    Teen Raven just got cast.

    Look for casting announcements soon for a late teens, possibly Asian Beast Boy.
    Starfire in her 20s
    Nightwing in his mid to late 20s,

    Not sure how this will go off. I can just imagine them nixing Nightwing/Robin, Kid Flash and Cyborg because of rights reasons. Hard to see them allowing it with the DC Television and Cinematic universes. Probably no Deathstroke either.

    Is it in the same continuity as the DC movies? Cause I think Cyborg is already his adult self in the Justice League, isn't he?

    If you can't have Teen Titans with Robin/Nightwing, then you can't have it at all.

    Kid Flash can be used if it's the white Wally West or Bart Allen. But then, Kid Flash isn't that important. Robin and Nightwing, it comes down to the producers of the Batman films. Cyborg is out because of the DC policy of having him be a Justice League founding member, over his role in the Teen Titans.

    My pitch for this (I’ve been pushing for it for nearly a year) was to revisit “The Judas Contract,” Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s defining story arc of the New Teen Titans. We were going to J.J. Abrams the thing in order to build a firewall around the original story–so it can never be retconned or ignored–while re-telling it with the post-Rebirth continuity. But the old continuity was just a mess. Cyborg was never a Titan. Starfire, Raven– it was terribly difficult to sort all of that out. My preference was to not bother; just show blocks of the original story with the original cast without explaining why Cyborg is now a founding member of the Justice League and never a Titan. As I see it, both DC and Marvel (but especially DC) wastes way too much time on process stories. I’m tired of reading process stories– stories that explain why this character is now wearing a red hat instead of a yellow one. Who cares. Entertain me. Comics fans aren’t idiots and, sadly, they aren’t kids anymore. Rather than go through the whole Rebirth thing, and what seems to be endless process stories being written ever since, I’d simply have had Batman turn to camera, breaking the fourth wall, and be honest with the DC comics fan: “We ****** up.” Now, on with our show. Comics should be Good Stories Well Told. That’s it. Personally, am not entertained by all of these comics that invest multi-issue story arcs explaining the red hat/yellow hat thing. I don’t care. I’m 56 years old, I understand things have changed. Somewhere along the way we’ve stopped entertaining and gotten morosely engaged with this continuity stuff. Continuity exists to serve the stories, not the other way around. Ultimately, because of the varying events both past and upcoming, it proved impossible to do the JJ thing, so editor Antone came up with the next best thing. “Lazarus…” walks right up to the Judas Contract and knocks on the door, but we don’t fully go there because, honestly, we couldn’t.

    --Christopher Preist, writer of Deathstroke.


    As to Deathstroke, I think he can be used because Superman's on "Supergirl" and has three movies with him in it. Plus, "Smallville" was on at the same time "Superman Returns" came about. Slade is back for "Arrow" season six. So he can be on both. Or if they want to be different, have Rose be Deathstroke/Ravager.

    No, your first post just states that they've cast Raven and that we should look for casting announcements. That's not a confirmation.

    Is this "Titans" show the same one that was suppose to be on TNT?

    Additionally, is it connected to the DCEU? I really haven't been paying much attention to this because it's only going to be available on a paid streaming service.

    1. Yes.

    2. No. Nor is it connected to the CW shows. And it'll eventually wind up on DVD and Blu-Ray.

    Brenton Thwaites has been cast as Dick Grayson. I think that's a pretty good choice for Robin.

    I doubt he'd start off as Nightwing, but that's just my assumption.

    This is the "Titans" TV series that was originally being developed for TNT a few years ago, so it should be Nightwing Dick Grayson.

    ‘Titans’ DC Comics Drama Dead At TNT – TCA (Jan. 2016)


    EDIT:

    I like this casting, but it might not be a good omen for the show as none of the TV series that Minka has starred in lasted longer than three seasons.

    Clearly it's her fault and not the fault of the showrunners to create an engaging series. :rolleyes:

    Close. The actor is 50% Japanese on his father's side and spent most of his childhood in Tokyo according to IMDb.com

    Ryan Potter cast as Beast Boy in the live-action TITANS series!
