Warner Bros. may be skipping Hall H this year at San Diego Comic-Con, but that doesn’t mean there won’t still be events around the convention. And some of them are going to be exclusive to DC Universe members.
The main event for DC Universe will be a two-hour event on Saturday night, July 20, for 7-9pm in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront. Fans can expect sneak peeks, first looks, exclusive screenings and breaking news for Titans, Doom Patrol, Young Justice: Outsiders, and the upcoming adult-animated comedy series Harley Quinn.
“We are excited to showcase our original shows and share more news of what’s to come in year two for DC UNIVERSE,” said Sam Ades senior vice president and general manager, DC UNIVERSE. “In San Diego, we’ll embrace the ways in which DC UNIVERSE provides real-life membership benefits like no other service, designed specifically for DC fans. After last year’s amazingly successful introduction at SDCC, we’re thrilled to focus on the members who have made the service home to their DC fandom by offering unique, interesting experiences only we can provide.”
DC Universe annual members are also going to get opportunities to attend some special events including:
- An all-inclusive trip to San Diego
- Passes to the exclusive screening of the premiere of DC Spotlight: Shazam, a behind-the-scenes documentary
- VIP tickets to attend Batman’s induction into the Comic-Con Museum Hall of Fame
- Access to sign-up for a members-only signing with Jim Lee, world-renowned comic book artist, writer, editor and Publisher of DC
- A chance to attend a private, DCU member brunch on a yacht in the San Diego Marina with surprise talent appearances and special giveaways
DCU members will also get some extra perks at the booth on the show floor.
- Get an immersive glimpse into the world of the highly-anticipated, upcoming adult-animated comedy series Harley Quinn in a special booth activation that takes fans inside the comically twisted world of the new series with an Arkham interactive tour
- With purchase of an annual DC UNIVERSE membership on-site and online, fans will receive an exclusive gift set of four limited-edition comic books with new variant covers, including YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS #1, DETECTIVE COMICS #1000, SAGA OF SWAMP THING #21, and DOOM PATROL #19
- DCU members will have the opportunity to collect an original series print every day in the redemption area of the DC booth. The prints, inspired by DC UNIVERSE Original Series, were made by pop culture artists Doaly, Cliff Cramp, Chris Thornley, and Ruiz Burgos
DC Universe has launched a centralized page to keep track of everything that will be happening at the show that may be of interest to subscribers.
It sounds like it should be an awesome time for members of the service!
