At this point news has got around that TNT has picked up the rights to do a Teen Titans TV show which is being called Titans. We also know that Nightwing is the first confirmed character for the show. Now we know the rest of the team roster that will be along side Dick Greyson. First Barbara Gordon but she will be Oracle and not Batgirl and be acting as the teams informant. Hawk and Dove will be part of the team as well but not as brothers Don and Hank Hall. This Hawk and Dove will be the romantic pairing of Hank Hall and Dawn Granger and there will be a slight change to their character looks but the powers of order and chaos will stay remain. Fan favorite Raven will also be on the roster and is said to introduced at the end of the pilot episode. And last but not least Teen Titans mainstay Starfire will be part of the show and she is also said to be appearing at the end of the first episode.
Interestingly enough fan favorites Cyborg and Beast Boy were left off the roster. Also alternate members Superboy, Arsenal, Kid Flash and Wondergirl. Arsenal is tied up in Arrow, Cyborg is part of the Justice League movie, Beast Boy may be too complicated a character for TV and surely DC wants to keep all Wonders and Supers specifically for the big screen. And that doesn’t mean they won’t add characters later if the show is successful. Hopefully we will see more.
Stay tuned for more Titans news.
