DC Entertainment has revealed the details for its upcoming streaming service DC Universe. Not to be confused with the canon universe of DC Comics or the video game DC Universe Online, DC Universe will launch with the live-action series Titans later this year, followed by Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing. The animated programs Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn series are set to release in 2019.
DC Universe will also include "a curated selection of thousands of comic books," including titles related to the service's streaming shows which will rotate.
"We wanted the DC Universe comic reader to be a blend of art and technology that would further enhance fans' experiences of the live-action and animated programming on DC Universe," said DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio. "This hand-curated selection from our decades of comic creations gives fans a thematic digital longbox to carry with them on the device of their choosing or lets them watch exclusive video content on a big screen followed by the comic that inspired it."
Alongside the tv shows and comics, the service will include a number of DC movies including all four Christopher Reeve Superman films, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Green Lantern: First Flight, and the animated Wonder Woman. It will also include Batman: The Animated Series and 1977's Wonder Woman TV show.
DC Universe will also serve as a social network allowing users to purchase DC Comics merchandise, enter contests, and interact with other users.
No specific release date or cost has been announced.ASA
