Robin’s Team Forms An Alliance In New Titans Trailer


The debut of DC Universe’s first original series Titans is just around the corner and this final trailer does the job of ramping up the hype for the show that bit more. It showcases all four main members of the titular team – that’s Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) and Raven (Teagan Croft) – as well as making clear what the main threat of the first season will be.

It seems that Rachel Roth AKA Raven will be at the center of the plot, as the young teen discovers that she has dark, supernatural powers – powers that are being exploited by her mysterious demonic father who wishes to “scrub the flesh of this world clean.” DC fans will know that Raven’s father is the evil inter-dimensional demon Trigon, who should prove to be a tough villain for the Titans to best if he’s anything like his comics counterpart.

The trailer also makes it clear that the looming threat of Trigon is what brings the gang together, with Dick Grayson suggesting that this band of young superheroes form “an alliance” to stop him. Going by the gritty nature of the show, we’re not sure if the gang are ever going to call themselves Titans, but let’s hope they’ll become more of a unit as the series progresses.

Interestingly, this final teaser also focuses on just the four Titans rather than the supporting characters glimpsed in previous promos. For instance, Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly are expected to play important recurring roles as Hawk and Dove, more experienced superhero allies of the team, but they aren’t seen here at all. Also, it looks like we’ll have to wait until the show to see Curran Walters’ Jason Todd, Grayson’s replacement as Batman’s sidekick.

The 12-episode first season of Titans kicks off on October 12th, with a second season already ordered. Will you be tuning in? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment below.
