Now that the DC Universe has a streaming service, DC wants everyone to know that it’s only getting started. The platform released a 2019 trailer for fans today, previewing the new content that will be releasing next year.
The service’s big series, “Titans,” just wrapped its first season before the year ended, but that’s just a small sampling of the original shows that the platform plans to release for subscribers. On the horizon are “Young Justice: Outsiders,” “Doom Patrol,” “Swamp Thing,” “Stargirl,” and “Harley Quinn.” There will also be new animated films like “Reign of the Supermen,” and a wide array of classic movies and TV shows available to members in 2019.
The trailer is just a tease for the new content scheduled to release next year, but DC Universe has been releasing new trailers for the individual shows while we wait for the premieres. Earlier this month the platform teased “Doom Patrol,” which will be the next live-action series, giving the show a trailer and a premiere date. “Doom Patrol” is scheduled to premiere on February 15th and star Matt Bomer, Brendan Fraser, April Bowlby, Diane Guerrero, Joivan Wade, and Timothy Dalton. The story follows a team of superheroes who have all suffered because of their powers, either through personal loss or social isolation. The original crew was created in 1963 by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani.
“Stargirl” and “Swamp Thing” were also teased in the 2019 trailer, but we are still waiting on official trailers and release dates for those shows. “Stargirl” added Joel McHale as Starman/Sylvester Pemberton, the show will follow Brec Bassinger who is playing the role Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl. As for “Swamp Thing,” that series recently cast Ian Ziering as the Blue Devil, with Crystal Reed playing the character Abby Arcane. Andy Bean and Derek Mears will split the role of the Swamp Thing, with Bean taking the human form and Mears playing the swampy alter-ego.
Hopefully, we will get official trailers for those shows in the new year. Until then, we have “Titans” Season 1 and a lot of comics to catch up with on the service.
