BURBANK, Calif. – October 4, 2018 – 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.

Coming soon to DC UNIVERSE:
1984 classic film Supergirl starring Helen Slater will be released on October 5 and be available through the end of 2018. After losing a powerful orb, Kara, Superman’s cousin, comes to Earth to retrieve it and instead finds herself up against a wicked witch.
In 2019 DC Universe original animated movies Reign of The Supermen, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, and Batman: Hush will join the DC UNIVERSE service.
David Goyer’s live-action series Krypton will also premiere on DC UNIVERSE in 2019. Season 1 previously aired on the SYFY network and will now become available to DC UNIVERSE members. Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Created exclusively for DC UNIVERSE, a new prequel comic book for Young Justice: Outsiders will accompany the exclusive original animated series in 2019 and will be created by producer Greg Weisman and artist Christopher Jones.
