Many might remember that “Titans” was the first offering of the at the time fledgling service which was going to offer a lot of original and classic programming along with a stockpile of digital comic books. The brand new clip is below as a First Look and they even offered newbies a recap part. Take a look.
Premise: Titans focuses on a group of young superheroes who form the titular superhero team to combat evil and other perils. The first incarnation of the team to appear in the series consists of Dick Grayson, Batman’s former vigilante partner turned police detective, Kory Anders, an extraterrestrial afflicted by amnesia, Rachel Roth, an empath pursued by dangerous forces, and Garfield “Gar” Logan, a shapeshifter formerly with the Doom Patrol. In the first season, Rachel comes to Dick for protection from her pursuers, which leads to them meeting and teaming up with Kory and Gar. The team eventually learns that Rachel is being targeted by her demonic father Trigon, who seeks to enslave the world. Continue reading DC Universe: “Titans” Recap and Season 2 First Look→
Back around the time of the Comic Con International: San Diego, we shared the first trailer for the upcoming DC Universe streaming service program “Titans” and I hope that you managed to see it since it was pretty exciting. If you missed the post, no worries since you can just click THIS LINK to check it out before I continue along. During last weeks New York Comic Con, over at the DC Comics pavilion, the rallying for their new streaming service of “DC Universe” was in high gear. The folks who attended the convention could get a special edition “Titans” comic for free and if they showed one of the reps their account they got a goodie bag that included a special Robin pin. Today, this service is officially live and the debut series “Titans” first episode is available for streaming. Take a look at the dramatic poster below along with some casting. I’ll close out with additional editorial views soon after.

That said here is the first full trailer for the DC Universe program “Titans”.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well I have to say that this first offering from the new DC Universe service looks rather exciting. Clearly by the language we get in the trailer, this is not for network television but I am fine with that. Though I’m not sold by the look of Starfire in the clip, I do love the inclusion of Hawk and Dove and Doom Patrol in this series. One thing that I enjoy about the Marvel films is the ever expanding universe and its good to see DC following suit. What do you think of the clip? Chime in down below and get ready for a whole lot more of this kind of content.
We are cooking with gas now in terms of the amount of “Rebirth” titles hitting the stands and its enough to say that you better ask for little overtime at the job or setup a table outside on the block to sell some things you don’t need in order to buy some more. That whole vicious cycle Below you will find the official press provisions about the first issue offerings from DC Comics along with the covers and then I will return at the close with a few more thoughts.
