Confirmed nowAnd we don't have a time frame for S2 yet so they could easily shelve the service and put S2 on something else like HBO. The schedule that they put out last year ends at Harley Quinn in Dec. I thought we might see an updated schedule at SDCC but that's not happening now.
It's a rumor for now.
As I said before, DCU doesn't make a ton of sense by itself if you're about to do WarnerMedia streaming.
It might be a result of the merger. The WarnerMedia development team got a new leader. Maybe he looked at their current slate of streaming services and decided to fold DCU in sooner than his predecessor did.As I said before, DCU doesn't make a ton of sense by itself if you're about to do WarnerMedia streaming.
But Swamp Thing feels like something else. You cut the show's episode count, then cancel it a week out from launch? There's something else there. Maybe cost overruns? I know they had a special set for it.
These are still some of THE most popular streaming shows. DC isn’t going to get rid of them. Swamp Thing is a different case altogether
Like every other initiative, DC Universe is being reevaluated following the completion of AT&T acquisition of Time Warner as WarnerMedia has put an emphasis on the launch of a new streaming platform. There have been questions how DC Universe fits into those plans.
Yep. ATT is looking over WB to see what can be changed. I wouldn't be shocked if they spun the shows into the WarnerMedia service and left DCU as just a comic reader platform.
Which is what I was saying before.
The CW portion is the only near-negative there. I'm a horror fan; I don't need to be convinced good stuff is capable of being made for significantly less than a hundred million dollars or even just half of that, I'm aware of a long long lonnnnnng history of exactly that
Incase anyone wants the source.
The other shows should be cheaper, as Swamp Thing has specific requirements. (Like that special water tank.)
, well i just learned about the show last week with the premiere :P everybody was talking about how the thing looked
I should update that because now it looks like someone heard around 40M instead of around 14m and basically screwed the show because of it. I don't think Swamp Thing would have been greenlit if WB didn't think they had a 40M tax break coming.
If that gets me HBO and the DC Universe shows and comics, I'm all in.https://variety.com/2019/digital/news/warnermedia-streaming-service-pricing-bundle-hbo-cinemax-1203235027/
So around $16/17 for everything WarnerMedia related. Not a horrible deal tbh.
Not if WB doesn't pick up his contract.
Several major Hollywood studios are courting J.J. Abrams, who is looking to land a lucrative megadeal with a big media company, a number of Hollywood insiders told Variety. People familiar with th…variety.com
I don't agree. He's very good at shooting suspenseful scenes and big budget action... He studied under Speilberg. He's a pretty good story teller as well. He seems like he's an ideas guy who likes to start stories or interesting franchises... Perfect for what the DCEU needs right now IMO.
He is a very poor man's Spielberg with none of the touch.I don't agree. He's very good at shooting suspenseful scenes and big budget action... He studied under Speilberg.

Feel the same way.
I can understand that viewpoint... But I think he understands characters and how to work them in an interesting and coherent story. Not saying he's particularly great at it but casual movie goers and critics tend to like his stuff.He is a very poor man's Spielberg with none of the touch.
He knows how to mimic poorly.
There is nothing inherently interesting or unique about his films.
I get that some people want that kind of bland inoffensive film making but its not for me at all. I feel like I've seen his films before I ever watch them.
