    At the same time, seeing as how much care is put in the Robin and Hawk/Dove costume, that VFX scan of Anna Diop: https://twitter.com/TheAnnaDiop/status/918528954801168384/video/1, it seems like they know what they are doing. It seems there is going to be more than meets the eye. I'm just waiting until the trailer before I throw any criticisms yet.

    Last I heard no, but it could be a surprise.

    He's part of the Doom Patrol spin off.

    I, too, am waiting for the trailer before passing final judgement.

    And yet the pictures they show us are not impressive and if they are not indicative of how they will look in the series, why show those particular images at all in an official capacity?

    Undersell to overperform.
    I just now found out about who the pilot ep's director is.

    If they are intending to undersell it they are doing a bang up job.

    Do we know if Starfire is getting orange skin at some point?

    You would think, but it's very discouraging.

    I'm worried about the overly gritty aesthetic honestly. With the Titans it's just not necessary.

    Everything DC needs to be gritty because it worked for Batman. Nevermind it did not work for Superman or Batman vs Superman or Justice League. Wonder Woman was an anomaly (it only had a bit of grit). We need more grit! :o

    I don't think, that was grit that was BvS and Man of Steel (I wouldn't call Justice League, gritty more like a mismanaged mess), more like poor storytelling, not enough character moments/development.



    Reading Marv Wolfman NTT comics and Geoff Johns run among other, the OG Teen Titans comics dealt with some pretty adult themes alongside the humor and lighthearted moments. This could actually be a pretty good fit for Titans, if done right.

    So Robin is going to be the only costumed hero on this team?

    The only thing they changed about Starfire was her dress.

    out of the main 4, I think Robin will be the only one with a costume from the start. since he's already established as a crime fighter/vigilante.

    I'd imagine the others will get proper costumes as the show progresses and the team actually becomes a team.

    and, tbh, seeing the pics up close now, I'm less bothered by them. Even Starfire isn't as bad, though I still dislike her hairdo.

    I wonder, though, will Star and BB ever display orange/green skin? I'm hoping those above pics just show their "civilian" looks to blend in, but in battle, their skin color changes to the proper color.

    And the lighting changed her skin color. Honestly, the only things left is that hairdo and to ditch the furcoat.

    Okay, yeah. Starfire’s wig is awful and there’s no point in adapting Beast Boy if you aren’t going to make him green.

    I hope there’s more to it than what we’ve so far seen, but it looks like they may have dropped the ball on those two.

    I just heard a rumor that a trailer will be shown to us at 6am tomorrow!


    If true, I won't sleep.

    So Geoff Johns revealed a little more Titans TV show:
    http://titanstv.net/geoff-johns-talks-titans/

    It feels like they are mixing New Teen Titans, Geoff Johns run and Daredevil in one. Can't wait to see what the trailer shows.

    "It's not a villian-of-the-week type of show. This is a 13-hour movie."

    Only thing that bothers me visually is Starfire's ratty fur coat ,Beast Boy only having green hair, and Raven having a somewhat soft and warm look, to me. Saying that though, I'll definitely give the show a shot.
