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.

Review: Batman/Superman #3

Batman/Superman #3

Batman/Superman #3 continues to deliver a hell of a series as we begin to see the larger picture of what’s going on.

Written by Joshua Williamson the issue has Superman infected by The Batman Who Laughs. The issue teases out what’s to come and by the end, it’s much clearer this is a much bigger story tying into DC’s meta.

Williamson is able to deliver an issue that’s enjoyed on its own. At the same time, for those paying attention to “Year of the Villain” and “Tales From the Dark Multiverse,” you’ll be extra thrilled with the issue. Though this is a race to find out who’s infected and cure them, there’s so much more going on. That, and the fact Williamson is focused on numerous relationships makes the issue resonate.

The art by David Marquez with color by Alejandro Sanchez delivers. There’s some powerful moments and action sequences and you can feel the impact of the punches and crashes. The lettering by John J. Hill adds to the twisted nature of it all, especially Superman, as the infected grow.

The issue delivers and really moves the series and story along. There’s a sense of desperation you can feel coming from Batman as he struggles with what to do. Add in Superman realizing this isn’t an easy fight and you truly get a sense of a struggle. The series is delivering one of the best experiences from DC right now.
