Back in April, fans learned the Teen Titans were finally getting a live-action adaptation. DC Entertainment confirmed it would premiere Titans next year, leaving fans to speculate over its casting options and storylines. Since the show was announced, few updates have been given about the project since. That is, until now.
According to new reports, Titans will kick off production later this fall down in Georgia. Production Weekly learned the TV series will begin filming on September 25th in Atlanta. Currently, no official casting announcements have been released for Titans, but fans expect a few to trickle in soon enough. With filming set to begin in a matter of months, casting reveals will likely be made between July and August.
Of course, plenty are wondering whether any Arrowverse actors from The CW will be added into Titans. There has been no word on whether the new series is tied to The CW’s lineup of comic book series. If the show is connected, then the Arrowverse does have actors for Kid Flash and Speedy. Keiynan Lonsdale plays Wally West over on The CW while Colton Haynes took up Speedy’s moniker.
Right now, fans think it is unlikely that Titans will tie-in to the larger Arrowverse. DC diehards have pointed to the new show’s network as reasoning; Titans will not air on The CW as it will instead debut on DC’s new streaming service. The platform will also host the new season of Young Justice.
The series is being produced by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Akiva Goldsman - the same team that brings the DC Universe on The CW. Goldsman has written the script for Titans, and it's expected to premiere in 2018.
