DC Universe has released character videos for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft), and we’re happy to see that if the early episodes are a bit on the overly dark side, there seems to be some levity to come. The Beast Boy video, in particular, is a lot of fun.
Titans is coming our way October 12, exclusively on the DC Universe subscription service.
DC has released some new Titans poster art in anticipation of the October 12 launch on DC Universe.
While obviously some artistic license is taken, check it out: Starfire is orange! Beast Boy is green! F— Batman!
All is right in the world; well, except that Starfire is still in that awful outfit with the fur coat.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy. The original series will be released weekly on the DC Universe platform beginning October 12.
In honor of Batman Day, DC Universe’s “DC Daily” show has released a special Titans preview clip on today’s installment — a clip featuring Robins Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) in action… and/or comparing notes on an elevator.
Best Robin Tim Drake sat this one out.
Dick Grayson is, of course, a part of Titans from the very first episode which will be released October 12 on the DC Universe app. We’ll be seeing Jason Todd later on in the first season, with there even being an episode called “Jason Todd!”
Details on how and where you can subscribe to DC Universe can be found here. You can see the new clip below!
The Chief of the DC Universe Doom Patrol series has been found.
Timothy Dalton of James Bond, Penny Dreadful, and Doctor Who fame is playing The Chief in the live-action DC Comics adaptation that is due to come to DC Universe in 2019.
Bruno Bichir was announced as playing the role for his first appearance in Titans; we are curious if those scenes will be reshot, or if we will pretend that’s just a different universe, even though April Bowlby is Rita Farr in both versions. For a time, Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, X-Men: The Last Stand) was rumored as being in the running for the Chief role.
THR broke the news this afternoon. Here’s how they describe his character:
A pioneer in medical science, searching the world over for those on the edge of death in need of a miracle. Brilliant but controversial, Dr. Caulder will stop at nothing to help those he believes are in need, including his collection of strange heroes known as the Doom Patrol.
The new cast gallery photos feature Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, and Anna Diop as Starfire. The photos were seen during the stream but here they are without tags! Enjoy!

Tonight during the DC Daily live stream, it was announced that the DC Universe service will be premiering on “Batman Day” – Saturday, September 15. And if that’s not enough… we now have a premiere date for Titans Season 1!
The live-action Titans series for DC Universe will make its debut Friday, October 12 — just around the same time other DC shows like The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning and Arrow will be premiering their new seasons on The CW. It’s going to be a busy week!
The show will get a special preview at New York Comic-Con on October 3.
Titans will roll out with one episode per week, every Friday, and there are 12 episodes in Season 1. And, of course, if you subscribe to the DC Universe service, there will be the ability to read classic Teen Titans comic book runs. You can subscribe to DC Universe at DCUniverse.com.
