Geoff Johns talks about ‘Titans’
“I think the reason Teen Titans has been so great is it’s a surrogate family of superhumans,” Johns said in the magazine. “There are a lot of super hero television shows and films out there, and we wanted to do something different — something that would be in the spirit of what the Teen Titans first did in the ’80s, taking these different characters from different walks of life and having them crash together to become a surrogate family. Then from there it deviates drastically. We’re telling the story in a very different way.”Regarding Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson a.k.a. Robin, “he’s left Gotham City and he’s left Batman.” “He feels like he was made into a weapon and he’s trying to get away from [fighting crime]. Things draw him back in, and he’s struggling,” Johns explained. He also revealed that the series will tell a lot about the early journey of Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), a.k.a. Raven. Each member of the team will offer something special to this series.
With a potential 2019 release, the series will be written by Caroline Dries (who has done previous works on The Vampire Diaries, & Smallville), along Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter & Geoff Johns as executive producers. Official synopsis goes as followed... ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
It’s funny that a couple of days ago I was talking about Batwoman possibly getting a show, and here we are. 😂 Don’t get me wrong, Batwoman’s one of my favorite Bat Family members, and I’m excited for this either way! But before that, she’s set to appear in this year’s Arrowverse crossover. Now let hope they do this RIGHT (Plus add Bruce Wayne/Batman cameos), otherwise I’m gonna have to have a long talk with the CW president... 😒
