It seems that the fate of DC Universe has been sealed ever since HBO Max was launched last May. For a while, DC Universe provided fans the promise of an all-inclusive DC experience, but it is now evident that this plan wasn’t a success. Instead, HBO Max is poised to take the responsibility of producing more content for the franchise while also providing fans a stacked library of DC films and TV shows.
Now, one of the head honchos of DC has offered an update on what is really happening to the platform
News:While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, iconic DC artist and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee confirmed that “the original content that is on DCU [DC Universe] is migrating to HBO Max” while also admitting that it is the “best platform” for DC content
The original content that is on DCU is migrating to HBO Max. Truthfully, that’s the best platform for that content. The amount of content you get, not just DC , but generally from WarnerMedia, is huge and it’s the best value proposition, if I’m allowed to use that marketing term. We feel that is the place for that.
Lee also opened up about his excitement to transform the content from DC universe, reassuring fans that “it’s definitely not going away:”
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.
