DC Entertainment’s new trailer for “Titans” is quite dark and brutal

The first trailer for “Titans”, which is also the first original scripted series for DC Entertainment’s brand new streaming service, DC Universe, was unveiled on Thursday. It showcases a rather a grim side of Dick Grayson, the former Robin.

The show is a darker take on DC’s superhero team, Teen Titans. The trailer introduces us to Raven (played by Teagan Croft), an emo girl who reaches out to detective Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) for help. Grayson is a former circus performer who lost his parents as a child and moonlights as Robin, Batman’s famed companion. In the trailer, there are also a few scenes of Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) and Starfire (Anna Diop) in action.

This isn’t even remotely childish as “Teen Titans Go!” was. Since the film has a grim dark setting, characters reflect about their own personal dark sides. The show looks as though it’s aiming for the same niche as CW’s Arrow and associated shows: a grounded and realistic take on the superhero franchise.

One interesting scene from the trailer is when Robin kills a bunch of criminals whilst saying “Fuck Batman.” Considering he was Batman’s trusted ally, this might imply some adversity between the two. Geoff Johns, writer and executive producer of the show have said about the quote on San Diego Comic Con in an interview with Polygon:

“The trailer shows a piece of the tone of the show — the show’s not all that, but it does make you go, ‘Why is he saying “Fuck Batman”?’ If you look at when Robin first left Batman in the comics, there was a lot of uneasiness and him being lost. Titans is really a series about these different characters that are all lost in their lives; just like the greatest comic book Titans run ever, by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, it’s about all these lost characters find one another. And they’re all struggling with something, and Robin is clearly struggling with his past with Batman.”

“Titans,” from Warner Bros. Television, is expected to premiere later this year, with two other WBTV live-action series, “Doom Patrol” and “Swamp Thing,” set to debut in 2019.
