DC Universe Drops First ‘Titans’ Trailer at SDCC
Be ready DC fans, this isn’t a fan made trailer… this is what DC and WB are selling the world with their new DC Universe streaming service.
Titans, a live-action take on the Teen Titans, is anything but what we’ve been seeing on Cartoon Network over the years. It’s gritty, dark, and mature; just like everything else live-action DC has given us as of late.
The teaser trailer introduces us to the entire team of Titans, including Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Raven (Teagan Croft), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), and Starfire (Anna Diop).
I can’t even begin to list the problems I have with this trailer and the Titans concept overall. But just one view of the trailer and you’ll quickly learn that there is hardly any crossover to being inline with what you can find in the DC Comics. The only promising factor of this debut, is we were offered up more information on the upcoming DC Universe streaming service.
Speaking to a group of reporters during a demo of DC Universe, DC Entertainment Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee said that the 10-episode first season of Titans would launch with the service. From there, the goal is to debut a new episode of original content–Young Justice: Outsiders, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, etc.–every week, 52 weeks a year.
Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think about the upcoming series in the comments below.
