I don’t see how HBOM and DCU can continue as separate services. How does it make any sense to have the current DC cinematic universe movies and the CWverse available on HBOM but not available on the actual dedicated DC streaming service?! Likewise, why would you make the Donner Superman movies exclusive to DCU while having the Supergirl movie exclusively on HBOM? The DC execs don’t want to admit it, but all signs point to DCU being absorbed into HBOM at some point unless the comic book aspect of that service somehow becomes big enough to stand on it’s own… Read more »

I hope I can help shed a light on this because there’s a couple of problems with this statement.

If I’m a huge fan of DC movies and shows and I want access to all things DC, then I need to pay $20+ a month for access to all of the DC movie/TV content that AT&T/WB controls at the moment. That’s a little ridiculous considering the same scenario on… Read more »

I can understand what you’re saying and where you’re coming from. But I have to go with what’s been stated by verified sources rather than speculation and rumor. Ever since DC Universe started, I’ve seen people waiting for it to burn. Now, I’m not saying this is what you’re saying. It’s not. What you’re saying isn’t so draconian. But so many false rumors and speculations have spread about this service and it gets very old very fast. I’ve seen a few posts on the forums from “new” members (I put those in quotation marks because the forums are open to… Read more »
