The Teen Titans are Returning

In what is sure to be great news for many fans, the original Teen Titans are returning, but not exactly in the form you’d expect. While it’s still unclear of the capacity of the announcement, be it a new series, movie, or mini-series, Teen Titans vs. Teen Titans GO! is a real thing, as confirmed by Warner Bros. Animation.

The above trailer is said to be from next week’s Blu-ray and DVD release of Teen Titans GO! To the Movies, leaking online ahead of its release. What do you think of this idea? A good way to ease a new audience into the old team maybe?

That was actually a good twist involving Two-Face. It was Two-Face at all that killed the mysterious Karl Twist… it was Harvey Dent. The righteous man gone off the grid from his secondary personality. Now, with all of that, Two-Face is working with Batman and the GCPD to stop Kobra. We even got a small nod to The Silencer in there, with that mention of Leviathan. That was very cool.
AC
There’s something fishy about this entire Lois and Jon situation. I feel as if this isn’t going to be the real Lois Lane, or she’s been brainwashed by Jor-El or something. It’s strange. With that said, the looming threat of Ms. Goode at the Daily Planet creates an insane amount of tension every time her and Clark are around each other, now. Even after Batman took her kryptonite. That’s called good writing.
JLO
Once again, DC has thrown together an unlikely team of heroes, and given them pretty fantastic chemistry. While this team doesn’t quite have the chemistry of the Justice League Dark, they work well together in unique ways, and that’s awesome. Throw in a mysterious destiny regarding the Multiverse and it makes for a pretty incredible book, even though it’s only two issues in.
FL
This was a fast-moving issue that moved the Rogue’s in general further, with Trickster already reuniting with the original Trickster, and now Heat Wave losing his scars and remembering his old ways. Iris embraced her old memories, adn the Flash finally accepted his path. It looks like The Flash is destined to get back to its old, fun status quo, and that’s great. The real mystery now… who is Commander Cold?
SIL
For once in this book, it genuinely looked like Silencer was going to lose this fight while trapped in Quietus’ body, but through sheer luck of timing, she made it out alright. With her enemy in pieces on top of that. But unfortunately, her husband is getting closer to the truth of her double-life, and even worse, Talia Al-Ghul has been brought back to life… again.
TER
It was pretty obvious from the last issue that Doc Dread was Java, given his conniving dealings and attempts at stealing away Sapphire from Rex. Now, we have confirmation, and his plan has already been stopped by Tom Strong and the Terrifics, whom I honestly hope stick together for a while, as they seem to make a fun team, that acts as a nice throwback to the days of Doc Savage, and heroes of that ilk.
MMPR
This entire issue was more about building the story, and introducing new characters and ideas, and that’s completely fine. I was, admittedly, starting to get a bit lost with a lot of the new terminology, but it was instantly explained and implied what it all is, and that’s some great story-telling. I’m also glad that new “evil Ranger” turned out to not be evil after all, to avoid treading old paths. A new villain sounds like a good idea.

First Titans Trailer Hits

Beginning my bit of catch-up after attending SDCC, DC Universe has unveiled the first official trailer for the upcoming Titans series, and it’s a lot darker than any of us anticipated. Robin is shown killing thugs, and the effects look spotty at best. It’s possible that parts of this are still unfinished, but it still looks like quite the uphill battle.

Titans stars Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Dick Grayson/Robin, Teagan Croft (Home and Away) as Raven, Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand’r/Starfire, Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) & Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Hawk and Dove.

Warner Bros. Animation is slowly releasing the voice cast for its upcoming Teen Titans GO! To The Movies, and it’s Justice League is shaping up to be something special. Lil Yachty is set to play Green Lantern John Stewart, singer-songwriter Halsey will play Wonder Woman, and Nicolas Cage will finally get his chance to play Superman.

This is most certainly a ton of stunt-casting, but it’s going to make for one hell of a fun movie, which this is most certainly shaping up to be.

First Teen Titans GO! To The Movies Trailer

Warner Bros. Animation has released the first official trailer for the upcoming animated feature, Teen Titans GO! To The Movies, and it’s clearly going to be a hilarious shakedown of superhero film culture, that is way too meta. After the team jokes that no one wants to see them, they just want to see Wonder Woman, they then follow up with a joke about Aquaman getting a film, as well.

This is definitely going to be one to watch, as it’s quite a surprise for the year. Hopefully it remains a pleasant one.
