The DC Universe streaming service launched on Friday and the content is starting to roll in.
Saturday marks the annual celebration of Batman Day in honour of the Dark Knight’s first appearance in Detective Comics #27. “DC Daily” rounded up a number of notable faces in the world of television and comic books, including “Arrow” and “Doctor Who” star John Barrowman, for a special treat.
DC and Warner Bros. rolled out a brand new look at the upcoming “Titans” live action-action TV series, which centres on a group of young superhero’s led by Batman’s sidekick Robin.
What’s more, the new trailer features two famous names from the Batman comics: Dick Grayson, the original Robin, out of costume and Jason Todd, the second Robin, dressed in his famous garbs.
“Nice to meet you, bro,” Todd tells Grayson. “I’m the new Robin.”
Warner Bros. Digital Networks President Craig Hunegs talked about the new streaming service in a statement published by Deadline. “This weekend, as we celebrate one of our most iconic heroes, we launch a digital service that unites Super Heroes from every corner of the DC universe, from our most treasured films and comics to exclusive originals all-in-one place,” he explained.
“DC Universe stands out as a fan-first service in what is quickly becoming a crowded marketplace of consumer choices,” Hunegs continued. “The fan response has exceeded our wildest expectations and we’re excited to share this truly unique experience with everyone.”
“Titans” premieres on DC Universe Friday, Oct. 12.
