    The writer of Batman & Robin is one of them.
    And the people currently behind the DCEU and the DCTVU.

    My question exactly.

    Holy hell, is this trying too hard. “**** Batman.” I don’t even know what to say. It’s like someone parodying Snyder’s movies, but somehow making it worse, so congrats in that regard I suppose.

    I'll help you with that:
    This makes All Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder look tame in comparison.

    Honestly, the "**** Batman." line is the last thing I'm worried about. Obviously Robin and Batman have some beef, and why is Robin not allowed to vent his frustration with some colorful language? But the excessive violence, Robin apparently straight up killing people, discount Raven and Beast Boy and stripper Starfire, those things I can't deal with.

    How's this even possible? I thought they were planning to course correct after the BvS backlash and now we're getting Teen Titans mixed with Watchmen.

    I don't think I've read any plot details. I've seen the disappointing images, but had no idea in which direction they were going to take the show.

    Anyone else willing to make fun of the "You were the kid in that circus, I need you to help me" line?

    This was disheartening. I see no distinguishable difference between this and what an unrestricted, "edgy", CW show would be like.

    I was hoping under the streaming service we'd get mature, adult-driven content. Something to rival the phenomenal TV shows that are out right now. Guess I'm moving on to HBO's Watchmen for that wish.

    This looks about as bad as I thought a Berlanti streaming show would look. Funny people bringing up Zack Snyder and forgetting who is actually behind this show.

    But will we get the never repetitive opening narration?

    I know. It just seems like such a dumb move to take the show in this stupid, edgelord direction, when all his others tread the line much better.

    Am disappoint.

    Robin looks fine. Is he Damian or Jason ?
    Raven is meh. As much as it sounds creepy, she was my crush back in Teen Titans.
    Beast Boy looks bad.
    StarBurn :funny:. I'm out of words.

    Did you not notice the obvious, literally in giant texts "Grayson's" in the trailer and the again, obvious allusions to losing his parents in the circus?

    It's a joke. I know he's Dick by name, but not by personality as far as I can tell from the trailer

    It's like watching a bad fan film aimed for DCEU edgelords.

    If it was Damian, I'd have no problem with the characterisation. But it's Dick.

    Edgy, dark, murdery dick.

    My only issue with the trailer is the killing done by characters who should not be killing
    I mean Robin okay he can be brutal at times if you are looking at a Jason Todd
    Dick though no brutal fighting style with him
    Dove no way should she be going for lethal takedowns that's a Hawk move
