DC Universe, the streaming platform promising to encompass as much DC Entertainment content as allowed by the Monitors will launch on September 15th.
As discussed during the special live-stream of DC Daily hosted by Kevin Smith, the roster of launch content will include the first two seasons of Young Justice, a bevy of DC television and feature films, DC Daily itself and comic books ranging from Superman’s first appearance to The Authority.
But the service’s first original scripted drama, Titans, will arrive one month later on October 12th. The series, which features Blue Lagoon: The Awakening’s Brenton Thwaites as a grown-up Robin, will see Dick Grayson go at it on his own as a cop by day and masked crime fighter by night. His day job brings him into contact with Raven (Teagan Croft), whose problem will require a whole team of superheroes. Anna Diop and Ryan Potter co-star.
Other features of the service include a community hub, an ever expanding DC Encyclopedia and a home for shows like The Adventures of Superman, Legion of Superheroes and other DC content not found elsewhere in the streaming multiverse. The community section also features ways for subscribers to earn premium points for exclusive DC Universe merchandise and ways to enter contests, like the The Ultimate Batman Studio Tour Sweepstakes. Pre-order a DC Universe subscription before September 12th and you will be entered for a chance to visit Warner Bros. in Los Angeles, where you will take a tour of the studio, visit DC Entertainment, ride in a Batmobile and receive a prize package filled with goodies like original art.
DC Universe will run members $7.99 a month or $74.99 annually. Pre-ordering now will also get subscribers an extra three months of the service.
