Titans

Teen Titans Eyed For TNT

Per Deadline, Warner Bros. Television is developing a new live-action series for TNT based on the Teen Titans. Currently titled TITANS, the series will focus on Dick Grayson, the former Robin who will use his Nightwing persona on the show. Starfire and Raven are also mentioned in the article, but there is no official list of which other team members will be included.

One prominent Teen Titans member is Cyborg, a.k.a. Vic Stone, who is currently slated to appear in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. This puts him in DC cinematic universe territory, which may block the character’s inclusion on the show. From the same perspective, Nightwing taking the lead on this series could mean we won’t see him in movies anytime soon.
