If nothing else, “F*** Batman!” is going to get people talking! But in all honestly, this is a very solid trailer for a show many were approaching with extreme skeptisicm. The YA/Freeform song used the in the trailer will certainly turn some people off, but I’m guessing/hoping that’s not really the tone of the show.
Also, the DC Universe service announced it’s monthly/yearly pricing for it’s launch and an opportunity to attend the Aquaman premiere if you pre-order. The $7.99 monthly option is a decent price for the amount new and classic content if you’re a DC Fan, but might be a couple dollars too high for the casual audience. But here’s the breakdown from the press release:
