DC Comics came into WonderCon Anaheim strong, throwing out many updates for DC Universe. The streaming app had some disappointments for fans as far as the peripheral features went. Fans were excited by the list of TV shows, animated movies, and films that were accessible, but felt the comics section was lacking. The original content line-up was worthy of a side-eye. Even the staunchest DC fan has reservations as to how strong the content on the streaming service would be. Months after release, the DC Universe proves just how strong it bring it, and announces updates that will worthy of a title like DC ‘Universe’.
Fans came into original content Titans and Doom Patrol with reservations. Could an independent streaming service pull off the quality in production and writing it would take to make these shows hits? It took a little convincing, but at the end of the day, DC Universe gave quality shows that fans loved. The new original content was announced at WonderCon Anaheim. The second season of Titans will feature new well-known Titans characters Jericho, Superboy, Deathstroke, and Ravager. We also got our first glimpse at Brec Bassinger as Stargirl. They also announced that Swamp Thing will begin streaming on May 31, 2019. Fan favorite Young Justice will return for its mid-season debut on July 2nd.
Not original content, but still pretty exciting. DC Universe will be adding Syfy’s Krypton to its list of shows on April 5th. Justice League vs The Fatal Five will be available on April 16th, joining DC’s other animated movies.
And the one thing that will make DC Universe subscribers even happier is that DC is expanding their digital comics library. DC Universe subscribers will have access to more than 20,000 comics, with more issues promised every week. Hopefully, this means no more partial runs or key-issues only.
While some fans may have been skeptical about DC Universe having yet another streaming app to juggle, DC Universe has proven to be well worth the money and the chance that was taken on trying it out.
