The biggest news to come out yesterday made Rek smile from ear to ear.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics are teaming up to bring fans a new digital TV service in 2018. This news was teased last year by Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. The service will launch with at least two shows that we know of: a live-action series called Titans from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schechter, as well as the revival of the animated Young Justice series. The new show will be called Young Justice: Outsiders.
Dick Grayson will lead the Titans team as Nightwing, and the other members will consist of heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe, including Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy. No word on Cyborg, Kid Flash, and/or Wonder Girl.
“Titans” follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. “Titans” is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
In “Young Justice: Outsiders,” the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, “Young Justice” reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.
We have no word on when the service will be launched or the pricing, but we’re going to assume it will be along the same lines as Netflix and Hulu.
