Titans TV Series Roster Reveal
By Andrew Steinbeiser
02/02/2015


A leaked script from TNT’s Titans series has potentially revealed the lineup for the DC Comics television adaptation of the Teen Titans franchise.

Heading the team, unsurprisingly, will be Dick Grayson. According to the pilot’s script, Dick will begin the series as Robin following a recent split with Batman, but will eventually grow into the mantle of Nightwing as he did in the comics. Dick will set up the Titans’ shop in Boston, which is a departure from the Titans’ New York City roots.

Joining Dick from Gotham City will be Barbara Gordon. In this version, Barbara will be Oracle in everything but the name. According to Nerdist’s report on the script, Barbara will be in a wheel-chair and operate as the Titan’s information source, but she will not officially go by the Oracle moniker. This will be Barbara’s first time as a member of the Titans in any medium.

Next are Raven and Starfire, who have been anchoring member of the Titans since Marv Wolfman’s and George Perez’s New Teen Titans series. According to the script, Raven will carry the Rachel Roth alter-ego that Geoff Johns introduced during his run on the Teen Titans. The script didn’t provide any illuminating details on Starfire, other than that she wouldn’t appear until the Pilot’s finale.

Finally, Hawk and Dove will round out the Titans’ initial roster. Hawk will be Hank Hall and Dove will be Dawn Granger, the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths version. The report says that Hawk and Dove will be romantically involved with one another, as they were in the comics series.

Missing from the roster were other Titans stalwarts Beast Boy and Cyborg. While it's possible that they could join the series eventually, according to the report, their inclusion remains uncertain at this point. Beast Boy seems like an eventual possibility, but it's likely that Cyborg will remain off the table. Warner Bros. probably won't want contrasting versions between a television Cyborg and the big screen version that will appear in Zack Snyder's Justice League and solo Cyborg film.

Can't help but notice that the proposed starting roster is overwhelmingly female...also not sure about the inclusion of Hawk and Dove, though the rest sounds pretty promising.

So, uh...I guess this is still happening, even though it's been over two years since any substantial news on it has come out...? o_o

Breaking News: Titans TV Show Gets its Raven
By Tim Beedle Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Fortunately, unless you’re also a half-demon, you’re free to get emotional about this news. Titans, the new live action series coming to DC’s digital streaming network, has cast its first member—Raven.

Deadline announced today that actress Teagan Croft will be embodying the emotionally challenged young hero in her first live action appearance. Croft’s Raven is described as the daughter of a demon, and is a powerful empath who must keep her emotions in check or risk unleashing her demonic side.

Raven is the first casting announcement made for the eagerly anticipated Titans television series. Written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery), DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns (The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Titans will follow a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.

On the comics side, if you’re a fan of Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s iconic NEW TEEN TITANS, you know that it’s somewhat fitting that Raven is the first. In Wolfman and Perez’s iconic Titans run, it was Raven who reformed the Teen Titans to fight her demonic father after the Justice League refused to help.

While this will be the first time a live action Raven will be brought to the screen, we’ve seen an animated take on the character in both Teen Titans and the current Teen Titans Go! series on Cartoon Network, as well as in animated movies like Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. In those appearances, Raven is primarily known for her emotionless method of speaking and very dry humor. It remains to be seen whether Croft will take the same approach, or whether we’ll be seeing a different take on Raven when Titans debuts next year.
I guess it's unclear whether this is even connected to the previously announced series or not, as this will evidently be airing on DC's digital streaming service instead of TNT. But still...
