Swamp Thing trailer

The comic book character Swamp Thing hasn’t appeared in film or television in a significant way since the 1990s, but that’s about to change when he gets his own live-action series on the DC Universe streaming service this summer.

We caught a quick glimpse of the character in a brief teaser last week, but now there’s a full trailer for the upcoming show that leans into the horror angle and capitalizes on the fact that James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious) is executive producing the series. Check it out below.

doom patrol trailer new

A new Doom Patrol trailer is here, and it sure does lean into how funny the show is supposed to be. There’s jokes galore, and even some meta commentary, as villain Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk) flat-out calls the characters “TV superheroes.” Are they going for some Deadpool-style fourth wall breaking here, or is that line out of context? Who knows! Watch the Doom Patrol trailer below.

DC Universe Shows

On September 15, a day also known as Batman Day, DC Entertainment launched its DC Universe streaming platform, a service that aims to cater to those who want to become immersed in the DC world.

On October 12, the platform premiered its first original show — Titans — which to date is best known for showing a Dick Grayson grumbling, “Fuck Batman!” in a trailer released at July’s San Diego Comic-Con. 

From September 15 through October 12, I’ve watched and read stuff on the platform via Apple TV as well as on my iPhone and iPad. And over the past month, my feelings about the platform have ranged from thinking it’s okay (there’s a bunch of old content on it; some of it is good) to thinking it’s the most frustrating platform in existence (the UI sucks, although it is slowly improving). Throw in watching the first episode of Titans, and I have a lot of feelings. Feelings I will share with you now.

Is the service worth the $7.99 a month (or $74.99 a year) price tag? Let’s discuss.

The crown jewel of the DC Universe subscription won’t arrive in October when the original series Titans debuts, but once it does, it will be the beginning of a constant stream of original programming week after week.

Beginning with Titans, DC Universe will debut one new episode of an original series each week. However, that will increase as time goes on and the number of original projects grows. Find out more about the DC Universe release plans below. Read More »

titans images

Three new images have debuted from Titans, the gritty reimagining of the classic DC Comics team. One is a cheesy official production photo and the other two are overly dim stills of Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) meeting a familiar face. Either way, visually, this show looks a mess. But hopefully — maybe — the story’s good?
