Sci Fi TV News Briefs: Quick hits keeping you updated on sci fi and fantasy television news.
The Constantine animated series that is currently available for streaming at CWSeed.com will get its Prime Time debut this Fall on October 15th. That will precede by one week the fourth season premiere of Legends of Tomorrow which will have Constantine joining the team to fight the demon Mallus. Matt Ryan will host the hour-long animated series special which will also include a sneak peak at the coming season of LoT. On October 9th, the animated series will get its Blu-ray / DVD release which will include the five episodes completed thus far plus additional footage. It is unclear if that additional footage will also be included in the television broadcast.
The launch of the DC Universe Digital Subscription Service has been announced and it is sooner than you think. It will bow on September 15th, and its first original series, the live-action Titans, will debut on October 12th (it will get an early debut at New York Comic-Con on October 3rd). The streaming service will have in its library past DC animated series such as Batman: The Animated Series, Static Shock, and Teen Titans plus animated movies like Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Green Lantern: First Flight, and Wonder Woman. It will also have live action films such as the four Christopher Reeves Superman movies, Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight. Among the originals it will be offering are the above mentioned Titans series plus a live-action Doom Patrol series (debuting in 2019). New animated series that will begin streaming next year include Young Justice (a continuation of the 2010 series), Harley Quinn, and Swamp Thing. I have not seen a price point for the service yet, but expect that to be announced soon.
