It’s only available with a DC Universe streaming subscription, but plenty of people are enjoying Titans. Said to be a darker take on the Teen Titans, the show premiered on October 12, 2018, and features Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, and more.
Only seen as a dark vision by Raven and in flashbacks to Grayson’s childhood, the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne will become a recurring one it seems. Game of Thrones star Iain Glen has been cast in the role of an older, more grizzled Batman — or maybe just as Mr. Wayne.
“After decades of fighting crime as Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne is just as driven to protect Gotham from evil as he was in his prime. Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.” - Deadline
Wayne isn’t the only new face in season two. Esai Morales is going to be a Big Bad as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, a foe the Titans have faced in various other iterations. To prepare for season 2 or convincing ourselves to drop $75 a year on DC Universe, let’s revisit the Titanstrailer that was shown at Comic-Con in 2018, resulting in some derision. Fun!
