DC UNIVERSE surprised fans tonight with a pair of announcements during the world premiere screening of Warner Bros. Television's highly anticipated action-drama Titans at New York Comic Con (NYCC).
At the world premiere of Titans, held in conjunction with New York Comic-Con, DC UNIVERSE unveiled a new trailer for the much anticipated live-action original produced by Warner Bros. Television. Titans follows a team of young heroes as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Ahead of the season one debut of Titans on October 12, the live-action show has been picked up for a second season exclusively on the all new DC UNIVERSE digital subscription service.
DC UNIVERSE also revealed a sneak peek of the upcoming animated series Harley Quinn (2019) featuring Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory) who will voice the lead role. The adult animated comedy series follows Harley’s adventures, where alongside ragtag crew of DC castoffs, she tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. The strong voice cast for Harley Quinn also includes comedic talents such as Lake Bell (In a World…, Wet Hot American Summer series, Childrens Hospital), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Ron Funches (Powerless), JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries), Diedrich Bader (Veep), Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), Chris Meloni (Happy!, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).
Additionally, Brendan Fraser (Crash, The Mummy), who will voice Robotman, announced that Matt Bomer (White Collar, American Horror Story) has been cast as Larry Trainor/Negative Man in Doom Patrol (2019). The upcoming live-action spinoff is a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcasts led by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder. These announcements expand the impressive list of talent signing on to DC UNIVERSE originals, including Joivan Wade (Doctor Who, The First Purge) as Cyborg in Doom Patrol and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, Taken, The L Word) as Sheriff Lucilia Cable in Swamp Thing.
“This is just the beginning of our journey to open up the world of DC for our fans,” said Craig Hunegs, President, Warner Bros. Digital Networks. “With new originals, digital comics, and a growing community forum, we’re delivering an immersive experience that blends page and screen, creating a place where fans can share their passions for their favorite superheroes and storylines like never before. With our first original series, Titans, debuting this month we are truly offering an exclusive experience fans have always clamored for.”
Yknow what? I liked that particular Titans trailer the most out of all of them, thus far... Looks like Kori and Dick if indeed that was Dick are actually gonna hook up. To what extent, I guess well have to wait and see. But, at least the hint is another point in their favor.
And daaaamn that Harly Quinn teaser was interesting... That Deadpool burn though.
