The upcoming DC Universe streaming subscription service has announced that the divisive Titans live-action adaptation will debut on October 12, 2018. That’s right. The Titans debut is just weeks away. The platform itself is set to launch September 15th, which is coincidentally also Batman Day.
Many skeptics will get their chance to ask the questions that need to be asked a few days ahead of the launch. On October 3rd, Titans will premiere as a part of the upcoming New York Comic Con. Following the premiere, the audience will be allowed to pepper the cast and producers about the show.
I’m sure the “Fuck Batman” that Robin mutters under his breath in the trailer will be of focus.
After the trailer was released, the internet and world lit itself ablaze with the controversial statement. Not only is this verbiage a dramatic departure from the Robin that we know and love, it shines a very dark light on what should be a lighthearted show.
With the DC Universe in limbo, the producers and writers are relying heavily on the success of the Titans debut. Fans shouldn’t be too worried, however. If DC has done a few things right, its creating small screen adaptations of its characters. Both The Flash and Arrow have run for many seasons and have a dedicated following.
I’m sure Titans will follow suit. With its success, DC will look to bring more of its properties to the small screen. Perhaps, this will lead to characters like Zatanna, Jonah Hex, Batwoman, and more getting some screen time?
The show will be the first of many shows to debut on the streaming service. It stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Anna Diop as Starfire and many more.
