These days, it seems damn near impossible to discuss the upcoming live action Titans series without touching on the costumes. On the one hand, the duds sported by young heroes like Robin or Hawk and Dove are the stuff of legend. But on the other, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire aren’t looking so great.
If anything, DC fans will be keeping a close eye on what comes out of San Diego Comic-Con this week, especially anything having to do with this particular series. In addition to a full trailer hopefully dropping, it’s about time Warner Bros. alleviate concerns about costuming.
Not helping matters was a leaked photo of the DC Universe offsite experience that made its rounds online earlier this week, which showed no improvement had been made upon what we saw via paparazzi pics a few months back. But on the plus side, those visiting the big event can get up close and personal with Robin’s costume, something that’s just been confirmed over on Twitter.
In the past, DC has been generous when it comes to displaying costumes on the showroom floor, so it is cool to see Dick Grayson’s threads free of any sort of color correction. Still, it makes you wonder why his cohorts’ gear isn’t being flaunted. I mean, we all probably know the answer, but it doesn’t hurt to play the optimist.
For more, be sure to check out the official synopsis for the series:
“Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and lovable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.”
The DC Universe streaming service – Titans included – is set to launch sometime this fall via iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV, in addition to offering online and mobile access. Will you be subscribing to it? Be sure to let us know in the usual place.
