    Default DC Universe official streaming service details

    https://www.dccomics.com/dcuniverse

    So DC finally announcing something about this but really US only? I mean I live in the US but this is just screaming pirating. Anyway just waiting for prices and trailers now...

    I guess that confirms Metropolis is either still in really early development or just not happening since it doesn't have a logo...

    "DC Universe" is a good enough title, but I really want to know what else membership to the service entails other then access to the original shows.

    Eh, I'm Canadian but they took my email anyways. I think it's just because, as a US-based company, they can't exactly speak for how things go for the entire world all the time, i.e. service could launch on October 9th at 10 am PST, but it could take a few hours longer to get running in Mexico and so they can't give specific updates for Mexico. At least, I hope they're smart enough to realize that this needs to be a global service if they want it to succeed.

    Anyways, cool logos. Just need a date and the price.... Also, we should get comics and stuff with this, right? Maybe not right away, and maybe not much aside from, say, the regular DC Nation releases and stuff like the first big new Titans issue (#23) or the issue where Bruce proposes to Selina, etc.

    They have got to have more content then just this original show, though with a title like "DC Universe" I would think that would entail access to comic stuff, cartoons, movies, etc.

    Any chance they'll absorb some of those CW Seed shows? Just to bring them under one roof...

    Interesting, did Geoff just confirm a Swamp Thing project for the service?

    Edit: Variety's confirmed it. A planned 2019 launch.

    So they've been working on a subscription service for a year.....maybe two and they only have three shows? I don't know about this one. We'll see.

    Yeah it is weird to imagine launching a streaming service with only three new original presentations to launch with.

    I doubt they're going to release this with only 3 shows ( I hope not). I think they announced it way too early which makes sense given the three known shows were barely even worked on. I know for YJ when it was announced they basically had nothing.

    It's funny that there are ppl on here who say that DC can't have a Titans and a YJ series running at the same time,but the streaming service does that very thing.

    This will survive if they put EVERYTHING in it,everything not locked into a contract somewhere else into it that is.they need to have merchandise and comics for sale somehow also,throw everything at the customer,don't hold back

    And if it's just going to be filled with old programming that's even worst. Why pay for things I've seen millions of times before as a kid? I'm from the Timmverse generation. I own it all on dvd.

    So the story of the Swamp Thing show will be told through Abby's perspective? That's brilliant. Like with other "monster" tales, ST/Alec doesn't need to be the POV character.

    I'm really not a big fan of fragmentation but that does seem to be the current trend.

    Looks like Warner is simply bypassing the hassle of pitching series to networks and providing pilots, when they can just greenlight their own stuff and put it there.
    And, it means that we'll see more fringe stuff that probably wouldn't make it past a pilot as the networks start moving away from superheroes.

    At least it's more appealing than subscribing to CBS All-Access just for Star Trek: Discovery. o.O

    But since we're already subscribing to Britbox, Netflix and Hulu, we really have no room for another service currently.
    However, if they carry all the past DC shows, like Adventures of Superman, Batman '66, Wonder Woman, Superfriends and the DCAU titles, it would be very tempting.
    Currently reading: All-Star Comics ('70s), All-Star Comics ('40s), JLA ('70s), JLA ('60s), Green Lantern ('60s), Superman ('30s), Invisible Hood ('40s), Doll Man ('40s).

    So yeah as others have pointed out Swamp Thing has been announced.

    Okay DC where is the Wonder Woman cartoon? It's your best DC movie and Diana ain't getting anything? This your chance to make her side of the universe more known! Don't rely on just the movies!
