Titans trailer


Television

Liberty's Edge

First trailer. Starfire looks nothing like the character.


oh god that was just aweful

Nightwing for some reason channelling Jason Todd
Dove...DOVE?! slashing people with wing blades and claws? I mean Hawk sure, but Dove?


That was pretty terrible. Starfire didn't look ANYTHING like Starfire, and yeah Nightwing/Robin channeling Jason Todd/Dark Knight Returns kind of Robin...And for a while there I thought Beast Boy was the son of the Joker.

This is going to be...not good.

To be fair, Starfire's appearance is probably the least horrible thing about that whole trailer

Reposting this from elsewhere, as it is totally this trailer:

TTG Gets Serious


Umm... no?


Yeah this is bad.

Love ttg parodies though. Their parody of young justice was HILARIOUS.


Honestly, I thought it wasn't too bad. Good enough that I'll watch more. I can see why some people wouldn't like it but it actually sorta works for me.


watched 3 episodes now. anyone else seen it yet?

Its Dark even for a DC series. I still can't figure out what there doing with starfire. The actress seems ok actually. She has that kind of amused aloofness that makes me think of Star but she should really change out of the Russian cocktail waitress costume.


I assume it's supposed to be the replacement for her comic version's space bikini - something that looks a bit slutty but are actual clothes in this world so it sorta fits in.


Hmm maybe. i also see why they only call it Titans (No teen) half the team is to old for it to be teen titans. Its weird that raven seems to be the youngest by quite a bit but robin is I think suppose to be in his mid 20's. maybe its the dress but Starfire seems like she could be in her 30s.


So is anyone else still watching this one?
I find I'm quite enjoying it, warts and all.

The last episode was really stupid.

They are making Dick hold onto the idiot ball with both hands. I mean he's the freaking Robin, not some stupid kid who's never seen a fight.
Also where are the acrobatics? Dude hasn't done a single flip. Let alone split.

The rest I like.


Its to dark for me. I'll continue watching but I won't be happy about it.

I hear you. Sadly, this seems to be his fate for most/all stuff beyond the comics. Nearly all the animated movies have Dick being an idiot who gets his arse kicked. He really needs a better agent.

I can sort of forgive the lack of acrobatics in the show, even if I would have liked to it. They have a budget and I'm pretty sure it would be hard to get an actor who is good enough and to choreograph the extra stunts.
We might end up with something like this if we were unlucky. ;)

I hear you xD. Never that.


Best episode yet. As a fan of languages and philology, it really pleased me to see that someone could recognize a language but wasn't perfectly fluent in it and they brought up that languages aren't always straightforward and easy to translate.
Plus Donna and her relationship with Dick were really well handled. It felt natural and like they really were old friends instead of hackneyed and artificial, which is what usually happens in these shows.
This really is my favorite live-action superhero show since Agent Carter (which wasn't really a superhero show) and Legion, on par with LoT.

Oh look, new trailer. LOOK AT MY GIRL DONNA. SHE LOOKS SO GOOD.


Donna does indeed look good. It took me a second to realize that Dick wasn't talking to Alfred...


I got the S1 DVD last week and bine watched it over the weekend. Overall it's not bad and I look forward to season 2.

The issues I did have are mostly nitpicks but I did find some of these fairly distracting:

Starfire's magenta hair; and to a lesser extent, her age relative to the others. (Anna Diop is 31 and looks it; Brandon Thwaites is 30 but can pass for early-mid 20's.)

I also wasn't crazy abut the amnesiac assassin business. Kind of felt like the writers had no idea what to do with her. I did like the actress; some less garish costume choices would probably have made me like the character more, but comics Starfire is problematic.

I appreciate the need to save on special effects, but still disappointed that Gar can only change into a tiger. Perhaps this will expand in S2?

I liked Hawk and Dove(I and II) very much. Great casting, nice backstories. My one problem with that is that as far as I could tell Don was killed after a single outing as Dove.

I was, let's say, unable to warm to Jason Todd, which I expect was the idea.

I'm really enjoying the second season. They seem to have learned from the first season's mistakes. The hair for both Raven and Starfire are better this year, and Donna having a much more active role in this season is great. Also Deathstroke > Trigon


I love Hawk and Dove.

I have a distinct preference for Hawk II and Dove II, however. Loved their team.


There's a Hawk II?

Yeah, not in the show (yet), but in comics Dawn's sister Holly becomes the second Hawk.


Cori,

Not sure how I feel about having Deathstroke be greater than Trigon...other than I think it's more appropriate since there's a lot of history there.


Hasn't their been like 4 sets of hawk and dove?

I'm not saying he's a greater threat, just a more interesting one, really. Trigon mostly just bores me, though it was nice to see his full demon form in the premiere.


To be fair, Trigon bores me too. But then again when my 'heroes' for villains in life are Thanos, Apocalypse, and Kang...it's kind of hard to get excited for a triple eyed demon...

As out of touch as I am, I'm only aware of one Hawk and two Doves, even in the comics. But when I asked about Hawk II, I only meant in the show.

Their has definitely been at least 3. Their was the brothers (Last name Hall) Then dove was replaced with Dawn, Then Dawn's sister holly took over has Hawk, Then their was Sasha and wiley who I think are the current set.

I always felt like their powers were kind of unimpressive considering they are granted to them by gods. That and being in the same universe as the justice league.

Trigon to me felt like DC trying to make a Galactus. all powerful world devouring entity with a herald that turns against him. Although he is kind of combined with Dormamu in some ways.


I always thought he was an attempt do to Dormammu mixed with some kind of space demon. But eh.


I never really thought him like either all that much. Raven and his links to her was always the interesting part to me. And that relationship and how it affects Raven didn't really seem close to any of the other characters mentioned. (I mean, there are hints of Clea/Dormammu, but only hints.)

But I really only read the original 80s Titans uses of him.


Look all I know is they should have started out with some other way to introduce Raven rather than go full bore with Daddy's coming.


...and some other way to introduce Kori rather than amnesiac assassin.

...and for that matter, although I'm okay with the notion of Dick leaving Gotham because he felt like he was becoming "too Batman", even Batman never put a batarang through someone's eye. (I mean, okay, that I know of. Obviously I haven't ready every issue of every Batman title.)
