First ‘Titans’ Trailer Is Laughably Gritty

First ‘Titans’ Trailer Is Laughably Gritty

So pretty much the inverse of Teen Titans Go then. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. While the MCU might be dominating the theaters right now, a new subscription service called "DC Universe" is launching later this year with all of the superhero content you could ask for.

The live-action adaptation of Teen Titans characters, like other successful TV shows that have come out of DC Universe, takes a darker turn than their comic or cartoon counterparts. The first trailer depicts Robin proclaiming, "F-ck Batman", to a group of threatened thugs while proceeding to give them potentially fatal injuries.

For $7.99/month or $74.99/year, DC Universe subscribers will get access to original programming, classic DC movies, an assortment of digital comics, and access to exclusive merchandise.

And now with the first official trailer for Titans having released, it looks as though those comparisons were apt. The series features Thwaites' Robin, Teagan Croft as Raven, Anna Diop as Starfire and Ryan Porter as Beast Boy.

Piece by piece, we're learning everything there is to know about DC's upcoming streaming service.

They're all attending "Hall of Heroes", a high school for superheroes.
