During the DC Universe’s pop-up experience at San Diego Comic-Con, where numerous Titans’ promotional images are being displayed, a lot of individual photos of the top four team members are also displayed i.e. Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Raven (Teagan Croft), Koriand’r/Starfire (Anna Diop), and Garfield Logan/Beast Boy (Ryan Potter). You can have a look at the close-up images of the Comic-Con display, below:
These are the first official promo images featuring Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy after their set photos were leaked earlier in the year. Back then, the set photos didn’t generate great hype, and a lot of people slammed Diop and Potter’s costumes because they were not “comic book accurate.”
“For the sake of our incredible fans – I hated that this is the first picture people are seeing.” Diop posted on social media in response to the criticism.”It’s out of context and it’s a misrepresentation of the incredible character I get to play. And also a misrepresentation of the phenomenal production behind it all. With that said, the hate speech that followed was deplorable. And though I am highly unbothered, I do want to use this as an opportunity to say that tearing people down is not something that I tolerate. For myself or anyone else.”
We hope that these promo images are going to give fans a clear idea of what the series has in store and might even build some hype.
The other Titans cast members are Lindsey Gort (Amy Rohrbach), Minka Kelly (Dawn Granger/Dove), Alan Ritchson(Hank Hall/Hawk), April Bowlby (Elasti-Girl), Jake Michaels (Cliff Steele), Dwain Murphy (Negative Man), Seamus Dever (Robot Man), and Bruno Bichir (The Chief). Titans’ producers are Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Akiva Goldsman.
You can have a look at the official synopsis for Titans, below:
“Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.”
Titans is scheduled to premiere later this year. We will share more updates as they come!
