The first trailer for Titans
, the first live-action take on the teen superhero team coming to the DC Universe
streaming service, was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and it promised a dark, gritty and R-rated interpretation of Robin and his band of adolescent vigilantes. In particular, we got glimpses of Raven, Starfire
, Beast Boy and Hawk and Dove. But they won’t be the only iconic DC comics characters making appearances.

/Lex Luthor thing — which we’ll get to [on Titans] eventually.
