This is kind of short but I’m kind of frustrated right now. Emerald Dawn was promoted by the press and DCU as coming to the service ahead of time along with Batman: Hush. After a bizarre turn of events, Emerald Dawn was removed from the service after 1 day up. Denying the 2 weeks discussion that has been ongoing and promised by the service.
Lots more comics with focus on full arcs. This has changed fans perspective on DCU for the better and brought the press to discuss DCU
The removal of Emerald Dawn was a promise DCU broke to its fans. Applejack has said the removal is not reflective of the service but it still stings. Promises are promises and without more info and/ or closure DC fans are going to question if DCU truly means what they’ve said. They’ve claimed nothing is getting removed in April for movies at least. We shall see if that stays true.
DCU has given fans the ability to go see Shazam ahead of time (for free) much to fans excitement. This increased effort to reward fans outside of the service is incredibly exciting and gives a lot of hopes for what the service can be.
DCU also overbooked dramatically and turned many people over not having space. Reserving seats instead for the press. Some people who drove over 3 hours to see the film got turned down. Those 3 hours alone cost gas which way have even payed for a year subscription to DCU. In Houston, America’s 3rd largest city, they booked the smallest IMAX theatre in the entire city and over booked. That is a bunch of B.S. and after hearing about this expect people driving from Houston and Dallas to wait up to 3 hours to get in guarenteed. Also I myself got turned down despite being told I could to an unrelated early showing of Shazam! because DC changed plans last minute after moving my schedule around to make sure I could go. That’s mostly why I’ve written this article.
DC needs to stick to there promises. If they are over booking, let fans know that getting there an hour early likely means you won’t get in. Also if you are DC compensate the fans who feel left out right now. Give them something as an apology. You gave yourselves a big headache; fix it!!
