13 Episode Commitment For Titans?

An article at Deadline about writer/producer Akiva Goldsman mentions the direct-to-the-DC-streaming-service Titans briefly. In doing so, a 13 episode commitment is mentioned; something we aren’t sure is out before.

Here is exactly what was said:

He also is teamed with Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti at Warner Bros on Titans, based on the DC Comics property Teen Titans revolving around Nightwing, Batman’s sidekick Dick Grayson after he goes off on his own. Goldsman co-write the pilot with Johns;  it has been set for a 13-episode commitment and will launch DC’s new digital platform.

13 episodes, eh? What does everyone want to see on Titans? Leave some comments below.

(Also, “Goldsman co-write the pilot with Johns?” Someone should hire some editors over there at Deadline… in any event, the typo remains as it originally was seen.)

Titans Live-Action Series: Character Breakdowns Surface

That Hashtag Show apparently has casting breakdowns for the four leads of the upcoming Titans show for DC’s streaming service. Of course, the character breakdowns have fake names, but we all know who they are. (If you don’t, John Crossland = Dick Grayson, Sarah = Raven, Casey = Starfire, Jax = Beast Boy).

Already this is sounding so much better than the first iteration of the project…

[John Crossland] Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD

[SARAH] Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends. Haunted by a dark force inside her, Sarah experiences violent episodes that she cannot understand or control. She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR

[Casey] Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR

[JAX] Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR
