In some sad news, DC Universe is getting a rebirth of it’s own. With all of it’s live-action series being moved to HBO Max, the subscription service will now become a comic book only service. To quote a bit about this shake up via The Hollywood Reporter.
“Two years after it launched as a home for scripted originals and library content, DC Universe is officially exiting the scripted landscape and transitioning to a comics-centric platform. But there is good news that comes with the change: All of the platform’s scripted originals and library titles will move to fellow WarnerMedia-backed streamer HBO Max. That includes animated breakout Harley Quinn, which has now been renewed for a third season.”
Here are some more details we’ve learned about DC Universe Infinite and what it will offer once it launches January 21, 2021. This image coming from DC Comics press release about the situation.
Basically it’s going to be exactly like Marvel Unlimited for those that have it. Cheaper to my knowledge but that’s about it. You will get current comic issues six months after their release date along with access to DC Fan events when they happen. Along with comics that you can download for offline viewing. Finally, there will be exclusive digital first comics such as Aquaman: Deep Dives, Batman: Gotham Nights, DCeased: Hope at World’s End, Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red, Injustice: Year Zero, Shazam!: Lightning Strikes, Superman: Man of Tomorrow, Swamp Thing: New Roots and Wonder Woman 84. Overall, nothing we haven’t seen before and I’m sad that the live-action series for DC didn’t work out but props for them for trying. Anyway, that’s all the news I have for now and I’ll catch you on the next one.
