DC Universe, the long-awaited streaming service that will feature any and all things DC is finally looking to take its final steps before going live. After all the talk and set photos and hype surrounding the exclusive content and original programming, fans finally have a timeline as to when they will be able to sign up and binge-watching on the DC Universe.
According to Dani Snow, DC Entertainment’s community manager, the all-DC streaming service is eyeing a late August launch-date. She recently sat down with the team over at the James Bonding Podcast to discuss what can be expected this summer.
“We are about to launch [I think in late August], our DC digital platform. Which will be a hub for all things DC.”
AS of this writing, DC has about 5 shows in development that will be exclusvie streamed on the DC Universe. This includes ‘Titans’, ‘Doom Patrol’, ‘Swamp Thing’ for the live-action shows and ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ and ‘Harley Quinn’ will be two animated series’ making their way to small screens everywhere.
Along with the original programming, Snow mentions that the service will also include access to the 75-plus year history of DC Comics. So fans will be able to compare and contrast the shows to their original source material.
“We are going to have comics on there. There is gonna be a lot of good stuff there. Right now er are working on getting everything from back-catalog, like animated TV shows and movies on there now,” Snow said. “We will also be producing, I think we have 5 in production including ‘Swap Thing’. Which a lot of people are really excited about since it’s a horror title. I don’t know if it’s being cast yet.”
