RUMOR / SPOILER ALERT: The information in this article has been reported from an "inner source", and although the details are fairly specific, take it with a grain of salt. Besides, it is VERY SPOILER-Y. If you look into the first episode of DC Universe's Titans & # 39; you might want to go back.
It seems that some were fortunate to have seen the pilot episode of DC Universe's Titans, the live action flagship show, based on DC's "Teen Titans", which was the first original Creation that will be offered on the streaming service when it launches later this year. This information was published online on SplashReport in a more detailed manner, but here are some of the highlights.
- The pilot is related to an extremely reduced version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, focusing on the individual characters and developing them and their background stories before finally bringing them together as a team.
- The first episode focuses primarily on Dick Grayson / Robin, Rachel Roth / Raven and Starfire.
- Definitely NO live action version of & # 39; Teen Titans GO! & # 39 ;; The series is for adults only, with explicit language, including multiple uses of the S-word and the F-bomb. Then there is the extreme violence with "bone snapshots, people being shot, burned and mangled."
- Despite the dark color palette in Robin's costume, this show is not completely grounded as it seems Starfire is shown flying and hurling flame bolts. It includes his fantastic comic roots where needed.
- As we already knew, the pilot starts with a review of Dick's days as part of the Flying Grayson Circus Act. But when the spectators are presented to him in the present, he is a bitter loner. Whatever happened between Batman and him got him angry and isolated. He moved from Gotham to San Francisco, where he works as a police detective, but shows himself hostile to his colleagues. This Robin does not play well with others.
- Rachel Roth's mother Arella is an insomniac who struggles with her unique child. Rachel's neighbors and classmates are afraid of her and bully her. It seems that Rachel's fight at school is going to be an ongoing conspiracy, so she does not seem to be leaving the high school for a full-time superhero career.
- Raven is shown to have something that looks like a demon in her strength. She is also the target of the first villain of the series The Acolyte, whose actions set the main story in motion.
- When she is first introduced, Starfire escapes from a car accident in which the driver of the car is killed. She is on the run from armed men.
- She is a mystery woman, with numerous passports and the ability to speak many languages. (In the comics, Starfire can only learn a language by kissing someone who speaks it.)
- The various side platforms come together for the climax of the pilot, but there are no spoilers. However, there is obviously a "breathtaking" revelation.
I was a bit cautious with "Titans" because of the published images and some information that was revealed or leaked. But it sounds like the show itself is satisfying, but we'll see.
DC Universe is expected to hit the market in late August, but an exact release date for & # 39; Titans & # 39; has not been announced yet.
