Both IMDb and Toronto production charts are listing that Brad Anderson, the Machinist director who helmed The CW’s Frequency pilot last year, is set as the director of the upcoming Titans pilot for the still-untitled DC Comics streaming service.
Production charts also reveal that Titans is in the thick of pre-production with filming beginning November 14 and lasting through May 11. Hopefully that means we will find out who is playing Beast Boy sooner rather than later!
Titans, based on the DC Comics franchise of the same name, will star Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Lindsay Gort as Amy Rohrbach with appearances by Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that it will be premiering in 2018.
The website Season-Zero.com is alleging that TNT’s Titans might be going by a different title.
This new title they mentioned is “Blackbirds” – possibly referencing the bird-themed characters within – although, if you’re adapting a major brand, shouldn’t you use a name people know?
They mention the show will shoot in the Spring in Toronto. The Toronto part is consistent with what we have heard; the Spring part, we hadn’t heard before. Maybe the Starz project Blackbirds is shooting soon, which would put us back at the “no Titans updates” corner.
We’ve heard nothing confirming this and will take any news with a grain of salt until or unless the studio, the network, or the creative people involved confirm anything.
UPDATE: While we’ve heard nothing either way from the studio, Chris (@Comic_Canuck on Twitter) did some sleuthing and found that Starz has a project in development called “Blackbirds,” based on a novel. Chances are good that Season-Zero got their wires crossed. Nothing to see here!
It’s been a quiet time for those of us seeking news on Titans, with things like Lucifer, Supergirl, and the untitled Arrow/Flash spinoff seemingly taking more priority in the DCTV world. Continue reading
Barbara Gordon hangs out with the Titans?
Nerdist.com has supposedly gotten a hold of the Titans pilot script, and they have revealed which characters we will be seeing… including a few surprises. Now, we cannot verify if this report is accurate, but we can pass along what was said. You can read the full report HERE. But if this is true, who can we look forward to?
A Tweet from DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns confirms that a Titans pilot will indeed be filmed next year from TNT.
