The DC Universe Titans Trailer Is Almost Here!

Those at the Comic-Con International in San Diego today spotted some big news – a Titans trailer is finally headed our way!

The trailer is set to drop Thursday, July 19 at 6AM PT. Yes, you read that right; so all of us journalists on the West Coast are going to be up early!

Also at the DC Universe installation have been official first looks at Dick Grayson, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy. No, we are assuming those aren’t the final costumes. You can see photos of both below.

Geoff Johns Talks Titans

The Comic-Con special issue of TV Guide Magazine is now hitting newsstands, and in it, Geoff Johns talks a bit about what makes Titans so special.

“I think the reason Teen Titans has been so great is it’s a surrogate family of superhumans,” Johns said in the magazine. “There are a lot of super hero television shows and films out there, and we wanted to do something different — something that would be in the spirit of what the Teen Titans first did in the ’80s, taking these different characters from different walks of life and having them crash together to become a surrogate family. Then from there it deviates drastically. We’re telling the story in a very different way.”

Regarding Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson a.k.a. Robin, “he’s left Gotham City and he’s left Batman.”

“He feels like he was made into a weapon and he’s trying to get away from [fighting crime]. Things draw him back in, and he’s struggling,” Johns explained. He also revealed that the series will tell a lot about the early journey of Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), a.k.a. Raven.

“Rachel is very young. She’s 13 years old and manifesting some strange abilities,” Johns told TV Guide, noting some parallels between Bruce Wayne’s taking in of Dick Grayson and Dick’s interactions with Rachel.

Each member of the team will offer something special to this series.

“Rachel is a doorway to horror and the supernatural. Starfire is a doorwat to sci-fi, Beast Boy is a door to the Doom Patrol, and Robin’s a doorway to the vigilantes of the DC Universe,” Johns said, promising Titans is “more adult than any other DC superhero show by a pretty wide margin.”

“Each of the characters has individual arcs and storylines. It’s not a villain-of-the-week type of show. This is a 13-hour movie,” he said.

You can pick up the Comic-Con issue of TV Guide Magazine, complete with more quotes and details about the other DC Universe programs, this week at newsstands or at Comic-Con itself!

Titans is coming to the DC Universe platform later in 2018.

Titans: DC Universe Launch Date & New Photos

The DC Universe made some big announcements yesterday, many of which you can find on our general TV news site, KSiteTV, but even more than that… they released some new photos of Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans, including a full body shot!

Thwaites himself posted a photo on Instagram which you can find in the gallery below. In the photo, he mentioned “that’s a wrap on Titans” for Season 1… if that is a photo from the end of the season, does that imply Dick Grayson is Robin for the entire year?

Also announced is that Titans is due to come our way later this year! Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing will be headed our way in 2019.

Our apologies for not posting about this on TitansTV yesterday; there were some personal issues that kept webmaster Craig away from the computer for most of the afternoon. As always, though, the first place you can look for Titans information is our @TitansTV Twitter account.

Is Jason Todd Coming To DC’s Titans?

Unconfirmed reports say the title of the seventh episode of the live-action Titans for the DC streaming service may have a familiar name… “Jason Todd.”

For those who know DC Comics lore, Jason Todd was the second Robin who replaced Dick Grayson in the role. The character was killed off in 1988 as part of a fan call-in; eventually, he resurfaced as the Red Hood.

In any vent, if this title is true, this could be very cool news for fans of the DC Universe…

The title is one of several purported titles for the first seven episodes, which might imply episode-by-episode introductions of each Titan on a slow basis. Here are those titles (subject to change, of course):

#1.1 “Titans” (Pilot)
#1.2 “Hawk and Dove”
#1.3 “Starfire”
#1.4 “Rachel”
#1.5 “The Doom Patrol”
#1.6 “The Messenger”
#1.7 “Jason Todd”

We are assuming “The Messenger” is not a reference to Anna Diop’s old TV show. 😉

UPDATE: It appears that Jason Todd may be played by actor named Curran Walters!

Thanks to Andy for the tip!

Titans’ Brenton Thwaites Shares Another Robin Pic

Hot on the heels of the first reveal of the Robin costume earlier this week, actor Brenton Thwaites who is playing Robin a.k.a. Dick Grayson in the upcoming live-action Titans series shared another photo of him wearing the famous outfit on Instagram.

Titans is due in 2018 on the upcoming DC Comics streaming service.

“Here we go!!!
First fight scene with my R
Kicking ass in a downtown Gotham alleyway,” read Thwaites’ Instagram post.

Of course, the costume is pretty well covered underneath a coat, but it’s still nice to see more of the costume. (Fluffy top part clearly not part of the costume.) It’s also interesting to note that Thwaites mentioned “downtown Gotham” which we are assuming is a location in the first episode.

Will we see Robin only in flashbacks? Is he going to be Nightwing? So many questions still left to be answered as Titans filming goes on up in Toronto.

Hopefully we’ll have some more cast photos in the future.
