I think it goes without saying that DC Comics’ upcoming DC Universe streaming service is one of the most anticipated products of the year. With original series, classic movies, and plenty of comics, the app looks to be a one-stop shop for DC fans of all sorts. Before the launch of the service this fall, though, DC will be presenting a fully immersive fan experience at San Diego Comic-Con next week. From interactive simulations to displays of rare and exclusive memorabilia, the experience will surely take the already high anticipation to the next level.
BURBANK, CA (July 10, 2018) – DC UNIVERSE, a first-of-its-kind digital subscription service designed especially for DC fans, will come to life with over half a dozen immersive, interactive experiences at Comic-Con International. Fans will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the DC Universe for the first time and literally walk through the originals, classics and comics soon to be available through the digital service.
Open for four days only Thursday, July 19 to Sunday, July 22. A larger-than-life installation of epic proportions will welcome fans into interactive spaces that bring iconic characters and stories to life.
Register now at DCUniverseExperience.com. After registering, fans will head to the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, directly across the street from the San Diego Convention Center. Guests of the activation will interact with dozens of activities and installations including:
