Titans (2018)

Recommended Posts

After at least a year of build-up, the first trailer for the live action Teen Titans show has finally arrived and it comes off like a massive middle finger to the source material and in general, the personalities of these characters. Starring Dick Grayson (aka Nightwing) as a recently separated from Batman - Robin, well if you want subtlety in his arc of not wanting to be like Batman, you aren't going to find it here. Unlike the Flash which stayed relatively accurate to the canon and spirit of the comic, or Arrow which had a different and interesting new take on Green Arrow, this show looks like it's going to be nothing but an absolute fucking trainwreck. The costumes and effects look absolutely terrible, the characters are shells of their former selves if Robin is anything to go by (considering here, he kills, swears and is full of angst), and in general, it just looks like an overly-edgy mess. I know I'm not holding my hopes high after seeing this trailer.

It’s kinda weird how we have these two extremes, and then Teen Titans original is that perfect middle ground of having humor and dark moments. And yeah the animated films which were more serious, but not on this fucking level. Like if they wanted serious, look at those movies for inspiration or something

A reminder that this was also made by the guy that wrote Batman and Robin. Akiva Goldsman

it's almost as if he got tired of being shit on for Batman and Robin being way too campy and when he got the job to write this he said "lmao i'll give ya'll a ''''''serious'''''' movie since you want that so much"

Oh fuck you. Akiva Goldsman is doing this?

He's the fucker that fucked up The Last Knight and worked on the shitty Rings and awful The Dark Tower. 

Yeah this is doomed from the getgo.

Why do these Hollywood fuckers keep getting jobs if they turn everything they touch into crap.

Looking at you Ehren Kruger.

Also Linkara's reaction. Cause if you don't already know the Titans are his favorite heros.

 

I feel so bad for Lewis. In the span of a few years he has seen his favourite group of superheroes being trashed everywhere: in the comics, in the cartoons, in the videogames (Injustice is absolutely savage with the Titans) and now with this.
Aside from the MCU and the new Spider-Man videogame, comic book superheroes are in a terrible spot at the moment, thank heavens My Hero Academia remembers how to do them.

Except Robin didn't kill anyone in that trailer! 

 

It's been confirmed too 👍

You might want to show your source for that info, makes it easier than trying to find it ourselves.

But still...I do find it hard to believe that he didn't kill anyone. The guy he chucked his pointy projectile thingy at, cut him in a way that his blood splatted out pretty far. Suggesting he cut an artery which is a very serious injury and it wouldn't take him long to bleed out. Plus the whole stomping on some guys neck with a loud crunch sound and that comical scream I've heard many times before...

If he didn't say "Fuck Batman" in some weak attempt to sound edgy, then maybe viewers wouldn't be so quick to think he's gone full blown Red Hood on everybody.

But that's my opinion.

I like to take this time and bring up the fact that they made Dove into a traveling murderer. Dove. If you don't know, shes the DCU's Avatar of Peace and she's magic. She'd fight but only ever as a last resort.

What the hell were they thinking with this?

Also I'm hearing that this ruined the current Titans run? It shifted tones to match this show, and they're operating out of a converted detention center. Huh.

I always wondered what a live action Teen Titans movie/show would be like. I always thought it would be awesome to have something like that.

I did not expect it to be like this, though. It's a huge disappointment, and it might just make Teen Titans Go look good. (I can't believe I just said that...)

I just hope we get a much better live action show/movie of Teen Titans in the future, even if it will take much longer than this.

Wow; this really feels like Batman vs Superman's younger brother. Despite dropping "Teen" from the title, it's pretty clear what demographic they're chasing here. Either that or they have no idea what they're doing. Probably both, actually.

That would explain things, wouldn't it? First they have a great animated series, then they do a 180 and make them too silly, and now too dark. Can't they make up their minds?
