DC Entertainment, home to Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, is launching its own digital service in 2018.
DC is partnering with Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group on the direct-to-consumer digital platform.
The announcement marks the second major new service launched by Warner Bros Digital Networks — launched in 2016 with the mandate of building WB-owned digital and OTT video services — following the recently introduced animation platform, Boomerang.
The new service is expected to be more than a traditional OTT service; it is designed as an immersive experience with fan interaction and will encompass comics as well as TV series.
The first series for the platform has already been commissioned: Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter will produce live-action series Titans; while animated series Young Justice relaunching as Young Justice: Outsiders.
