The first trailer for Titans has been released, which is a new DC universe project from Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV. If you thought the DC Cinematic Universe was dark, wait until you check out this trailer.
Let’s just say there’s plenty of violence, and even a “Fuck Batman” courtesy of Nightwing. I’m not fully in the know about the Titans, but I did at least see Nightwing, Raven, Beast Boy, and Starfire in live-action form. I’m intrigued if anything else.
Although, this show will be apart of a new DC subscription service, so it won’t be appearing on The CW with the other DC live-action shows. The DC Universe service is targeting a fall launch with pre-orders for one year starting at $74.99 – with an extra three months awarded for early sign-ups. Monthly memberships will be available at launch for $7.99 a month. The service is compatible with Apple and Android devices, Roku, and Amazon Fire, and slots in alongside Netflix, Hulu, or any other digital steaming app.
Who knows if this will be a roadblock for this show’s success, but if it’s great, DC fans will pay, so I think the success of this service and the show will depend on the quality factor and how fans react to it. The hardcores will sign up with no questions, but I think DC will need casuals like me to buy in too for this to be a success. Time will tell I guess.
Check out the trailer above.
