DC Universe Teaser

The superhero subscription streamer DC Universe, which will launch this fall, has released a trailer for its series, Titans.

The 13-episode first season of Titans takes place in a pre-Batman-and-Robin world consisting of Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Rachel Roth/Raven (Teagan Croft), Starfire (Anna Diop) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter). In fact, in the trailer below, upstart Robin derides the mention of the Caped Crusader’s name with a four-letter expletive:

DC Universe has also announced the addition of three more classic TV series – Batman Beyond (1999-2001), Justice League the Animated Series (2001-04) and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2008-11).

The DC Universe Library

The DC Universe Library will also include four Superman films starring Christopher Reeve; Wonder Woman in both her TV (Lynda Carter) and animated movie versions;  the first two seasons of Batman: The Animated Series; and the animated movies Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and Green Lantern: First Flight.

In 2019, two live-action series will debut: Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing, previously a 1982 movie starring Adrienne Barbeau and then an early ‘90s TV series. Two original animated shows are also scheduled for 2019, including Harley Quinn, a comedy about the Joker’s ex-girlfriend; and Young Justice: Outsiders, in which the show’s young superheroes will focus on an intergalactic arms race.

DC Universe will also offer a fan community, as well as a curated selection of comic books and exclusive merchandise.
