CBTVB: Warners Bros to Use Digital Services to Expand the Titans Brand

By Muuka Muyumba

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are working to establish a live-action Teen Titans series along with the reintroduction of the animated Titans series Young Justice on a new digital streaming services in 2018. The service has yet to get a new, but its appears to be a big first step for WB and DC Entertainment to expand their online content. Currently, their roster of CW shows can be viewed on CW Seed or Netflix, but WB/DC appears to be trying to establish its own subscription service.

DC/CW maven Greg Berlanti, Oscar-winner Akiva Goldsman, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns, and Supergirl producer Sarah Schechter are all are all slated to work on the live-action series ‘Titans’, which will debut in 2018.

Titans was once in development with tnt, but failed to pick up any steam at that channel without Berlanti’s involvement. This version of the story is said to follow “…a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. 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.”

Young Justice was the little-animated-show-that-could that sat in between the earlier animated Teen Titans cartoon with a serious tone, and the current sillier version of the Teen Titans Go!. Young Justice was a similarly serious take on the young DC heroes, but a team made up mostly of sidekicks. Young Justice was loved by its audience and revered by critics, but was not a hit that Cartoon Network could rely on on a consistent basis. The show ran for 2 seasons and got new life on Netflix with a feverish social media campaign clamouring for a 3rd season.

Season 3 of the series is now entitled Young Justice: Outsiders and centers on the teenage superheroes of the DC Universe getting a chance to spar with DC villains after they were entrusted with a seat on the Justice League council at the end of season 2.

From DCComics.com: “In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, “Young Justice” reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.”

Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!,” “Justice League Action”) is executive producer of “Young Justice.” Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Superman Doomsday”) and Greg Weisman (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gargoyles”) are producers of the series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Emmy Award winner Phil Bourassa (“Young Justice,” “Justice League Dark,” “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”) serves as the series’ art director.

Both series are in earlier development and set to hit the direct-to-consumer digital service in 2018.
