DC Comics announce "DC Daily" series for DC Universe streaming service, along with a sneak peek hosted by Kevin Smith

Even without a firm launch date, we're still kind of counting down the days until the DC Universe streaming service launches.  I mean, you get Brendan Fraser to play Robotman in a live-action Doom Patrol series and you have my attention.

While we're waiting for the service to fully launch, DC are here to at least make the wait a little bit easier.  They've announced that the service will be host to DC Daily, a daily show that will have interviews, news segments, and other exclusive features for subscribers.  To kick it off, Kevin Smith will host a live stream next Wednesday evening, giving fans a first look at the service and the show itself.  Check out the details below.
