Teen "Titan" TV Series Will Die Before It Is Shown

Teen Titan A Bust
Avid DC and comic fans watch the new looks at the live-action Titans series last July, and, to this date, the reactions haven't been the greatest.

Now, it is important to note that these are just photos from the set and first trailer, and nobody has any context for when or where they take place within the story. Still, they are a far cry from the first official photos released for the show, which included stunning shots of Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Hawk (Alan Ritchson), and Minka Kelly (Dove).

That's understandable, as these aren't official photos, and the characters in question (Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire) will likely feature some special effects added in to help bring them to life.

Still, that isn't going to stop fans from offering initial reactions to the looks offered up thus far, and the response seems to be ALL negative. The common criticisms seem to include bad wigs, odd hair color choices, and cliched looks in general (mostly in Starfire's case).

"Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others."

Titans stars Brenton Thwaites (Dick Grayson/Robin), Teagan Croft (Raven), Anna Diop (Starfire/Koriand'r), Lindsey Gort (Amy Rohrbach), Minka Kelly (Dawn Granger/Dove), Ryan Potter (Beast Boy), Alan Ritchson (Hank Hall/Hawk), April Bowlby (Elasti-Girl), Jake Michaels (Cliff Steele), Seamus Dever, Bruno Bichir, and Dwain Murphy (Negative Man).

The series is being produced by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Akiva Goldsman - the same team that behind the DC Universe on The CW. Goldsman has written the script for Titans, and it's expected to premiere in 2018. It will be the first project to debut on DC's direct-to-consumer streaming service.
