Fans of Greg Berlanti‘s Arrowverse should be especially excited by the news that is coming out of the HBO Max press event. The showrunner who is behind hit CW DC shows like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman will now be working on two new DC shows that will be available for streaming exclusively on HBO Max.
It’s been announced that Berlanti will be developing Green Lantern and Strange Adventures series, which will be among the many new titles featured on the streaming service. More on the report below.
Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi, was unremarkable to say the least. Reynolds has gone on to do other things like Deadpool while Waititi is perhaps better known for his directorial efforts, some of which also featured him in starring roles.
And now it looks like the long-awaited reunion between the two is finally happening. But not for a Green Lantern sequel. According to new reports, the two will pair up for Free Guy, a video game based comedy. More info on the project below.
DC Universe will be an online hub for all things DC Comics. Not only is it a place to access classic shows and read some great comics books, it will also be a place for original content like Titans. The show based on the younger heroes of DC Comics will see Robin (Brenton Thwaites) bring a group of superpowered beings like Raven (Teagan Croft), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) to become a new group of defenders. While reactions have been mixed, DC Universe has ordered a second season of the show right before the first one is supposed to air. Which is an extremely high vote of confidence. More on this, plus a new trailer here below.
The DC Universe has dropped their first trailer for the live-action Titans, and it’s something. Unlike the sunny and comical Teen Titans we’ve seen on Cartoon Network, this is a complete departure from all of that. It’s looks darker, grittier, and Robin has a choice word about his former mentor Batman. A four letter choice word to be precise.
Check out the first trailer for Titans, along with how much the DC Universe streaming service will cost, below.

Last week on The CW’s crossover “Crisis on Earth-X,” members of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow converged on Central City to celebrate the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Alas, that wedding did not happen because Nazis from Earth-35 aka Earth-X, the terrible world where Hitler won WWII, invaded the church and a fierce battle ensued. Our heroes had to fight their way out through Metallo, Red Tornado, OverGirl (Melissa Benoist), Evil Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), and Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They had one hero on their side that was lost on their Earth – Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller).
