Titans - DC Universe [Streaming]

First look at Robin from the upcoming Titans series on DC's upcoming streaming service.

Quote:
We’re getting a first look at Titans star Brenton Thwaites suited up as Dick Grayson (aka Robin) in the upcoming DC superhero series from Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV

Written by Goldsman, DC Entertainment’s Johns and Berlanti, Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson (Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and others.

The Robin super suit was designed by renowned costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book, among others.

Titans is slated to premiere in 2018 as part of the inaugural slate of a new DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service

Set pics of Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy.
I guess expect official promo pics in the next day or 2 to try and deal with the negative reactions

Doom Patrol has just been announced as a spin off of Titans. The team will be introduced in episode five of Titans.
http://tvline.com/2018/05/14/doom-pa...iverse-titans/


Quote:
The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.

Well, could be the trailer but that looks horrendous. All the dreary 'grit' of the Synder films, with none of the pretension, yet an extra helping of TV cheese.

"F*ck batman"

Ooh, what an edgelord.

Thought the dialogue led to some interesting possibilities but yes the effects are poor and Beast Boy/Starfire look bad. hopefully this fixes itself with time.

I just hope DC haven't jumped into this service without having the financial clout to back it up.

Marvel have the advantage of being under the Disney umbrella, whose own streaming service (whenever that transpires) will be very enticing given the myriad of properties that'll be available aside from the MCU.

DC though, that service so far just looks ... thin. A scarcely loved live-action universe, peppered with animated features IIRC. Feels a much more niche proposition in a market quickly flooding.

Actually, do we even know if DC Universe will be available in Ireland?

Not even that, at least Marvel had the wherewithal to use Netflix as a partner to bring their small screen prestige projects to life.

DC have a good thing going with the CW to a lesser degree so I can understand their ambition to go solo, but only if the money is there.

One thing that is a no brainer is that they should partner up with someone like Netflix to bring their content across the pond.

Yup; it's still not clear what'll happen to Luke Cage et al when the Disney service starts up, but you'd have thought the smarter play for DC was to partner up with an existing Streaming service, be it Netflix, Amazon, whoever. Especially outside of America (as CBS has done with their new Star Trek, or CW with a plethora of their own shows).

Their confidence that there's an audience willing to shell out ANOTHER 6/7/8 quid a month for even less content than other services seems ... misplaced. I have been wondering who'll be the next Yahoo Screen in the great Streaming Wars.

I watched the trailer twice last night on YT. A show like Titans is catered for the adult audience which is portrayed at the opposite end of the comic book genre as opposed to the 2 animated shows; but this new version of Titans does seem to be lacking from a visual perspective. The amount of violence in it can put people off from seeing it on screen when the first episode of the series gets eventually aired on the service.

It would appear that DC are trying way too hard to be relevant with this trailer to date. It is not giving me reasonable levels of excitement when compared to a show like seeing Gotham or The Flash. We do see glimpses of Star Fire & Beast Boy along with most of the screen time devoted to both Robin & Raven.

The tone of this trailer is really dark which should be given with an ounce of caution for many fans out there. Shows like Titans must not be seen to fail if the visuals do not match up with the level of excitement for the fans when discussing dialogue. Many fans probably would not prefer to see shows that have too much of one thing compared with too much of the other when looking at visuals. They would prefer to see a balance within shows that makes them say Yeah I like this. The fans reactions of the trailers YT & probably elsewhere online did not like to see a show that was too dark with gritty tones. They preferred to see something that was a lot better than what the trailer had offered.

What DC needs to do with the show when talking about trailers & episodes of Titans is that they need to strike a right balance to make them more realistic to allow more people like the show. From where I am standing now; is does appear that Titans is a show to be at the complete opposite of what it is being asked to do. And that is not good if it is being offered to be too dark.
