As soon as the bombshell that DC Universe was canning its Swamp Thing TV series after just one episode came out, people were looking for a good reason why it happened. Multiple fan news outlets, including this one, reported that WB had been relying on a tax break provided by North Carolina (where the one-season series was shot).
Yikes…..Warner Bros’ DC Universe streaming service just canned its latest series after uploading just one episode to the server. Is what just happened to Swamp Thing a sign of bad times ahead for DC Universe as a whole?
DC Comics has been stating for a while now that they were going to be releasing a streaming service all their own. One that would house certain programming that wouldn’t be on stations like Fox, CW, or Syfy. Well, today they revealed that the streaming service itself would be called DC Universe. Which is actually quite apropos, as that’s a name that’s been associated for DC Comics for quite some time.
When it comes to DC Comics, they have numerous iconic characters. And each of them has a fanbase all their own that want to see more and more stories about them. I’m not talking about just “A-Listers” or heroes, villains, B-Team squads, and more have plenty of fans.
