Of course, no one is surprised that Mr. Johns listens to the 5Cast Podcast, where Garon and I discussed the idea of a Nightwing movie or series. So, you’re welcome, DC. Other reports show “Variety reports that TNT and Warner Bros. are close to a deal to produce a pilot for “Titans,” a one-hour drama based on the characters from the DC Comics team of the same name. The roster reportedly includes Dick Grayson, Starfire and Raven. Akiva Goldsman and Mark Haimes will executive produce. [SOURCE]”
The original Teen Titans had Robin, Kid Flash, Donna Troy, Speedy and Aqualad. There have already been murmurs that Wally West will appear at some point in The Flash CW series. Also, in the Arrow series, his kid sister (not a kid, and suuuuuper hot) is nicknamed Speedy. Will DC dominate the small screen while Marvel stakes out the silver? Stay tuned to find out!!
