These days it seems as though the world of DC Comics on television is getting exponentially larger every single day. It's apparently not enough that we already have Arrow, Flash, Gotham and Constantine, because we're hearing regular updates about prospective shows like Supergirl and the just-announced Krypton. Also very much in the works is a live-action adaptation of Teen Titans, which was announced three months ago, but is reportedly now gearing up to start shooting next year.
This new update comes to us directly from Geoff Johns himself, who comic readers know as the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment (not to mention writer/producer on Arrow and Flash). Earlier today, Johns spent some time answering fan questions on his personal Twitter account, and when asked for an update on Teen Titans he revealed some key information to the project's developmental timeline:
After the fan sent an appreciative response to Johns' reply, the DC Comics exec further confirmed that the show will center on former Robin Dick Grayson:
In addition to Nightwing, the only other two characters who have been confirmed to appear in the pilot - which will merely be called Titans - are the alien Starfire and the half-demon Raven. Akiva Godsman has been hired to write the script for the pilot, and while there are very few details available about the project, it has been reported that there will be many other heroic characters involved as well. If the first episode shoots early enough in the year and gets a deal for a first season, it's not outside the realm of possibility that we could wind up seeing it as soon as the fall of 2015. There is no announced home for the project just yet, but it has been said that it will be going to a cable station rather than one of the networks. After all, there's only so much room for DC Comics properties in primetime slots.
