Teen Titans movie?

05.31.2007

We had heard rumors that Fox was looking to continue the X-MEN franchise by making a movie around the X-kids (Iceman, Pyro, Kitty Pryde, et al.) but it seems that Warner Bros. has beat them to the teen superhero punch. The studio is prepping TEEN TITANS based on the DC comic and the popular Cartoon Network series. The studio has brought in Mark Verheiden ("Battlestar Galactica," "Smallville") to write a script. It's unclear at this point what characters would be involved in the screen version of the Titans but versions past and present have included such characters as Robin, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Superboy (Robin/Nightwing is the only confirmation at this point). Before you get worried this version will skew to the teeny audience like ZOOM, producer Akiva Goldsman said to expect something more like BATMAN BEGINS. Why does everything have to be like BATMAN BEGINS? It was a great movie but the tone fit Batman perfectly. Would it be such a crime to have a light-hearted superhero comedy? Eventually there'll be a backlash if every single superhero movie is a dark, brooding drama.

Extra Tidbit: The "Teen Titans" series was cancelled in 2005 and despite fan protests, there are no plans to bring it back for another season.

I hope Aqualad ain't in the movie. He's lame of the lamest.

As long as it's not like the cartoon

The WB cartoon was horrible, with bad jokes, kiddy style, and it seemed like they were trying to copy childrens jap anime, which sucks anyway. I can't believe it was created by the people who created the DCAU (Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS, Justice League).

I agree with Estepapi. They need to put in Tim Drake (robin) and the rest of the gang. Fuck putting superboy or wondergirl in it. In case anyone dosent know the robin in the pic above is tim drake not dick grayson. But as long as they stay true to the team i am there opening day. And one more thing, I rather see teen titans before a jla movie because we never seen teen titans characters in movies before. We already seen batman and superman. This is going to be something great.

Can't Wait

If they do make this film then they need to have the exact characters shown right there in that poster...Robin not Nightwing...and I agree with the whole take place a little in the future as to not make it seem like Robin was never with Batman...and the villain better be Slade!

Nolan has said before that he has no interest whatsoever to have Robin in his Batman trilogy.

Yeah I'd much rather see a JLA movie out before this..but as long as we get one I can wait I guess.

I'm not really a fan of any of the depictions of Robin other than Jim Lee's in Hush. I mean, Batman is one of the more realistic heroes, and the idea of an 11 year old (That's how he looks in most) fighting crime ruins it. But make him like 17-19, and he's awesome. Nightwing was awesome in it too. I kinda wish Dick Grayson was introduced in Begins, so we'd have Nightwing in the future.

Yeah, I'm not so sure how they'll be handling Robin's origin myself, but hopefully it'll be properly taken care of.
Also, I'd rather see a Justice League movie than this, but... still cool news.

Considering that Nightwing/Robin is Batman's former sidekick, I wonder how they'll explain that on film. I suppose they could explicitly say that it takes place sometime in the future. I really hope that they don't try and change the origins, saying that THIS robin has nothing to do with batman (which I'm pretty sure they're going to end up doing).

Sounds good to me!

This is great news. I'd love to see a good Robin in action on the big screen, but if they can just keep him away from being a Batman-lite, and keep it more about Robin himself, like in his solo series.

I'm sure there was an article in an old issue of Wizard magazine that had a mock cast line-up of who (at the current time) would be a great actor/actress to play a Teen Titan role. I'll have to see if I still have it, but I still remember Seth Green as Beast Boy/Changling. Even if the film

Even if the film were to be more Batman Begins in tone, you still need a bit of comic relief, so let's hope for Beast Boy. And Seth would make a great Gar!

For Mullerlt

If you are defending fantastic four then...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I feel like im the only one on this site who actually thought fantastic four was a good fun superhero movie. I am so sick of people wanting every comic movie to be dark. Dont get me wrong, I love when comic movies are dark but if the characters arent dark like teen titans or ant-man then why would they be made into dark movies. I can see having a dark villian like slade(deathstroke) for teen titans but it dosent have to be like

Teen Titans Lets GO!!!!

Now this is FUCKING COOL!!!!!!!!! I have been wishing for a TEEN TITANS movie for years and finally its going to happen. I will stay glued to any news that comes out about this movie. Now if they can only update the news on the DOOM PATROL movie, I would be a happy camper.
