Teen Titans Live Action Movie… Before Justice League?

toon teen titans Teen Titans Live Action Movie... Before Justice League?Warner Brothers has indicated that they’re moving forward with a live action Teen Titans film for the big screen. I’m not really into them myself although I understand the animated series is very popular.

The first thing that popped into my head when I read the news was “Why this instead of Justice League?” The only reason I can think that the studio is moving forward with this while a Justice League movie languishes undeveloped is that it will be easier to get this one made due to franchise/studio commitments with such major and well known characters.


Producer Akiva Goldsman stated that the tone of the movie will be consistent with such recent WB movies as Batman Begins, Superman Returns and the upcoming Watchmen. That’s a pretty interesting statement since all three of these films have wildly different styles. icon smile Teen Titans Live Action Movie... Before Justice League? I guess what he means is that they’ll be giving it a “realistic” treatment instead of making it campy? Then again what recent superhero movies have NOT treated their subject matter seriously?

Mark Verheiden is writing the screenplay. His prior writing gigs include Smallville and Battlestar Galactica, so maybe we’re in for a good story?

I’d still rather see a full blown Justice League movie, but I’ll probably have grandkids by the time that one gets made…

  1. It’s in development, developing and making are differnet things. So, It might get made before Justice League, then again it could stay in development hell.

    • could this be a joke, hope it’s not.
      # hit-girl wishes she was robin #roast.

    • why not do it?

    • teen titans will possibly go into theaters but there should definitely be a legion of superheroes movie because it can be said that it would be very successful and people would flock to theaters to see it.but right now it seems that DC is transitioning too slowly and that they just can’t gain any traction at all.

    • life and times of juniper lee live action movie.

    • when is teen titans going to happen, probably not any time soon but it will eventually happen maybe and when it does maybe someone will pat DC on the back and good job, you did good.

  2. Well, it certainly sounds like it’s on a faster track than JL…

    • when there’s trouble you know who to call!!!! teen titans!!!!!
      from there tower they can see it all!!!! teen titans!!!!!!

  3. This should be interesting.I never got too much in to Teen Titans,though I knew enough about them to hate the anime cartoon on cartoon network. The
    only way this could possibly be good is if they keep Kid Flash in it. But then again,it’s kinda stupid if you think about it.They’re just a bunch of adolescent (did I spell that right?) sidekicks with no adult hero to lead or even train them. I hope JLA is made first-and I hope they limit it to Superman,Batman,Wonder Woman,Green Lantern (Hal Jordan),Flash (Barry Allen),and Martian Manhunter. Of course,they probably won’t include the latter hero in favor of another female character.

    • DC= “facepalm” if they don’t make this movie.

  4. I think a teen titan movie would be great. If you ever read a titan story you would know.

    • titans go!!!!!!

  5. I WOULD CAST JOESPH GORDON-LEVITT AS ROBIN, ELLEN PAGE AS RAVEN,LEE THOMPSON YOUNG AS CYBORG,AMANDA SEYFRIED AS STARFIRE & TAYLOR LAUTNER AS BEAST BOY

    • interesting choice of casting.

    • Lee Thompson Young would have been a good choice may he R.I.P

    • Blue print for legion of superheroes movie:

      -Chris pine as lightning lad.
      -Alice eve as Saturn girl.
      -jay Chou as karate kid.
      -Liam Hemsworth as super boy
      -dwane johnson as imperiex

  6. I don’t think this is a good idea i think they should start out with a justice league movie first and then a teen titans. They think it will make sense but it really won’t, teen titans are a group of side kick teenagers people are going to think “where did they come side kicks from” i mean its an obvious fact if its Robin and super boy but it still leaves a huge gaping gap in the plot if you start our with the teenagers before the mentors.

  7. can’t wait to see tiatns tower in a live movie,could be a hit,maybe

  8. The only one who was a sidekick was Robin. The others were from different planets except Cyborg he was more or less created like Robocop.

  9. DC should make this happen Because They are on a decline.
