Last year, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment announced that they were launching a new digital broadcast platform that would include both animated and live action series. Now, that service has a name, DC Universe, and an official home page on the DC Comics website.
The home page describes the platform as "the first digital immersion experience designed just for DC fans", with access to exclusive original series. Several shows have already been announced for the platform, including the animated Young Justice: Outsiders live action adaptation of DC & # 39; s Titans comics, and an animated series focused on the favorite of Harley Quinn fans. Today it was also announced that a series of live action Swamp Thing would come to the service.
Based on the comics of Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the one-hour drama Swamp Thing will be written by Mark Verheiden ( Daredevil Ash vs. Evil Dead ) and Gary Dauberman ( It is ). Greg Berlanti ( Arrow The Flash) will write and produce the series Titans together with Akiva Goldsman ( A Beautiful Mind ).  While DC Universe does not yet have a release date, it is expected that Titans will debut sometime in 2018, with Swamp Thing targeted for a 2019 release.
