If at any point you were thinking that DC’s new Titans series wouldn’t be as dark and moody as the DCEU’s features – think again, because a newly-released trailer shows that laughs may be few and far between, as a grown Robin (Brenton Thwaites) says “F**k Batman.”
As an adult Boy Wonder steps out of the shadows, he steps up to form a team of young heroes – a few of which are revealed during trailer, including a pretty dark take on Raven (Teagan Croft), Starfire (Anna Diop), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) and even an incredibly brief look at Minka Kelly’s Dove.
Although Titans is coming from executive producer Greg Berlanti, it’s far darker in nature than anything else we’ve seen in the Arrowverse – so basically, if you thought Arrow takes itself too seriously, it looks like a sitcom compared to this.
While many have been looking forward to this gritty adaptation of the fan-favourite DC property, this trailer makes it seem as though they have fallen into old patterns of dark palettes and moody characters that haven’t been all that successful in the past.
Titans will debut when DC universe goes live in Fall 2018.
