The list for HBO Max’s October additions is out, and while we’re gaining some DC content, we’re also losing some.

With the impending change of mission for DC Universe, all DC video content is moving to HBO Max. The biggest addition of the month is 2013’s Man of Steel, but we’ll also see additions such as Catwoman and Jonah Hex.

And while we’re receiving new content, we’re also losing some of the animated movies as well as V for Vendetta.
