But take Time Warner/WB for a second. Recently launched a Boomerang app, which I'm cool with. Then they announce this, which I'm cool with, but not gonna subscribe to both
Now imagine if they combined em... human mind is weird... 2 apps for 5 a month is diff than 1 for 10 to me. But would do that much easier
Building a streaming service around 2 shows and maybe some comics seems a little strange. I guess if they offered as many comics as the Marvel service for a similar price and also threw in the shows as a bonus that would work.
Waiting for the inevitable conformation this service will be US only. Hope Netflix gets the international rights for these shows.
So you subscribe to two, and subscribing to a third is a "million services" as you said? You don't even pay Amazon monthly. I mean you're of course able to subscribe to what you want to, but this kind of just shows me a lot of entitlement that I've been suspecting. It really isn't that much money.
That's worry #2. Worry #1 is that they'll pull a Teen Titans and can't mention that Dick is Bruce's son.
Like I can live without a cameo but at least let him acknowledge it!
When this service bombs and is inevitably cancelled, they'll take Young Justice with it.

Everyone remember when Futurama came back because of dvd sales and the revival seasons were straight to DVD? Yeah, me either. DC can't just have Netflix fund a show for them. I wouldn't worry about Young Justice getting cancelled so soon again. They're clearly putting a lot in this app and making it clear that YJ is a flagship show for them. Why anyone thinks they're just investing in all this and gonna cancel YJ immediately is beyond me.
I don't think people are worried that they're going to bring back and cancel YJ, they're worried that this entire Digital Service will crash and burn. It's in a similar situation as Yahoo Screen was when it debuted. YS revived a cult favorite show (Community) to kick things off, but that wasn't enough and a year later, YS was deemed a failure and essentially forgotten.
But what did YS have going for it besides Community? This service will have atleast two shows at launch, with a possibility of more being launched with it (Comic Con is coming up and the WB digital upfront is May 5th), plus we're likely getting comics with it as well.I don't think people are worried that they're going to bring back and cancel YJ, they're worried that this entire Digital Service will crash and burn.

I want these titans or it's a bust tbh
I've never been a fan of mainline DC comics, but if it has Vertigo stuff, I'm down as fuck. There are so many Vertigo comics I've been wanting to read for a while now.
I would be surprised if they include vertigo. at least at the beginning. I am expecting early era DC stuff, not even modern stuff. based off that promo pic.

Yeah, it does matter. Marvel Unlimited, a $10 monthly app with comics only, is doing just fine. A similar DC app with also media content would do even better.That doesn't matter. The fact is launching a new Digital Service with a small library is extremely risky when you're competing against juggernauts like HBOGO, Prime, and Netflix. Could it be a success? Who knows, but with what we know now, there's a chance that it won't.

If it's their entire comic library in HQ, I will sub and stay subbed. If it's more limited in its scope or not HQ then I'll just stick to Hoopla and it's free mediocre quality.
PS look into Hoopla.
This isn't the same, not even close. Marvel Unlimited doesn't need to worry about funding original programming, which isn't cheap, so what they consider "doing just fine" certainly won't be what DC considers "doing just fine". There's simply no way to predict how big of a hit this would be, but that still doesn't change the fact that they're taking an extreme risk doing it.
Marvel is getting people to pay $10 a month for shit image quality. I expect DC will do the same.If it's their entire comic library in HQ, I will sub and stay subbed. If it's more limited in its scope or not HQ then I'll just stick to Hoopla and it's free mediocre quality.

Yes!! Very happy to be writing the Titans again and working with this crew! Extremely excited. Will be something very different... #BeastBoy
Possible tease of the line-up or just a good pic?
Thats the first cover to Johns' run on Teen Titans from 15 years ago or so. It could also be the line-up though.
Interesting. Can't wait. Don't worry Netflix signed some multiyear deal with CW and stole it from hulu last year so those shows will still be on there (hopefully)
[John Crossland] Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal they drain a man of every last bit of spleen. John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle SERIES LEAD

[JAX] Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thiefs humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, hes learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking SERIES REGULAR
Cast breakdowns have been "leaked"
Let's do this!
An executive stipulating that the star of their show must be white is the only takeaway from that for me.
I do hope it's the usual vaguely similar character casting stuff at work. Because otherwise everyone has a secret, tortured past that they must reckon with and it sounds kinda boring.
