Superhero fans all over Australia have expressed their delight as Batman Oreos hit supermarket shelves.

You can purchase them at Woolworths and Coles supermarkets right now.

Mondelez, which owns the Oreo brand, released the limited edition cookie for the new movie The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, scheduled to hit Australian cinemas on March 3.

Oreo has paid homage to the new DC instalment in their packaging - an Oreo cookie is shown inside the Bat Signal above Gotham city.

The limited edition 133g packs feature traditional Oreo chocolate-flavoured sandwich cookies with vanilla cream.

Rather than the traditional Oreo logo and distinctive geometric pattern, the cookies are embossed with a silhouette of the caped superhero.
