Back in September 2014, TNT announced the development of Titans, a live-action superhero series based on the DC Comics title Teen Titans. The initial report revealed that the series would center on Batman side-kick Dick Grayson (aka Robin) who emerges from the shadows of The Dark Knight as Nightwing to lead his own fearless band of superheroes, which may have included Starfire and Raven. We haven't heard a whole lot about the development of this show lately, and as it turns out, that was for a good reason. Deadline reports that the network has decided to not move forward with the project. Here's what TNT president Kevin Reilly had to say in a statement.
"We decided it wasn't where we wanted to go."
While fans of DC Comics properties are certainly enjoying an embarrassment of riches when it comes to seeing their favorite heroes dominate the small screen, sometimes disappointment abounds. We now have word that TNT has chosen not to move forward with the live action Titans TV series. As unfortunate as the news is, it should not come as too much of a shock since it has been nearly a year since any real news has been reported regarding the ill fated series.
It seemed the network was originally enthused about proceeding with the series’ development when TNT president Kevin Reilly told TV Line the following last May:
“I think it’s going to end up being a very, very interesting offering. I think it’s going to be excellent.”
More recently, Reilly said these heartbreaking words at TCA:
“We decided it wasn’t where we wanted to go.”
Had the series come to fruition, »
