Fans of DC are about to have one heck of a 2018. Besides being the hub for original shows like Titans, Doom Patrol, and a third season of Young Justice, the new DC streaming service, aptly titled DC Universe, will host classic films and TV shows, allow fans to shop exclusive merchandise, connect with other DC fans — and also, digital access to DC comic books.
That’s right. Through DC’s streaming service, there will finally be a sensible “Netflix for comic books” that will also be, well, a Netflix for DC shows. While DC Universe will only have DC titles (no word on Vertigo yet), the whole thing will be a true multimedia experience accessible through one subscription. It’s a bold, genius idea, even if you’re a big fan of Marvel.
On Wednesday, DC unveiled plans for DC Universe, launching fall 2018 after a beta run in August. The monthly subscription service will be an “all-in-one” deal that will give members access to new shows and old favorites, connect fans through a vague social networking element, buy exclusive merchandise, and most exciting, read a “curated” list of digital comics.
There is currently no monhtly price point for DC Universe yet.
Because you’re dying to know what will be available read/watch once DC Universe goes live, click the slideshow to see “sample” lists of the films, TV, and comics that will be on DC Universe starting on day one. Keep in mind it’s not a complete list, and there’s presumably more to be announced.
DC Universe will launch fall 2018.
