Warner Bros.‘ film division is sitting out San Diego Comic-Con this year, but the TV division will be there in full force, and that includes DC Universe, the streaming service dedicated to bringing the heroes of DC Comics to life. The service has unveiled four new posters that will be distributed at SDCC featuring the animated ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ which is returning for part two of its first season, and the live-action series ‘Titans’, ‘Doom Patrol’, and surprisingly, ‘Swamp Thing’.
It’s interesting that ‘Swamp Thing’ is getting a promotional poster when Warner Bros. cut the first season down from 13 to 10 episodes during production, and then cancelled it outright after only one episode had been released. This poster makes a nice keepsake for fans, but it’s interesting that DC Universe is promoting a show that has no future.

Check out the four posters below:
While ‘Swamp Thing’ has been cancelled, the jury still seems to be out on ‘Doom Patrol’. After a well-received first season, DC Universe still hasn’t announced whether or not a second season has been ordered. But that could absolutely change at SDCC.
Being the first live-action show on DC Universe, ‘Titans’ is basically its flagship show, and a second season was ordered before the first even arrived. The second season will be released before the end of the year. The poster seems to be based more on Season One, as Starfire is wearing her much-hated costume from those episodes, and while Wonder Girl appears, she is concealed in a black jacket. Fans are looking forward to seeing her in her red super-suit in Season 2. Krypto appears at the bottom of the poster, as he was in the post-credits scene of Season 1’s final episode.
Beast Boy takes center stage on the ‘Young Justice’ poster, despite him barely appearing in the first batch of episodes. The same goes for Blue Beetle and Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark, not to be confused with Donna Troy, the Wonder Girl from ‘Titans’).
One reason the state of ‘Doom Patrol’ may be cloudy is that the fate of DC Universe was in question, as Warner Bros./WarnerMedia is preparing to launch a more expansive streaming service, HBO Max, later this year. But for the time being, it seems DC Universe will continue as normal.
SDCC kicks off this week, with a preview day on Wednesday and continues through Sunday. The two-hour DC Universe “Sneak Previews and Q&A” will take place on Saturday night (7/20) from 7-9 pm at the Indigo Ballroom.
