All the rumors of DC Universe’s pending death may be premature, if today’s news is any indication. The Streamer is going big, no HUGE for Comic-Con 2019. While Warner Movies will not be hosting hall H panels, the entire DC universe is going to be all over the show and will have over 47 panels! 47! Featuring everything from comics to animation to tv to film and will have the largest booth at Comic-Con. They are bringing the Shazam Thunder! They are even doing the world premiere of Batman: Hush, Friday night at 7pm. Check out the press release for all the highlights!
DC Universe is not playing around, if you haven’t checked out the service, run, don’t walk. After the critical success of their wonderfully weird Doom Patrol, they are going obscure again with the classic DC series Swamp Thing. From the opening sequence to the end of the 2nd episode I was hooked. There’s just something wonderfully creepy and cinematic about the unique viewing experience. Swamp Thing launches on the DC Universe App, May 31st.
With the WGA strike about to hit the three month mark, and with limited new episodes of our favorite programs remaining [and most done for the year, or at least until late April/early May], here’s a suggestion: try a few cable series that have recently premiered on DVD. Today we’re looking at one of USA’s earliest series, Swamp Thing: The Series, the first season of which – from Shout Factory! – is now in stores.
