Though apparently at the moment it’s just going under the title “Titans.”
Akiva Goldsman is penning the show, which EW says will center on Dick Grayson (aka Batman’s erstwhile sidekick Robin, before he changed his name and costume to Nightwing) 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. Titans is a dramatic adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book titles ever.”
The show is said to be “nearing” a pilot order at cable network TNT.
If “Titans” does go forward, it would continue D.C. Comics’ streak of comic book characters hitting the small screen. Thanks to the success of “Arrow,” which spawn “The Flash” also at the CW, the publisher and their Warner Bros. TV partner have managed to set up the Batmanless Batman show “Gotham” at FOX, horror/supernatural show “Constantine” at NBC, and are currently developing a “Supergirl” drama.
In case you’re keeping tally at home, that now gives D.C. six possible TV shows, while rival Marvel only has two at the moment — “Agents of SHIELD” at ABC and the upcoming “Agent Carter,” also at ABC. Of course, Marvel is putting together an insanely impressive slate via online content provider Netflix with “Daredevil” and others, so it’s not like they’re lagging that far behind.
Basically, if you love comic books, you’re living in the Golden Age right now, fanboys. Between all the comic book movies on the big screen and now on the small screen, as well as online — hell, you crazy kids won’t ever have to go outside and play basketball again! It’ll be comic book shows/movies/web series 24-7!
