‘Titans’ Episode 1: Goes Batman Dark

GameStop, Inc.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) continues to go so light that it’s almost camp, the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) goes

the polar opposite and this time so does DCTV, including the Titans.

As every new rendition of Batman is old, we need to see the death of his parents, so to with his original sidekick Dick Grayson aka Robin (Brenton Thwaites) we must witness the death of The Flying Grayson’s. Only, there is a twist, Raven (Teagan Croft) relives his loss in a nightly dream.

Our lone, surviving, Flying Grayon is now a detective in Detroit and prefers to work alone, but that all changes when new partner Amy Rohrbach (Lindsey Gort) is assigned to him. Just like his guardian, Bruce Wayne, Dick likes to work alone and the cops crack wise about his former partner getting gassed by The Joker.

Your two and only spoiler; the F**K Batman scene is so crazy violent that I started screaming, “Ohhhhhhhh My God! Holy Sh*t!” like ECW Original Joey Styles. One thing that bothered me was that Starfire’s (Anna Diop) introduction was that of a amnestic Austrian prostitute but really some sort of super spy. The prostitute disguise has been far over done. Also, why are Black people being cast more-and-more as aliens on tv shows and movies? Africa is a different continent, not planet.

It is great though that the soundtrack has a Batman Beyond vibe but it does feel more like The Outsiders than the Titans. I am really surprised they went with Detroit instead of Bludhaven, but if you’re going to use a real city that has been Hell on Earth in the United States for the past three decades, Detroit is the right place for it.

If you like DC Comics’ storytelling style and it’s cinematic dark tones, then Titans is going to have a great run, especially since this series understands color, balance and how to keep your attention.

Titans streams Fridays on the DC Universe App.

Summary

Titans is dark, gritty and everything we have ever wanted from the Snyderverse, only good. DCTV and the DCAU continue to own the day.
