DC Comics is launching it own streaming service with DC Universe.
Warner Bros is throwing their hat into the streaming wars and will feature a streaming service focusing on their powerful stable of DC Comics Superheroes. Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are but a few in the always expanding DC Universe.
The details are still light, but DC describes DC Universe as a first-of-its-kind, immersive digital experience designed just for DC fans. One of the many incredible things your membership will include is unlimited access to the following exclusive original series: Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders (animated), and Harley Quinn(animated). Not to mention the untold amount of content Warner Bros will be adding to the service from their vaults.
The Titans will be the streaming service’s first live-action series along with a rumored series dealing with Metropolis pre-Superman. Another series in early development is Swamp Thing. The supernatural, environmental character will be brought to life by director James Wan. Wan, who is known for his horror films such as Insidious and The Conjuring is the perfect fit for the Swamp Thing.
Young Justice: Outsiders is the third season of the animated series Young Justice. The series focuses on younger superheroes. Young Justice was initially canceled by Cartoon Network in 2013 after airing for two seasons. Following high viewership ratings on Netflix, the series was officially renewed for a third season.
The clown princess of crime, Harley Quinn, is an upcoming action, comedy, adult-oriented animated. The first season will consist of 26 half-hour episodes. Harley Quinn is written and executive produced by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey. The show will reportedly feature Poison Ivy and a whole cast of heroes and villains.
Finally, Titans is a live-action series based on the DC Comics team of the same name. Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti created the series, which sees Brenton Thwaites star as Dick Grayson / Robin, the leader of the Titans, alongside Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, and Ryan Potter as Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy, respectively.
No other details like pricing and availability have been announced. DC Universe is set to launch later this year.
