Details of DC’s digital streaming service are finally emerging from the swamp. Not only has the new network confirmed a “DC Universe” name with first looks at Titans, Harley Quinn and more, but a Swamp Thing series with Aquaman director James Wan has entered the pool.
FOX’s Gotham finally managed to turn Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome into a real Joker, but the joke may be on us. Producers are already walking back the show’s new green-haired menace, and won’t actually call him “The Joker.”
Black Lightning got fan hopes up when it started namedropping Supergirl and Arrow characters, but don’t expect Jefferson Pierce or his daughters to fight aliens just yet. Producers are walking back the potential for crossover with other CW shows, save one notable caveat.
DC hasn’t shown very much of its upcoming live-action Titans just yet, but leaked set photos are causing controversy. Not only are the character designs under debate, but Starfire actress Anna Diop is now contending with hate speech and harassment over social media.
Arrow, Flash and others work around DC’s live-action limitations, even as certain properties remain in development hell. A live-action Batman Beyond in particular has eluded fans, but a new post from the Arrow-verse concept artist might bring that dream closer to reality.
