DC Universe Streaming Service Thread
« on: June 28, 2018, 01:42:29 PM »
I feel we've talked about some of these things in other threads but we are getting closer to the DC Comics/DC Universe streaming service with more details coming out.



A lot of the classic shows and movies plus new original content.  There's been talk of a new Swamp Thing series and a Harley Quinn animated show.  There's been talk of a mature rated Doom Patrol show and this fall they are launching the live action Titans series.  More detailed pictures of Robin leaked which look pretty good.



The official website launched and for those interested, you can sign up for BETA testing.

I'm intrigued and have already entered my e-mail for the Beta thing. The HQ show alone (with Ivy included in the cast) would've sold me but there's also the Young Justice: Outsiders animated show that I'm pretty hyped on.

This launches on Friday.

$7.99 a month or get the year for $74.99.  They are doing a pre-order promo before 9/12 that if you pre-order, you get three months free.  15 months for $75, I figure I waste $5 a month on coffee so I signed up.

Titans is scheduled to premiere next month on 10/12.  There has been more casting information for Doom Patrol, which has been indicated to be spun-off from Titans and there has been more hype on the Swamp Thing series coming in 2019 pushing the line of what in theaters would earn a "hard R-rating" being heavily influenced by the Alan Moore run.

Got the e-mail that this is live.  Don't see it showing up on my AppleTV yet but about to browse via web browser.

So a quick browse, there isn't a ton of stuff available yet.  Which I think seeing this was supposed to launch tomorrow - maybe that's why.  I am excited that Gotham by Gaslight is already there and the 2018 Death of Superman is too, which I heard good things.  But the movie section right now is only 20 - the four Christopher Reeve Superman and a handful of their straight to video animated fare - but some significant ones missing.

The other one that tripped me up was they had The Spirit in their Specials section and labeled it 2008 and PG-13 like it was that bad movie - but it is actually something from the 80s starring Sam Jones that appears to have been made for TV.

Time to check out the comic section.

Discovered the "Comic Book Reader" works better (though still a little slow/glitchy) in Chrome compared to Firefox as a heads up. Read the BTAS #12 Issue with Harley/Ivy teaming up against Batgirl, good stuff. I've always had a soft spot for the BTAS run of comic issues so I'm glad to see them in here.

Also noticed this: "Can't find the books you're looking for?

The full DC Comics digital library will be available for purchase in October."

And I squee'd at seeing the Gotham Girls issues complete with all 5 issues :D

You can also create your own lists for Favorite Comics, etc. and share them :)

Watched Harley & Ivy from BTAS. Immediately noticed how much sharper the image was as well as the brightness of colors, notably Harley's red in her costume.

Jesus, why did they get Kaley Cuoco to voice her?
You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

Interesting casting announcement made for the Swamp Thing show. 

Ian Ziering was cast as Daniel Cassidy aka Blue Devil

Teaser artwork was revealed as well, prompting other questions

Do i write about doom patrol in here or start a thread? If it gets any replies I'll split it off.

Watched the first 9 episodes of Doom Patrol and it's fantastic. The women who play Jane and Rita are especially great but most of the cast really nails their roles. I also love how they tackle certain subjects (like the Dany Street episode) without it feeling exploitative or fake.

I heard really good stuff on Doom Patrol, including that from people who did not like Titans.  Need to sit down and watch both, though I still have highest hopes for Swamp Thing.  Once I catch up,  will have to join you in chatting.
