    I actually like the look of Beast Boy. I just hope he's green all the time and not that he will only have green skin in a couple of episodes but will have green hair throughout the show... that would be lame.

    If you pan over slightly to the right in the Robin photo, you'll find Bruce beating up a swarm of henchmen.

    I'm not gonna write this show off yet like everyone else. I didnt hate the trailer nor am I against a grittier tone. Though i do think they went too far with it in the trailers. I'd like to think that this is more representative of the first couple of episodes in an attempt to shock the viewers/pull them in. I think the season will end in a different place than the beginning.

    I'm still open minded but I will have low expectations due to the promo that we have received. I hope the show proves many people wrong and actually turns out to be decent.

    That's one way to think of it. Set the bar low so it is easier to impress people when they watch it.

    So edgyyy. It's crazy how we have Teen Titans Go To The Movies and then we have this :hehe:

    Can we get some balance please.

    I think DC really missed the mark by not making a Teen Titans live action movie (with a proper tone and production values) instead of this show. I can almost guarantee you a Teen Titans movie would have been a big success.

    Instead WB gives us this version of Titans and makes a girl gang Harley Quinn movie.

    I think DC wants to try to corner the "dark, edgy" fanbase at the expense of the majority of it which is just fine with things not being so dour all the time.

    I kinda like these posters. Some might say they look like early DeviantArt stuff, which I can see how that point of view was generated. I think they mix that and look like they come from the main menu stills of an Arkham game, Arkham Origins to be most precise.

    Its funny because since this trailer, all I see people saying is "why is everything DC so dark?" I think BvS really colored everyone's opinion on DC as a whole because when you look at their TV output vast majority of it is actually light and fluffy. The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow are all very light and bright in tone to the point where they're overly cheesy sometimes. Gotham balances dark and gritty with camp, I haven't watched Krypton but it doesnt look very dark and gritty to me, more like adventure sci-fi. Arrow's the only DC show that maintains a dark and gritty vibe to it but its in the show's DNA at this point. And hey, I'll bet there were a ton of Green Arrow fans pissed about the approach the show was taking with Oliver Queen at first but then look how the show won them over with the story they were telling (at least in the first few seasons) lol.

    Krypton is good, not great but it really surpassed low expectations I had for that show, but every time I look at Titans, I become less interested.

    WB missed the golden opportunity to bring Doom Patrol to big screen too.

    Dunno, fellas... I still want to try to watch this. The trailer was try-hard edgy, but who knows. I like the main cast and I want to give them a chance.

    everything looks good in those new set photos.

    ......except Starfire. Once again, she's the outlier. Not only in how she looks with that god-awful party wig, but also in how everyone else looks pretty much recognizable and on point, except Starfire. It's just so headscratchingly curious as to why they made her deviate so much for her recognizable look.

    maybe there's some grand explanation. maybe that really is a party wig. idk.

    still gonna give it a try. However, I must admit, my interest and confidence in this has waned somewhat. especially after learning that DC streaming will also feature a Stargirl series and reading up on what they want that character to represent. Not to mention a possible Supergirl film coming up and maybe even a rebooted Superman ( as long as no MBJ as Superman...... ).

    I guess I'm yearning for things that are bright and optimistic. not all this f*** grim dark stuff.

    since Dick and Jason are wearing so similar Robin costumes, I predict by the end of Season 1, Dick will fashion himself a Nightwing costume.

    Their costumes look identical (it’s hard to tell), which is disappointing. I much prefer individualized costumes for the Robins.

    I do like the idea of them overlapping as Robin.

    I'm fine with that. Dick and Jason looked identical (and were basically the same character for a while) in the comics. Tim got the cool Robin costume.

    Makes me think of The Defenders with DD being the only one in an actual suit.

    Damn not gonna lie this looks pretty bad. The costume design is just awful. They shouldn’t have been so afraid to embrace the silliness of the comics.

    Beast Boy should be green. Period.
    Raven’s wig is awful and the actress can’t pull off the goth look
    Starfire... do I really have to explain why she looks horrible?
