DC Universe is a VOD ( video on demand ) platform that also includes comics and special programs, with the aim of competing with Hulu and Netflix , but attracting fans of comics, especially DC, with varied content, both new as classic. Initially, this new service will be launched in the United States, to expand to other countries during 2019.
The films of the DC Cinematic Universe will be released on the DC Universe platform, while all the seasons of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and the new remastered version of the great Batman: The Animated Series are confirmed. At the same time, the rights to Smallville , the classic Batman series and all those belonging to the CW’s Arrowverse are being negotiated .
The most powerful bet, however, are the exclusive series and movies that are scheduled to premiere during the first year. The success of the initiative depends on your welcome, so we hope that the quality is in line with expectations… which are many!
Titans is the first series to be released and promises to be a hit, with a more adult and somber tone and a Robin moving away from the shadow of Batman… although it will cost more than you think.
In addition to Robin, the cast of characters includes Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire; Hawk & Dove will appear as secondary and, depending on their acceptance, they could also receive their own series in the future.
