I’m not just all about the Marvel, people! I like DC stuff too! At least when they deliver good stuff! For example, I’m pretty excited by this trailer for the second season of Titans. I enjoyed the first season, especially all the awesome, live action Robin stuff. Season 2 seems to be taking us closer to Nightwing!
And, thankfully, we’ve got a Bruce Wayne for Dick Grayson to bounce off of. It was really frustrating when all of Dick Grayson’s seminal moments growing up were alone instead of with Bruce/Batman.
The new season starts on Sept. 6 — my birthday!
There’s also a new trailer for the Joker movie. I am less excited about this one.
As I’ve mentioned plenty of times before, I just don’t care about the Joker. And a movie about the Joker without Batman? I dunno…Granted, I’ll go see it opening day, because that’s the sort of person I am. But this trailer isn’t getting me too excited. Seems like just a crazy movie about a guy going crazy who happens to be the Joker.
But we’ll see! Maybe it’ll be really good. Joker arrives in theaters on Oct. 4.
The next DC animated movie is going to be Teen Titans Go! vs. the classic Teen Titans! The first trailer is here and it looks hilariously awesome!
I’m a huge fan of Teen Titans Go! I know a lot of classic Titans fans hate it, but nuts to them! Teen Titans Go! is hilarious and a lot of fun. And they know exactly how to get in their digs, which this entire movie seems to be about. I love when the show does that, and I hope to love what we’re going to see next!
A kickass, live action Robin? In an actual ongoing TV show? That pays respect to both the character and the legacy? How did it take me this long to finally watch Titans on the DC streaming service?! As a big fan of both the original Teen Titans cartoon, the newer Teen Titans Go! cartoon, and whatever is happening with the Young Justice cartoon, I knew I had to get on board with the darker, grittier, live action version too!
TV Show Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I remember that everybody was really unsure about this show when it was first revealed, with a Comic-Con trailer that really threw people for a loop. I was one of the skeptics, I’ll admit. Despite all of these superhero shows over the past many years, I still find it hard to believe that I live in a world where this is common. Where I could get a live action TV show starring a comics accurate Dick Grayson, with both an awesome modern Robin costume, and a complicated relationship with Batman. It doesn’t help that shows like Titans and Gotham continue to refuse to just make a show about Batman, so it’s not yet a perfect world. But this is a good start!
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on Titans! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the first season.
I am very excited for live action Robin on the new TV show Titans. So I’m also very excited to see this thing for myself. Well the first trailer has arrived to kick off San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s dark and brutal as all hell!
It’s like…how do we go for the complete opposite of Teen Titans Go! on every conceivable level? I think it’s a bold choice, and not one I’m very confident that DC can pull off.
But hey, it’s a serious, live action Robin, so you better believe I’m going to give it a chance! This sort of thing only comes around once in a generation! Hopefully DC doesn’t screw it up like they did with Chris O’Donnell.
Also in SDCC news from DC Comics, Grant Morrison is coming back to write a police procedural Green Lantern comic, and I near about blew my lid! That is, like, everything I could possibly want from Green Lantern comics. I’m really excited about this one!
I love Teen Titans Go! I loved the original cartoon, sure. But Teen Titans Go! is something truly special. I know a lot of people hate it, but man, those people are squaresville, daddy-o! This show is hilarious and is one of the best examples of trolling in television!
So bring on the movie!
Love it! Hilarious trailer! Can’t wait! Though as much as I love Will Arnett, they probably should have gotten someone other than the voice of LEGO Batman to do Slade. What happens if they want to do a crossover?!
