    DC Entertainment have announced their forthcoming streaming service will be called DC Universe. They unveiled logos for their shows debuting on the platform this year, and on top of this, revealed that a Swamp Thing series is in the works from Aquaman director James Wan.

    First up is Titans, the first live-action TV show starring Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter). The show will also feature Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as Hawk and Dove, and the Doom Patrol, consisting of Niles Cauldir (Bruno Bichir), Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby), Robotman (Jake Michaels), and Negative Man (Dwain Murphy).

    Then we have Young Justice: Outsiders, the third season of the revived Cartoon Network series. Writer Greg Weisman returns for the series, which will star Static, Kid Flash, Robin, Wonder Girl, Spoiler, Blue Beetle, Beast Boy, and Arsenal as well as new characters Arrowette and Thirteen.

    Next there’s Harley Quinn, a 26-episode animated series starring the Joker’s ex-girlfriend from Powerless executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker and writer Dean Lorey.

    Finally there’s Swamp Thing. Deadline reports the live-action series is written by Mark Verheiden (Ash vs. Evil Dead, Constantine) and Gary Dauberman (the Annabelle and It films), and will center on Abby Arcane and her relationship with Alec Holland before and after his murder. Wan will serve as executive producer.

    Absent from this announcement is Metropolis, the 13-part live-action series focusing on Lois Lane and Lex Luthor before Superman’s arrival. The show, which was announced earlier this year, is being reportedly redeveloped. Stay tuned to Multiversity Comics for all the latest on these shows, and for them to start rolling out later this year.
