DC Comics has been stating for a while now that they were going to be releasing a streaming service all their own. One that would house certain programming that wouldn’t be on stations like Fox, CW, or Syfy. Well, today they revealed that the streaming service itself would be called DC Universe. Which is actually quite apropos, as that’s a name that’s been associated for DC Comics for quite some time.
Shows that are already guaranteed to come to the DC Universe is the live-action Titans TV show, the return of the animated series Young Justice, a live-action series named Metropolis (staring Lex Luthor and Lois Lane), and animated Harley Quinn series (voiced by live-action counterpart Margot Robbie), and now, we can add a live-action Swamp Thing series that’ll be co-produced by Aquaman director James Wan.
At present though, there still isn’t a price for the subscription service, nor is there any indication as to what else might be on the service. After all, even though there are now five series confirmed for the service, that won’t last long content wise, and it’s doubt they’ll all release at the same time, If it wants to be a true service, it’ll need to offer more, even if it’s just access to movies and past series like Netflix does. We’ll have to see as the service is set to release this year.
