DC Rumored to be Developing a ‘Teen Titans’ Movie


We know what the general line-up is for the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe films.  We started off with Man of Steel and are moving next to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.  The line-up continues through Wonder Woman and the Justice League of America, all for several years coming.

But what comes next?  DC has a rich history of comic book superheroes and villains to go after, and even beyond their obvious “trinity” their smaller heroes and teams are still well followed.  Right now, DC Comics and Warner Bros. may be deciding to lose their upcoming Cyborg movie and replace it with Teen Titans.  This would make sense as Cyborg is a fringe character at best, and their recent attempt to relaunch the character did not exactly go stratospheric.  What this would be is slating the Teen Titans movie for 2020 in Cyborg’s place, which would also pair it next to the pilot for the TNT television show they are working on.

Right now, it may make sense to keep Teen Titans in the DCU release schedule since we do not know yet if they intend on bringing any television shows into the shared movie continuity.  This would have been a big opportunity with both Arrow and The Flash, yet they decided to share continuity only with each other.  Supergirl at CBS was another opportunity for this, but instead it looks like it will be entirely its own property.  DC cannot keep doing this if they expect to have a popular continuity in the same way the Marvel Cinematic Universe does.  The MCU stands out because it hits on multiple fronts: it includes the major movies, the light network television shows like Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the gritty Netflix shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.  Teen Titans is too valuable of a property to lose it from the DCU, so it could be simply that they will have a movie for the team and then bring it over for a network show that stays in the DCU continuity.

At this point, who knows how DC is going to keep this concept going.
