There are few fans as dedicated to their cause as those powering up the DC universe. They are passionate, knowledgeable and as creative as the brain-trust behind DC itself. And now, with the launch of the DC Fans Channel on YouTube, those super-fans have an outlet for their love of all things DC and their own creativity.
It’s a great time to be a fan of DC and Vertigo characters with new and established television series like Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, iZombie and Supergirl, not to mention the onslaught of events coming to both the Silver Screen and the little one over the next year: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Lucifer, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad (as well as Wonder Woman coming to theaters in 2017). It is definitely becoming a DC world, and we all just live in it.
While fans have been sharing their own DC-related videos for years with their own followers, the new DC Fans Channel will allow the videos (and their creators) to be discovered by even more of their fellow DC fans!
The channel is currently divided into these categories to help the creators and viewers:
DC Cosplay shows how fans are bringing characters to life through make-up, costumes, props and tutorials.
DC Freestyle brings to light the fun and imaginative ways fans go all in on DC.
DC How-To lets fans get crafty with food, toys, and more.
DC University is the place where fans explore the past, present and future of the entire DC Multiverse.
DC Collections lets fans show off their comic, collectible, and other cool DC collections.
DC Reads brings the discussions around DC Comics to life.
DC Fans of the Week highlights a few DC-curated choices from the other six categories.
There’s also one final list called DC Verified Fans, which consists of original videos from fans debuting on the DC Fans channel. (DC All Access viewers will see a few familiar faces in there.) Look for this list to grow in the weeks and months ahead.
The folks at DC are obviously excited about this new outlet for fans, stating: “We’re looking for new videos to highlight and share every week.” So what are you waiting for? Read the submission guidelines, start creating and submit your content by e-mailing it to: [email protected].
