3 lesser known DC Universe projects you should keep a lookout for in 2019
With the launch of DC Universe, the sky is the limit for DC and the comic book cum SVoD platform has some amazing projects lined up for 2019.
DC made a bold move in 2018 by creating their own network, DC Universe, and will be releasing almost all their intellectual property through it, from comics to a streaming service for their vintage movies and even their latest show releases. The network is meant to be an immersive experience designed just for DC fans.
While CW currently has exclusive rights to air all their original superhero shows, eight days after a new season concludes, the shows will move out of the CW network, and will subsequently air on Netflix and also the DC Universe. While Marvel may be getting a network of their own, they are outdoing DC on social media platforms. However, DC is fast losing its archaic ways and quickly getting with the program. DC Universe offers a unique solution for all old and new DC fans in one perfect package of mixed media on their SVoD website www.dcuniverse.com.
DC now has the freedom to release the shows and online webcomics, and along with comics, this year sees an explosion of never-before-seen superhero projects arriving on the platform. We've listed some of the projects we're excited for this year:
'Justice League vs. The Fatal Five'
While the Justice League movies may not be something fans really look out for, DC's animated universe is absolutely owning the superhero genre. DC's been a little secretive about this project, and has released their trailer fairly recently. All we know is that the Fatal Five is a group of supervillains from the 31st century on the hunt for the up-and-coming Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz, but they need to go through the Justice League and also Starboy to get to her.
The classic graphic novel 'Batman: Hush', which was originally published from 2002 to 2003, is about to get its very own movie! The title refers to the villain Hush, who plagues Batman and wreaks havoc on Gotham City, but Batman may be facing a very familiar villain in Hush, and he just doesn't know it yet. We fully trust DC's adaptations to animated movies, and it seems 'Batman: Hush' will have its place among the greats like 'Gotham by Gaslight'.
'Wonder Woman: Bloodlines'
This is the last of the animated DC films scheduled to come out this year after 'Reign of Supermen'. The warrior princess of Themyscira is finally back in her first feature since 2009, and this is another movie, DC has been really secretive about which usually means the movie will be amazing! The overwhelming success of the live-action Wonder Woman film is another reason for Wonder Woman's return to animated TV. At this moment we can speculate that Wonder Woman may be exploring her heritage (bloodlines, duh!) and finding out about more about her godly family.
DC's animated universe is making big promises, and we can't wait for their films to take flight this year. Fans of DC comics can view their favorite DC shows and comics exclusively on www.dcuniverse.com.
