The world of online streaming has been thrown into a state of flux in the past several months. With the announcement of WarnerMedia’s new streaming service, HBO Max, another from NBCUniversal, and the rapidly-approaching launch of Disney+, many streaming services and programs are being shuffled and shuttered--though, it emerged this week, DC’s DC Universe will reportedly continue.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Universe, along with other Warner-owned streaming services HBO Now, HBO Go, and CW Seed, will remain functional for the foreseeable future, even through the launch of WarnerMedia’s HBO Max. This means that series such as Doom Patrol, Titans, and Young Justice: Outsiders will remain where they are.
Importantly, however, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the fate of DC Universe is not fully clear. With HBO Max’s lineup including new programs from the CW, the often-binged Friends, and shows from Warner Bros., New Line, CNN, TNT, TBS, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, and Adult Swim, it’s logical that WarnerMedia would want to integrate its DC properties into its streaming service.
HBO Max will also feature new content including Kaley Cuoco’s The Flight Attendant, the upcoming prequel to Game of Thrones, and Anna Kendrick’s Love Life.
If you ask us, the fate of DC Universe still seems very much up in the air--and we’ll be keeping our eye on it.
