We finally got confirmation that a live-action Teen Titans show will be coming to us in 2018. The show will be called Titans, and follow a young Dick Grayson as well as many other Titans. It’s not clear which other Titans from the animated series will be featured on the show, but Chief Creative Officer of D.C. Geoff Johns tweeted this,
Yes!! Very happy to be writing the Titans again and working with this crew! Extremely excited. Will be something very different… #BeastBoyhttps://t.co/D4sl3Gip7y
So it seems Johns will be working on the series along with many other writers who have worked on CW’s The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. Though unlike its CW counterparts, Titans will not premiere on television. TV Insider reports the show will stream on a DC direct-to-consumer branded digital service. It’s still unclear how much Titans will have to do with the Supergirl/Flash/Arrow universe, but it may be safe to say we’ll see some characters we’ve already come to know and love move over to the new show. A popular choice among fans is The Flash‘s Kid Flash/Wally West played by Keiynan Lonsdale.
There isn’t much word on what DC’s new streaming service will include or cost, but it seems like new and original content is already in the works. Another fan favorite series will also premiere its third season there, Young Justice. The outcry of fans has been heard, and now DC will be directly offering a new third season of Young Justice via its new streaming service.
Not sure when mention of Titans will begin to hit the CW DC-verse, but it might be a good time to keep your eyes open for clues on upcoming Titans characters. Something tells us a certain green shapeshifter may be eluded to at some point.
On March 21st we’re going to truly see if Barry Allen has quick feet. We will finally be able to gander with glee the highly anticipated Flash/Supergirl musical crossover episode!
Darren Criss (Glee, A Very Potter Musical) will take on the role of the Music Meister, a villain originally portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris in the Batman: Brave and The Bold animated series. As we no-so-subtlety eluded to earlier, fans of Glee will be elated with this very small cast reunion (Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist were also characters on the show.) According to Entertainment Weekly, our heroes will be trapped in an alternate reality where life is exactly like a movie music (probably chock full of La La Land references as well.)
The crossover is set to begin toward the end of the March 20th episode of Supergirl and run through the majority of March 22st’s episode of The Flash on The CW.
Supergirl season two will now premiere on the CW. This means there’s going to be a lot of changes to integrate the hero into the DC/CW TV universe. Casting Superman is the first big change we’re being introduced to so far.
Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) has been cast as our Clark Kent in Supergirl. No word yet on how frequently Superman will appear on the show, but it seems like our TV universe is expanding to the heavy hitters. I suppose we’ll have to wait until this Fall to see our new Superman in action.
The first season of Supergirl has had more than a rocky start over at CBS. With inconsistent ratings and mixed reviews it’s no surprise that the end of the season would also come with some big decisions. Many of us that watch Arrow, Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow on CW know that Supergirl would be a perfect addition to that cast of heroes. We saw how well Grant Gustin (The Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) work together in the fantastic crossover episode (pictured below), and cannot disagree that her and her team would work well in the CW-verse.
It’ll be exciting to see how Supergirl makes the transition and in what way will the shows we already love will crossover. Will she still be on a separate earth? Will there be a Supergirl of Earth One? What do you think? Let us know.
We’re just glad Supergirl wasn’t dropped all together and is making the logical move to a network that has an already flourishing and established DC TV universe.
