DC Entertainment has unveiled the first details on the upcoming DC Universe streaming service.

You can check them out below.

Television, Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol are slated for a 2019 release while the dramatic, live action adventure series Titans will premieres later this year. DC Universe will be the first-its-kind, one-stop-shop digital service that will feature stream original live action and animated series. "It's a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories and experiences they have come to expect from DC", Jim Lee, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, said in a statement. The comic book company - home of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc. - is hoping to take a bite out of the lucrative streaming market, offering fans original content along with a substantial catalog of older movies and TV series, plus digital comic books. This gritty take on the classic Titans franchise finds Dick Grayson and a special young girl possessed by a unusual darkness named Rachel Roth as they get embroiled in a conspiracy. The first will be the live-action "Titans" series, featuring the likes of Robin, Starfire, and Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes. That's just an - dare we say it? - incredible coincidence.
