Leaked Details For Warner’s DC Universe Streaming Service Fuel Rumors Of August Launch


It’s going on eight weeks since Warner Bros. formally lifted the lid on its digital streaming service, DC Universe, and we now have more evidence to suggest the Powers That Be are preparing for an August launch.

Through time, it’ll become the home for multiple DC TV shows like Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing, which currently has James Wan on board to executive produce. That tells us Warner is angling its live-action series as more of a horror property than anything else, and at least based on new findings from Batman-News, the first domino of this newfangled DC Universe is about to fall very, very soon.

A woman by the name of Dani Snow swung by the “James Bonding” podcast earlier this month, and it was during the end of her interview where Snow chose to divulge some new details about the DC Universe, including its expected time of arrival.

I work at DC Comics — sorry, DC Entertainment — and we are about to launch I think late August, our DC digital platform which will be a hub for all things DC. There will be digital movies, TV shows that you can watch, streaming. We’re going to have a lot of comics on there.

Perhaps most intriguing of all, Snow went on to reveal that Warner Bros. plans to dig through the DC archives in order to add “older animated TV shows and movies” to its new digital venture so that, when the streaming service does go live later this year, it’ll contain a nice mix of old and new content.

None of this has been announced by WB just yet, mind you, so perhaps it’s best to file this DC Universe-related tidbit in the rumor cabinet…for now.
