New Trailers for Teen Superhero TV Shows!

For reasons I will never fully understand, today we got two competing trailers for upcoming Teen Superhero TV shows, specifically Titans from DC and Runaways from Marvel!

First up is a new, extended look at Titans! I think it still looks pretty bad, though I’m going to keep an open mind, because we appear to have a legitimately cool, fleshed out, live action Robin story. Those come around once a generation.

Everybody else in the trailer looks really bad. I’m trying to keep an open mind about Starfire, but man she looks weird. And Beast Boy’s transformations are definitely straining everything about this show’s SFX budget.

Then we’ve got season 2 of Runaways, which doesn’t really show much. I enjoyed the first season well enough and am generally excited for more!

The current Runaways comic, from Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka, is currently amazing. If the show is half that good, we’re in for a treat.

  1. I always thought there was something wrong about Starfire (you know aside from not looking like the character) and I think I just found out what it is, her powers are wrong, she is supposed to throw concentrated bolts of UV light, not fire, it changes colors depending on the artist and sometimes it’s red or orange, but it’s closer to laser than flame.

    It’s like the writers didn’t read the comics, or even watched Teen Titans, saw the name “Starfire” and assume she must throw fire around instead of her actual bolts.
