DC Universe Offering 24 Hours Of Free Batman Content

2019 marks the 80th anniversary of Batman and the DC Universe subscription service is ready to celebrate.

March 30th, 1939 is the day that Batman made his debut in Detective Comics #27, so on Saturday, March 30th, 2019 DC Universe will be offering 24 hours of free Batman content. Films, TV shows, and comics featuring the Dark Knight will be free on the service. Also, as an added bonus, fans can get their first month of the digital service for only $0.80 for members who sign up between March 29th and April 4th, 2019.

This celebration will go from Midnight EST, March 30th until 11:59 PM EST.

While there is certainly no shortage of Batman content to consume during this 24 hour period, there are some interesting omissions, most notably Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy. No need to worry, though, there’s still plenty for you to consume in this 24 hour time frame.
