HBO Max Gets Green Lantern, Strange Adventures, DC Superhero High, Doom Patrol, and More

HBO Max got a massive amount of information dumped today with reveals of what subscribers can expect.

The digital service is showing some love for fans of DC Comics with multiple shows. DC and HBO have the same parent company.

DC films of the last decade will be available within the first year of launch as well as every Superman and Batman movie from the last 40 years. Joker will debut on the service in 2020 as well.

But, it’s not just about movies, it’s television shows as well.

Greg Berlanti is developing a pair of shows for the service. Strange Adventures will be a DC superhero anthology that features DC characters from across their history. A series that focuses on the world of Green Lantern is also being worked on but details are scarce.

Also announced is a teen comedy, DC Superhero High from Elizabeth Banks. The series concept sounds a bit like the popular young reader comic series DC Super Hero Girls.

Finally, HBO Max will compete a bit with the DC Universe app as Doom Patrol will debut on the platform.

HBO Max will be available for $14.99 launching May 2020. It will be free for those with HBO and AT&T service and those with HBO Now will get HBO Max. Those who subscribe to HBO through a cable provider are currently in the dark.

Tom King and Mitch Gerads Team Up for Strange Adventures

Due out in 2020, DC Comics has announced Strange Adventures which features Adam Strange by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, and Doc Shaner.

This is the latest project by King and Gerads whose Mister Miracle dominated the Eisner Awards at San Diego Comic-Con.

It’s unknown the exact length or form of the project but King and Gerads have been releasing award-winning 12-issue maxi-series so it’d make little sense to change up that magic formula.
