  • A ‘Teen Titans’ live-action movie is planned for DC Studios.
  • Ana Nogueira has been hired to write the script.
  • We can expect to see the likes of Robin, Kid Flash and more hit screens.

While none of the movies or TV shows in the big announcement made by James Gunn and Peter Safran, the filmmaker/producer duo who run the current incarnation of DC Studios for Warner Bros., have arrived yet (the 'Creature Commandoes' are on their way to TV screens while Gunn’s ‘Superman’ will launch the big screen reboot next year), we’re already to the point where new projects are being, if not officially confirmed, then reported on.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Teen Titans are headed to theaters in live-action form.

The characters, usually sidekicks to main heroes, have been a team in DC Comics since their first appearance together in ‘The Brave and the Bold’ title in 1964. Created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, the group has naturally been through different evolutions in their time (they are comic book characters, after all), but the group usually includes some version of Robin (often Damien Wayne), Kid Flash (Wally West), Aqualad as well as Wonder Girl. Other teens such as Speedy, the sidekick to Green Arrow, and Raven joined the adventures later.

They went through a big change in the 1980s, when they started to become much more popular. But they have exploded in status in the last couple of decades mostly thanks to their TV adaptations. ‘Teen Titans Go!’ the animated, comedic and frequently meta take on DC has run for eight seasons on Cartoon Network, airing close to 400 episodes. The series also spawned a feature film, ‘Teen Titans Go! To the Movies’, which was released in theaters in July 2018

And then there’s ‘Titans’, the darker, moodier live-action series that launched in 2018 on DC’s short-lived digital arm DC Universe, before moving to Max and running for four seasons.

The movie is still at far too early a stage for casting to be revealed or even considered. But we can at least hope that a couple of voices/faces from the various TV incarnations at least get to cameo or are referenced in the movie.

And the plan truly is for DC Studios movies to be connected, could we see a brief appearance from whoever ends up playing Batman, set to be introduced in the ‘Brave and the Bold’ adaptation? Wishful thinking, perhaps…

So far, the only people involved are Gunn and Safran, who will produce the new movie.

They, in turn, have recruited writer Ana Nogueira to write the script for the new movie. Nogueira, who kicked off her career acting in the likes of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Michael J. Fox Show’, has been scoring some big writing jobs of late, including the screenplay for ‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’, which will star Milly Alcock as Kara Zor-El.
