The mock announcement pokes fun at the rebranding of HBO Max, which is set to dial down production of original content to include Discovery+ and focus on theatrical productions. But what would it be called? It’s a platform that had already been rebranded twice, being called HBO Go and HBO Now before Max served as a global title. As his name is coming to an end, boys HBO is making fun of HBO by announcing Watt++, a streaming platform that incorporates tons of other streaming services for plus-plus fun (at a high price) at the comfort of your home.
And that’s not all: The post contains several Easter egg-like jokes that the more you read, the harder you’ll laugh, including a cheap shot taken on the short-lived streaming platform CNN+ (which was published by HBO Discovery for barely weeks). was closed until) after its launch), a construction reality series that is clearly a parody property brothersAnd, of course, a ton in terms of the major superhero content that’s often used to attract new customers.
the joke totally works boys‘ The biggest characters are very clearly satires of DC’s most iconic superheroes. In the main cast alone, Homelander (Anthony Starr), Rani Meo (Dominic McElligott), a rail (Jesse T. Usher), and The Deep (Chace CrawfordEasy to connect with Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman. These are all heroes (and big money-makers) who are caught in the crossfire of what’s going on with HBO Discovery and Warner Bros., as the biggest course correction announced by the new CEO. David Zaslav Have to scrap the Snyderverse – aka forget it’s like movies Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice And man of Steel exists and is starting with a 10-year plan like the Marvel Cinematic Universe which will reportedly bring back Rs.
An additional layer of fun is the fact that, in boys’ Universe, Watt is a large company that does whatever is necessary to maintain profits, and this includes making unpopular decisions, turning away important players for ridiculous reasons, and without really caring about the public. Making only flat-out changes is involved. There is going to be an opinion. Not that HBO Max Discovery++ Now is doing that, no…
You . You can stream all three seasons of boys on Prime Video.
