TNT has dropped the first trailer for Titans, the new live-action DC superhero show based on the company’s Teen Titans series.
To illustrate that this ain’t no kids show, the trailer features a scene depicting Robin (Brenton Thwaites) brutally murdering a bunch of dudes before uttering the line “F–k Batman.”
See for yourself:
Produced by Greg Berlanti, who’s also behind other DC shows like The Flash, Supergirl, and Arrow, it’s clear that Titans is not going to be another CW superhero drama. This has got enough cursing and bloodshed to make Zack Snyder blush! It’s way too early to call whether or not this surprising tonal shift will add up to a good TV show or not, but I’m definitely intrigued by what we’ve seen so far.
Titans premieres this fall. Will you be checking it out?
