Did you see all the action on DC Daily this week? We hope so, because every day was packed with exclusive DC fan content you can’t find anywhere else! This week featured a trip to the red carpet for interviews with the cast and crew of Reign of the Supermen, a chat with Supergirl comic writer Marc Andreyko, and much more! Here are some of the highlights...

On Monday, January 14th, Brian Tong got to spend some time in every comic fans dream ride -- a DC Comics customized BMW X5 autonomous vehicle! The car was plastered with art from Jim Lee, and backseat passengers were given a surround screen experience to read DC Comics. This car just might be cooler than the Batmobile. When’s the next road trip?

Next, the DC Daily panel (Sam Humphries, Samm Levine, John Kourounis, Clarke Wolfe, and Whitney Moore) talked about Action Comics #1000. The gang were awestruck at how historical it was for any comic book to hit that record number, and how it portrays the need for Superman in the modern world.


On Tuesday, January 15th, the cast and crew of Reign of the Supermen (coming to DC Universe on January 29th!) gave fans a sneak peek at the upcoming animated movie. Afterwards, Brian Tong showed viewers some DC Universe features they may be unaware of. Did you know you can read comics on your TV?

Next, the DC Daily panel (John Kourounis, Sam Humphries, Harley Quinn Smith, Markeia McCarty, and Whitney Moore) discussed the Young Justice: Outsiders prequel comic (available exclusively here on DC Universe). The panel talked about the tension between Conner and Megan and speculated on what it would be like if they themselves were trapped in a sitcom like the team was in this comic. Can you guess which panelist wanted to be Mr. Roper from Three’s Company?


On Wednesday, January 16th, writer Marc Andreyko spoke about his current run on Supergirl and all the interesting things happening in it. Do you guys remember the Omega Men? Well, Marc has brought them back in Supergirl and it’s awesome! 


Next, the DC Daily panel (John Kourounis, Whitney Moore, Sam Humphries, Harley Quinn Smith, and Samm Levine) chatted about the animated film Superman vs. The Elite. The movie raises lots of great discussion points, and the panel dissected them all. Were the Elite really villains? Is Superman still relevant? The movie did win over Harley, who admitted she’s never been big on the Man of Steel. But after watching this movie she gave it an 11 out of 10!  


On Thursday, January 17th, the cast and crew of Reign of the Supermen were interviewed at the film's red carpet premiere. Jerry O’Connell (Superman), Gotham's Cameron Monaghan (Superboy), Tony Todd (Darkseid), and more gave us a taste of what we can expect from the much anticipated sequel to Death of Superman. An exclusive scene was then played just for the viewers of DC Daily!


Next, the DC Daily panel (Hector Navarro, Markiea McCarty, Sam Humphries, Whitney Moore, and Harley Quinn Smith) talked about the first three episodes of Young Justice: Outsiders. “Things are very rarely as awesome as Young Justice. It’s like one of the best things,” Whitney said. Can anybody really disagree with her? Rich Howard, host of Whelmed: The Young Justice Files podcast joined the crew to talk about recent little Easter eggs they may have missed. Rich’s observations can also be seen in our special Young Justice Enhanced episodes. 


On Friday, January 18th, the DC Daily panel (John Kourounis, Whitney Moore, Harley Quinn Smith, Samm Levine, and Clarke Wolfe) showed off some toys from the new DC Primal Age toy line. Whitney described the line as what would happen "if you were to take all the DC characters and turn them into an ’80s barbarian cartoon." The gang talked some more about Young Justice: Outsiders and all the exciting bits of content that have just been added to DC Universe, before finishing off with a talk about this week's DC Comics. 


Don’t forget, if you missed any of the action or want to see it again, DC Daily is available to stream every day right here on DC Universe. The gang has plenty of surprises ready for you next week, so make sure you check it out. After all, you never know who might stop by the couch!
