DC Universe’s Titans has just dropped its first trailer and based on the first look it’s definitely not for young eyes and ears. The series is going to be a lot more violent and dark than what fans are used to seeing on The CW’s Arrowverse, that’s for sure. Titans follows a team of young superheroes led by Nightwing, formerly Batman’s right-hand man Robin, who come together to combat evil and other perils. To set the scene for what to expect from Titans, at one point in the trailer Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson/Nightwing says “F–k Batman.” Check out the trailer below!
Amongst some pretty gritty and graphic sounding fight scenes, the trailer offers some first looks at the other Titans including Minka Kelly’s Dawn Granger/Dove, Anna Diop’s Koriand’r/Starfire, Teagan Croft’s Raven, and Ryan Potter’s Gar Logan/Beast Boy. The series will be produced by Arrowverse juggernaut Greg Berlanti who also was part of the first season’s writing team. The pilot episode will be directed by Brad Anderson.
Titans will be released on DC’s new streaming service platform DC Universe, which also includes series such as Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Young Justice season 3, as well as a new Harley Quinn animated series and classic DC series of the past including Batman Beyond and Justice League. The service will become available later this Fall, but users can pre-order a subscription for a yearly membership fee of $74.99, or pay $7.99 a month.
Fans are already taking to Twitter to announce their excitement about the upcoming Titans series.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
