Cape Town – The DC universe will explode onto DStv premium with a massive M-Net Movies pop-up channel.

The M-Net Movies DC Heroes pop-up channel (DStv 109) will kick off on Friday 9 November at 11:50 and continue for ten days until Sunday 18 November, shortly before midnight.

“DStv Premium customers can look forward to an astonishing selection of movies, most featuring a world in dire need of a hero or heroine with superpowers and an iron will to defeat evil,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard.

“You won’t find a channel with such a comprehensive list of DC Comics films anywhere else. Fans of superhero films are in for the thrill of a lifetime.”

Among the highlights on the M-Net Movies DC Comics pop-up channel, the last son of Krypton becomes Earth’s champion; a dark knight strikes fear into evildoers’ hearts; an Amazonian princess fights for justice; an intergalactic police force defends the universe with sheer willpower; and an antihero from the wild west is spurred on by revenge.
