They’re already planning a “Justice League” movie, so it comes as no surprise that Warner Bros. Pictures has also picked up DC Comics title “Teen Titans” for a big-screen treatment says The Hollywood Reporter.
Starting in 1964 as a sort of junior Justice League, the team comprised of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy.
It hit big success in the 80’s when they were re-imagined as college age young adults which allowed it to explore mature themes. Robin become Nightwing, and characters Cyborg, Starfire and Raven were introduced.
This live-action version, said to be a dark and serious adaptation, is being produced by Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road productions. Mark Verheiden will pen the script.
