Friday, September 18, DC Comics announced that the DC Universe streaming service, which has provided digital comics and video content over the past 24 months, will become a comics-only service as the video content makes its way over to HBO Max. The service will be rebranded as DC Universe Infinite, which launches on January 21, 2021, with access to over 24,000 comics right away. Like Marvel Unlimited, it will have newer comics available six months after their initial publication. Furthermore, DC Universe Infinite will be available internationally in summer 2021. This is a good move given that the lack of international availability has been a huge criticism of the app.
Last Saturday, September 12, saw the second part of DC Comics virtual convention DC FanDome, titled Explore the Multiverse. This had a heavy focus on DC television and also had a few panels about recent and upcoming animated films. Some of these panels were originally scheduled for DC FanDome on August 22, and it seemed that some panels would run concurrently with the panels about live-action films and video games. Thankfully, DC decided to push panels back to September 12 so that the experiences would be more manageable for the viewers. The video games and live-action films had their time to shine in the Hall of Heroes, and now fans could relax and what whatever panels they wanted in whatever order they preferred from 10 AM PST Saturday to about 12 PM PST Sunday. This particular article will have highlights from the animation-related panels that were present in the Watchverse section of the DC FanDome website.
Titans season three is set to debut a wealth of fan favorite characters, including Scarecrow, Red Hood, and Barbara Gordon. While Barbara Gordon has appeared as Oracle before on the short lived Birds of Prey series, she will be in a new capacity for this show, as she is going to serve as Gotham's newest police commissioner. Having already had a romantic relationship with Dick Grayson and some time on the police force, Gordon will likely be a seasoned veteran who has seen it all, so here are just a few options who could fit that mold.
The second part of DC Comics virtual convention DC FanDome was available online from Saturday, September 12 to Sunday, September 13. Titled Explore the Multiverse, it had a heavy focus on DC television and also had a few panels about recent and upcoming animated films. Some of these panels were originally scheduled for DC FanDome on August 22 but were pushed back, thus making things more manageable for fans. The panels for The Flash and Titans still dropped on August 22, though the extended versions of those panels were included this time around. (We know that Iris will escape the Mirrorverse in the former and that we will be seeing Jason Todd as Red Hood and Barbara Gordon as commissioner in the latter.) This particular article will focus on tidbits from live-action TV panels that were included in the Watchverse section of the DC FanDome website.
Saturday saw the second round of DC FanDome, titled Explore the Multiverse. It consisted of panels that were pre-recorded, and one of these panels was the Doom Patrol panel, which was originally slated for the August 22 DC FanDome date before much of the TV-focused panels were pushed back to September 12. Understandably, those on the panel were not able to talk about the news that did not get announced until right before DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse. Saturday morning, we learned via Deadline that Doom Patrol has been renewed for a third season at HBO Max.
So, you have watched the new Mortal Kombat character ending like Black Adam Teaser starring "The Rock" and that's why you are here aren't you? Well I think the choice they made to give Black Adam a own movie is super cool and what makes it even cooler is the fact that they are including The Justice society - Doctor Fate, Cyclone, Atom Smasher and Hawkman. Without wasting much time let's see who this Black Adam guy is and where he came from.
Birds of Prey is as fun and exciting as Suicide Squad was bad and forgettable. The character of Harley Quinn as embodied by Margot Robbe, escaped the disaster that was Suicide Squad and has come out the other side a bigger and more bankable star than ever. Not many actors can say that starring in a bad movie worked out for the best but Robbe taking the character of Harley from Suicide Squad to Birds of Prey does just that, it worked out for one of the best D.C movies.
The Boys was a superhero show that hit last year unlike any other. It offered a true perspective of how Superheroes would operate in today's world. With massive PR firms behind the Supes, they effectively get away with absolutely horrendous acts as the PR guru's behind them make twists in the stories of their super antics. With some if not all the heroes, this even comes down to their origin stories, to enable fans the chance to believe even more in these super-beings.
