Though we still aren’t sure if it’s been actually confirmed that they’re legit, a Tweet finally came from the @TitansWriters Twitter feed today. Here’s what they posted – a simple picture of Nightwing:
On a Twitter note, if you’re not following our own Titans twitter account @TitansTV already… you should be!
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!
All we know about Titans at this point is that the pilot is shooting next year, and that it is expected for it to include Nightwing as well as some DC Comics Titans favorites like Starfire and Raven.
The hope is that TNT likes it, and makes a series out of it.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our own casting suggestions, and you’re all welcomed to leave some of your own in the comments section. As we don’t know for sure which characters will be present, or what ages they are even looking for, this could be completely off from what we ultimately end up getting, if we see anything at all.
