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

Titans Filming May Start September 25 In Atlanta

Filming for the DC streaming service‘s Titans may be happening sooner than we all expected!

Industry website My Entertainment World is reporting a September 25 start date for Titans in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta was home to Constantine as well as the Black Lightning pilot and is quickly growing as a “go-to” place for these things, with newer state-of-the-art facilities and tax incentives. At our sister site XMenTV we’re even reporting a tip that the X-Men related series The Gifted will lens there.

DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns has recently Tweeted about his involvement with writing the Titans and has hinted that those developments may even involve Beast Boy who was not a part of the TNT Titans treatment. Johns is joined in the production by Akiva Goldsman as well as DCTV mainstays Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.

More information as it becomes available…

Geoff Johns Is Writing Some Titans Today

Fresh off the recent big news that Titans is back on as a thing that will be happening, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns Tweeted this morning that he’s spending his Friday writing some Titans.

“Enjoying an early Friday writing,” DC’s Chief Creative Officer posted.

Johns is arguably the best writer to have handled the Titans since the glory days of Marv Wolfman, George Perez, and Wolfman’s other collaborators, so this is very cool news to see.

In another Tweet about the Titans TV project being back on, Johns included the hashtag #BeastBoy. Hmm… Interestingly, we heard that Beast Boy was not among the plans when the show was at TNT, so this is cool.

 

DC Still Has Plans For Titans

TV Line caught up with DC Entertainment Chief Creative OFficer Geoff Johns at the TCA press tour a few weeks back, and what he had to say about the announcement that Titans was a no-go at TNT was posted on their site today.

“We [at DC] have known about [Turner nixing Titans] for months and months and months. That’s not new news to us,” Johns told TV Line, with some possibly good news: “We have plans for Titans,” Johns asserted. “It’s a huge piece of DC and we have plans.”

There are rumors that the Cyborg movie could become a Titans movie; could that be it? Or might Titans the TV series land somewhere else that won’t keep it in development for several years?

The @TitansWriters Twitter Feed Has Posted!

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!

Is Titans Now Called “Blackbirds?” (Answer: Most Likely No)

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!
