It's a good time to be a DC comics fan. Not only is [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) heading our way fast - with countless other movie adaptations set to follow. The small screen, too, is increasingly full of DC-originating properties, with the returning Arrow now being joined by The Flash, Gotham and Constantine.

There's one major fan favorite, though, who just can't catch a break.

Dick Grayson, aka the original Robin (and later Nightwing) seems to have been very much left out of the upcoming Batman v Superman, and yet has seemingly been kept from having his own TV show in order to keep him safe should the movies come calling.

Well, no longer - because the Teen Titans - with Grayson's Nightwing at the helm - are on their way to television. Or, at least, they're in development at TNT, with a view to a series - named Titans - getting the green light soon. Written and executive produced by Akiva Goldsman and Marc Haimes, the show seems likely to be heading our way in the near(ish) future - but the big question remains: Which Titans will we be seeing?

Deadline, who broke the news, are reporting that along with Nightwing, Starfire and Raven will be heading to the screen - but which of their compatriots will join them remains a mystery. With The Flash already having a series of his own, we're unlikely to see Kid Flash make an appearance, and since Cyborg is heading to Batman v Superman, he's also likely out of the mix. The team, though, has had enough members over the years to make filling out the roster a whole lot easier than choosing between them all.

Here, then, are our top three picks for some of the other final spots on the team:

Beast Boy

The light heart of the Teen Titans, Garfield 'Gar' Logan gained the ability to morph into the shape of any animal when his parents used an untested serum to save his life. Beneath his smiling and ever changing (green) exterior, though, lies a troubled and complex young man, who blames himself for his parents death.

So like Batman, but with better jokes. And an endless stream of awesome animal cameos.

Wonder Girl

Rescued from a fire in her building as a child, Donna Troy took her name as a mark of respect to her savior: Wonder Woman. Raised on Themyscira, she was eventually granted the same powers as her new Amazon family - superhuman strength, endurance and speed, as well as the ability to fly.

So think Wonder Woman, but allowed to have more attitude. And a less conventional costume.

Miss Martian

A Martian, stranded on Earth - just like Martian Manhunter - M'Gann M'orzz is mostly just trying to find a way to fit in - which in the Young Justice animated series led to her becoming a fan favorite. Her telepathic abilities don't necessarily help others to trust her - but he super strength and telekinesis make her a vital ally all the same.

So Martian Manhunter, but more like every single teenager alive. And - in Young Justice - a cute redhead.

Whoever ends up in the final version - and it's probably too much to hope for that it'll be as female-dominated as this would make it - let's just hope that [Titans](series:2265361) makes it to a full series!


Who would you guys most like to see added to the Titans line up?
