WarnerMedia’s recent corporate realignment could have a significant impact on its DC Universe streaming service. Variety reports that while the DC brand itself may be expanding in the future, both DC Comics and DC Universe have reportedly been hit with layoffs.
It’s currently unclear how such moves might affect the streaming service, which features a mix of original content and entries from DC’s back catalog of films and animated series.
Some of the service’s original shows have found homes on other services recently, including Doom Patrol, which is also available on WarnerMedia’s HBO Max.
Earlier this month, the critically acclaimed animated series Harley Quinn was also made available on HBO Max.
Adding more fuel to the fire: Fans have noted that yearly subscriptions to DC Universe are no longer available. What’s more, DC Universe branding was reportedly removed from both shows like Harley Quinn and Titans recently.
It’s possible the service’s library of shows and movies may be absorbed into HBO Max at some point, but that remains in the realm of speculation while we await official announcements from WarnerMedia.
