Is Teen Titans The DCEU’s Secret Weapon?


Where Would Dick Fit In?

Get your mind out of the gutter. This is a serious concern here. If a Teen Titans film does happen, it won’t be the same without Dick Grayson. He needs to be in it. With Batman being older in the DCEU, chances are that Dick will be closer to 30 than 20, so he’s no longer a teen or a Robin. Sure, it would’ve been great to see the original team of him, Kid Flash, Aqualad, and Wonder Girl together, but it might just have to be a different incarnation.

What’s likely to happen here is that the former Boy Wonder will play a mentorship type of role in the group – like he does in the current DCAU films where Starfire is the leader – and guide the younger heroes. Maybe we might even see him take a younger Robin such as Tim Drake or even Damian *tt* Wayne under his wing. Whichever way it goes, it’ll be nice to see Dick pass the baton to one of his numerous successors.

Beast Boy Must Feature

Point at someone, anyone you see, and it’s likely they’ve been a member of the Titans at some point in their lives. The team rotates through members much like Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends in between albums. That’s okay, though, because it provides a wider selection of possible candidates for the film. Maybe we’ll get an older Titans group or a younger Teen Titans – Rebirth’s doing both right now, so there’s always that option, too.

One thing’s for sure: Garfield Logan, aka Beast Boy, must be feature in the film. He’s become the heart and soul of the team over the years and is ever-present in the group’s different iterations. His green appearance and shape-shifting powers will immediately endear him to the audience – both young and old – as will his witty and fun-loving personality. If the DC is looking for their own teenage Spider-Man-like figure for their universe, Gar’s the man.
