DC Universe subscribers can soon get a double dose of the Caped Crusader this February.
(No, not Matt Reeves' The Batman, which has gotten some pretty major updates in recent days.)
The New Batman Adventures, which ran from 1997 to 1999, will be available on DC Universe as of Friday, February 1st. The animated series served as a continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, and consisted of 24 episodes.
The Batman, on the other hand, ran from 2004 to 2008 during the "Kids" block on WB (and later The CW). The animated series existed within its own distinct continuity, and featured Rino Romano voicing the titular role.
These two shows join the latest batch of content joining DC Universe's library, with the live-action Doom Patrol series set to begin debuting on February 15th. This comes as the service also plans to more than double its comic content, with iconic storylines like Batman: Hush, 2009's Batgirl, and 52 on the way.
"When launching DC Universe we knew the comic reader was an area that we wanted to expand and provide more choice. Fans want a place to discover new titles and the opportunity to enjoy full arcs of iconic and notable storylines from start to finish," said Sam Ades, senior vice president and general manager, DC Digital Services. "We are listening to fans and responding with an expanded comic book offering that improves the overall DC Universe experience."
DC Universe is available at $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually (plus taxes, where applicable). DC Universe is available in the U.S. on iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Android TV and the Roku platform, as well as the web and mobile web, with additional platforms coming soon.
