Digital giant Rooster Teeth is partnering with storied comic brand DC, which will curate programming for the digital network’s annual RTX gathering in Austin this summer.
DC is going full out at RTX, with panels and screenings from its Young Justice: Outsiders series (which airs on the DC Universe subscription service and is pictured above), exclusive details about the previously-announced RWBY and gen:LOCK comics, coverage of the event from the company’s DC Daily news show, and limited edition merch celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Batman character.
The partnership represents a team-up between two entities under the WarnerMedia umbrella. DC is home to iconic brands like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. RTX — where 65,000 fans convened in 2018 — will take place from July 5 to 7 at the Austin Convention Center and at a handful of surrounding hotels. The fan convention for lovers of all things animation, gaming, and comedy will also see the Rooster Teeth team recording live podcasts and hosting panels for its cult-favorite series.
“With DC at RTX, our fans will be able to experience all the amazing characters they love in one setting, from Batman and the Young Justice squad to RWBY and gen:LOCK,” Rooster Teeth co-founder and CEO Matt Hullum said in a statement. “Our brands are a great fit, and now that we are a part of the WarnerMedia family, we’ve been able to come together to create truly unique experiences for our passionate communities of fans.”
Other influencer guests slated to attend RTX this year include Olan Rogers, Philip DeFranco, SungWon ‘ProZD’ Cho, and Jessica Nigri.
