DC To Launch Streaming Service With Live-Action Titans Series And Return Of Young Justice

Get ready for a whole lot of Dick Grayson.

The New Teen Titans
Warner Bros.

The DC universe is getting yet another live-action TV show.

We already have Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow (together forming the Arrowverse), and iZombie on The CW, along with Fox's Gotham and Lucifer, and NBC's Powerless. There's also Krypton in the works at Syfy, and Black Lightning, which is headed to The CW.

Now we've got a new player in the game, as Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are launching their own streaming service next year. And to kick it off, they're planning a live-action Titans series.

It'll be overseen by Greg Berlanti (obvs), Geoff Johns (again, obviously), and Akiva Goldsman (ok, less obvious, but he does have previous with DC, albeit Batman Forever and Batman & Robin).

Titans will explore the hugely popular comic team the Teen Titans, a group of young, soon-to-be superheroes. Most excitingly it'll be led by Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadows to lead the group, which also includes Raven, Starfire, and others. Grayson is of course best known as Nightwing, who has his own live-action movie in the works too.

As well as Titans, the service will also be bringing back the cult animated series Young Justice for a third season, called Young Justice: Outsiders. According to the official synopsis, it'll see the young team (which also featured Dick Grayson, though no members have been confirmed yet for Season 3) tackle "meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy."

There's no confirmed release date on these yet, but both are expected to arrive in 2018.

NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
