If you’re a fan of the Teen Titans comic or animated series, we suspect you’ll greet this news with a roar of approval.
If you read this site a lot you might already know this about me, but in the interest of full disclosure: I 100% absolutely adore everything about any possible variation of the Teen Titans and have been utterly enthralled with TITANS in its Rebirth incarnation.
Need proof? You can find my review of the first volume right here.
Holy casting news, Batman!
Pardon our excitement, but this new Titans casting announcement has got us pretty fired up.
Robin has said many times that Jon Kent, AKA Superboy, is too young for the Teen Titans. After all, he’s not technically a teen. Well, that’s getting pretty hard to buy into seeing how Robin is no longer one either. After their run-in with a mysterious trio of villains last month, Damian Wayne has found himself with a sudden case of the olds, and if he’s going to have any hope of reversing the clock and losing the liver spots, he’s going to need Superboy’s help. And maybe a good hip brace.
Fortunately, unless you’re also a half-demon, you’re free to get emotional about this news. Titans, the new live action series coming to DC’s digital streaming network, has cast its first member—Raven.
“When I look at you, I see the story in your eeeeyes…”
If that line has you scratching your head, then you have yet to be exposed to the greatest pop song in the known universe (at least according to Cyborg). We are, of course, talking about “The Night Begins to Shine” by B.E.R., a slice of ’80s-inspired electro-soul that is extremely well known to fans of Teen Titans Go!
