DC Comics publisher and creative chief Jim Lee told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday that original TV shows on the DC Universe streaming service will move to HBO Max, parent company WarnerMedia’s new flagship streamer.
“The amount of content you get, not just DC, but generally from WarnerMedia, is huge and it’s the best value proposition if I’m allowed to use that marketing term,” Lee said.
In May, ahead of Max’s launch, Business Insider reported that WarnerMedia was not prioritizing DC Universe and insiders questioned the service’s longevity.
But while the service’s original content will leave for Max, Lee said that DCU is “definitely not going away.”
