Its official….The Titans are growing up.
If you were expecting the upcoming Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s live-action “Titans” series, which is set to debut on the not yet launched DC Universe streaming service, was going to be just like the fun, teen Titans that so many young fans have grown to love…well think again, because if the trailer is any indication of what is to be the norm, this isn’t no kids show!
The trailer, which debuted this morning during the first day of San Diego Comic-Con, came with a TV-MA rating label, warning viewers of explicit language (coming from Robin, played by Brenton Thwaites, directed at the mention of Batman), adult themes, and violence, all of which should be kept in mind should you choose to check out the official trailer below.
“Titans” looks like it will be much darker, bloodier and more violent, matching what DC has done with its film franchise and not the norm for its hit shows, “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Black Lightning.” which viewers regularly watch on TV by way of the CW. Even though it looks darker, it does look like it is going to be another DC series hit to rival the above mentioned lighter shows.
We catch a glimpse of all of the Titans in the trailer. Robin/Dick Grayson and Raven (Teagan Croft) are the only two Titans that we see together. Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) is seen jumping on rooftops with glowing eyes. Starfire (Anna Diop) shows off her powers taking down some bad guys. Then we see Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Dove (Minka Kelly) get bloody in a brawl about halfway through the trailer.
There is still no announcement as to when this series will begin streaming, but “Titans” is expected to arrive sometime this fall. DC has announced pricing for its streaming app on the official DC Universe website. Fans can pay an annual fee of $74.99, or $7.99 monthly.
