story. After witnessing the murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne becomes obsessed with revenge, determined to fight injustice across Gotham City, adopting the vigilante identity of Batman by night while posing as a shallow businessman and playboy by day.

How to watch Batman Begins in Australia

Option 1: Binge

It’s one of the newer arrivals to Australia’s streaming scene, but Binge is already proving to be a popular alternative to Foxtel, with much of the same content for the far more palatable price of $10 per month. Unlike Netflix, it has all three of Nolan’s Batman movies (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises), rather than just the first and third. You can also try the service out with a two-week free trial.

Option 2: Netflix

If you’re one of Netflix’s 11.9 million Aussie subscribers, you’re in luck, because Batman Begins is right there waiting for you. It’s also got the trilogy’s final flick, The Dark Knight Rises, but if you want to catch the second (and, in my opinion, best), The Dark Knight, you’ll need a binge subscription (or free trial).

Option 3: Foxtel Now

Already a Foxtel Now subscriber? Go forth and stream Batman Begins. That said, if you’re not already a member, we’d suggest the far cheaper option of Binge over Foxtel Now. Not only does it have Batman Begins, but it’s also home to most of Foxtel’s other flagship titles like Game of Thrones and Succession). The best bit? You can do a two-week free trial if you’d prefer to try before you buy.

Option 4: Rent or buy

Not a streaming service subscriber? Well, if you’ve got an iOS or Android device, Mac, PC, Chromecast, Apple TV or compatible gaming console, you can rent (or buy) a digital copy of Batman Begins for under $5. As this article goes online, the movie is available on Apple TV, Amazon, Google Play, Microsoft, YouTube, Fetch and Quickflix (which apparently still exists).
