At San Diego Comic Con the Titans Official Trailer was released and I really like what I saw.
It looks very different, in a very good way. Is it going to be what everyone wants? Hell no but I think the show is taking smart risks to be a little different.
Love the looks of Robin, Hawk and Dove they just all look good. Raven is dark and spooky. Starfire looks crazy she is really bright and colorful which juxtaposes here against the darkness. I think what they did with Star Fire is fantastic. Brief glimpse of Beast Boy not sure about his look yet he could either look cheesey or be pretty dark and scary.
Hawk and Dove stick out in the trailer. The pair have been associated with the Titans in the comics but those that only know the Titans from the cartoon series may be curious about their presence. What I can say is they look really bad ass. So their inclusion here I think is going to be positive.
The series seems to be trying to have the super heroes, in costumes but also have a layer of darkness and maturity over it. Due to the darkness I think there will be Watchman comparisons but that is a critical knee jerk reaction. There are many places a dark Comic Book themed show can go beyond where Watchmen went. To me this show is really trying to be like the Gotham stories that have existed for a long time in DC comics. Its a big tent of characters and stories. I think its a cool niche and hope it works. The trailer is very promising.
Call me impressed!
So where are going to be able to see this show? Well that is the really the trick. Titans does not have a release date but it is going to be available exclusively on the DC Universe streaming platform. This platfom is going to come out in the fall and reportedly will cost 7.99 monthly and come out on iOS, Android devices as well as the TV streamers like Amazon Fire. That is a risky and competitive space right now.
Pictures from the series are below.
