It looks like Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Starfire, Raven, Hawk and Dove won’t be coming to a small screen near you. TNT has announced that the show has been shelved because of the clutter of comic properties already on TV, and development wasn’t taking them in a direction that they wanted to go. Production on the show was expected to begin this summer.
I had a feeling this show was in trouble when for some unknown reason TNT was (rumored to be) changing the name of the show to Blackbirds. Looks like you’ll have to check out Batman: Bad Blood next month for the only Dick Grayson fix you’ll get anytime soon.
News on a TV series I find so intriguing that I cared enough to write an article on a TV series. Yeah. It’s about DC’s Titans. Per Nerdist: the team will consist of Dick Grayson (he starts as Robin and shifts later to Nightwing), Barbara Gordon (the exact origin as Oracle, but the word “Oracle”is left unsaid in the pilot), Hawk and Dove (the female Dove here, not the original), Raven, and Starfire. No mention of why Danny Chase, the most popular Titan ever*, was not included in the show. We expect massive firings to occur at WB over this.
