Another Comic Book Flick Arrives: The Live-Action "Teen Titans"

by | June 1, 2007 | Comments

It’s not that big a surprise to learn that DC’s "Teen Titans" are coming to the big screen, nor that Akiva Goldsman is producing the flick. Doesn’t mean either thing is a good idea.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Goldsman and Warner Bros. are intent on bringing "Teen Titans" to the movies. "The Teen Titans first appeared in 1964 as a sort of junior Justice League, comprising Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy, the respective sidekicks of A-list heroes Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow."

Hired to adapt the screenplay is Mark Verheiden, writer of "Timecop," "The Mask," and several episodes of "Smallville" and "Battlestar Galactica." We’re assured that the character of "Nightwing" (aka the grown-up "Robin") will be in the movie, and also that it’ll be a "dark" hero movie, not unlike "Batman Begins." (This from the guy who wrote "Batman & Robin.")

Oh, and this will be a live-action adaptation — start casting your dream young Hollywood "Titans" now!
