Live-Action TEEN TITANS Series In The Works With NIGHTWING Set As Lead

With Supergirl in development and about to be offered to networks, DC Comics and TNT are teaming for Titans, a new series which will see fan favourite character Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Nightwing) taking the lead of the superhero team know as the Teen Titans! Read on for details...


Deadline reports that DC Entertainment will continue to expand their small screen universe with the addition of Titans, a new cable series coming to TNT. As of right now, it's apparently awaiting the green light while the network makes some behind the scenes changes, but Academy Award winning writer Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) penned the pilot along with Marc Haimes (The Last Word). The site adds that, "Titans revolves around the eponymous group of young Super Heroes-to-be from the DC Universe. The action series centers on Dick Grayson (probably best known for his alter ego as Robin), who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new Super Heroes including Starfire, Raven and many others."

There had been rumours that Nightwing might appear in Arrow, not to mention talk of the character playing a pivotal role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It now seems reasonably safe to assume that Dick Grayson won't be showing up in either of those, but the fact that he's getting a leading role in his own TV series is still pretty exciting, wouldn't you agree? The fact that he'll be leading his own superhero team with characters like the ones mention above is also a pleasant surprise, but whether the focus will mainly be on him or the Teen Titans as a whole remains to be seen. Be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
