DC’s new digital streaming service FINALLY has a name! DC UNIVERSE! Yeah I thought the same thing when I heard it. It was announced last year that Warner Brothers and DC were getting together for an exclusive all DC channel. It would include DC shows and specials and include the Warner Brothers and DC library. On their website they described DC Universe as “a first-of-its kind, immersive digital experience designed just for DC fans” which includes unlimited access to its original series.
WB will be releasing more information soon about the DC Universe digital experience. Fans can sign up for updates at dccomics.com/dcuniverse. DC Universe is designed as more than a traditional OTT service, rather as an immersive experience with fan interaction that encompasses comics as well as TV series.
The first slate of shows that were announced were Young Justice season 3, a live action Titans series, Harley Quinn, and Swamp Thing which just was announced will include Aquaman director James Wan. Already announced METROPOLIS is already in production and will most likely be the first show to air on the service.
Young Justice: Outsiders is been said to be premiering later this year with 26 episodes. The series is described as:
In Young Justice: Outsiders the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, Young Justice reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.
