Timing feels wrong for a Teen Titans movie

2194230_55a59581d8.jpgThe Hollywood Reporter say that a Teen Titans movie is being developed over at Warner Brothers. With this movie, a Justice League movie and an Avengers movie in the works, doesn't this feel a little to much? A couple more years of individual superhero movies and the audience might be ready for this type of team-up but not now. Let's bring The Green Arrow and The Flash to the big screen first before we get a Justice League or Teen Titans movie. Akiva Goldmsman the writer of BATMAN AND ROBIN is producing the movie alongside Kerry Foster with Smallville writer Mark Verheiden on board to scribe. The movie will be a live-action one. For those who don't know the difference... Justice League is for the established superheroes to fight crime and the Teen Titans are usually for their sidekicks.
The Teen Titans first appeared in 1964 as a sort of junior Justice League, comprising Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy, the respective sidekicks of A-list heroes Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow. The comic series reached X-Men-style success in the 1980s, when the team was relaunched in a new comic with the characters no longer kids but college-age adults and the stories explored more mature themes. The series also saw the addition of Cyborg, Starfire and Raven, original characters who weren't sidekicks, while the character of Robin matured into one called Nightwing.
It seems to me that Marvel and DC are going head-to-head to see who can get a superhero team-up movie under way first. I'm not sure any of us are ready for it yet, although to be fair will a "teen superhero team-up movie" ever get you excited?
