It’s been rough at DC lately. WarnerMedia took out the axe and has chopped down both comics and eliminated jobs. They are also moving all DC originals from DC Universe to HBO Max.
Having been paid subscribers since December 2019, we’ve been anxiously following along with what will happen at DCU. Our speculation has been that it would be kept mostly a comics-only platform and the majority of movies and TV shows would be moved to HBO Max.
According to comments made by Jim Lee, that appears to be the plan.
Lee added, “In regards to the community and experience that DCU created, and all the backlist content, something like 20,000 to 25,000 different titles, and the way it connected with fans 24-7, there is always going to be a need for that. So we’re excited to transform it and we’ll have more news on what that will look like. It’s definitely not going away.”Jim Lee Reveals the Future of DC Universe
So, to the rest of the paid DC Universe subscribers, this should end the speculation about DCU being shuttered any time soon. Lee also hints that we’ll learn more about the plans for DCU future more specifically soon. Our guess on that is it will happen at the one day FREE virtual event, DC FanDome that happens Saturday August 22.
