DC Comics has revealed that it’s digital service, a joint venture between Warner Bros and DC Entertainment, will now be called DC Universe.
The platform was announced last year to be in the works and set to launch at sometime in 2018, designed as more than traditional OTT service, rather as an immersive experience with fan interaction that encompasses comics as well as TV series.
In the announcement, DC Universe revealed the logos of its exclusive original TV series coming to the digital service:
The Titans live-action series hails from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV, and has been in production for some time now, aiming to premiere on the launch date for the digital service.
Another animated series in the works is a half-hour adult action-comedy series focusing on Harley Quinn from Powerless executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey via Warner Bros. Animation.
Finally there’s new drama series Metropolis, from Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon and Warner Bros. TV. The drama is set to focus on Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. While it was given a 13-episode straight-to-series order and set to premiere in 2019, the show is now being redeveloped.
