Showcase’s premiering Marvel’s Runaways almost two weeks after Hulu’s premiere could hurt it. Marvel’s Runaways’ first season had a one-day lag between Canadian and US premieres. On the other hand, Showcase has a skein of comic book-related shows with this, Supergirl and Happy! It’s the standard rights tradeoff, yet at least Showcase promotes Marvel’s Runaways half-decently.
This is one of the series that interests Gloryosky in DC Universe. While the streaming service isn’t Canada-bound – yet – Teletoon and Cartoon Network Canada aired Young Justice’s first two seasons.
DC Universe has a few live-action and animated series on tap for 2019, yet Young Justice: Outsiders is one of DC Universe’s greatest selling points. I’m personally not in the age group for Young Justice. Despite this, Young Justice is a well-crafted series, with an audience clamoring for its return. Greg Weisman-produced shows ending before their time is standard operating procedure, so it’s nice to see this one earn its second chance.
It’s too bad DC Universe doesn’t yet have a Canadian equivalent. Presumably, Young Justice goes to Netflix Canada in a manner similar to Titans. DC Universe is a streaming service Gloryosky wants to see in Canada soon. Hopefully it does, as DC Entertainment’s chief strength is in its television series. Young Justice: Outsiders better be worth its long-brewing hype.
