Teen Titans has seen a couple of reboots on television, but never the big screen. You would think with all the superhero adaptations this would be a big one especially showing the younger generations not just adults can be heroes. Each of the Teen Titans represent a little bit more than a group of misfits kids saving the world. Also for a marketing standpoint, kids can totally see this because let's be honest if you let your kids see Kick Ass, bad on you (but your like the coolest parent).
Lets start off with....
I think for me this is the obvious choice. Lerman has already proven he can be an action hero in Percy Jackson series and The Three Musketeers. He has the whole awkward but strong type. Also what's very important to me for Robin is an actor who could play cocky but endearing, which Lerman can play very well.
Starfire is a very particular character and I think Holland Roden can play it best. She is a hero that shows you can be sweet and "popular", and still be smart and insecure about who you are. A complex character. With a heart of gold, Roden is perfect playing the alien driven by her emotions and feelings (the energy that fuels Tamaranians). It shows that girls (and boys) can still be strong while embracing their feelings and emotions. This is where society falls short, not giving young people a strong hero that is driven by their emotions.
Blowing up big, Alex Lawther is one of the name popping out of the UK. His big film right now is The Imitation Game. I actually had the pleasure of meeting him for a BRIEF moment. His acting credits aren't huge but I think he could be like a Nicolas Hoult, where he might surprise us in this kind of role.
Tyler Posey is my other choice for beast boy. He has the charisma needed to be the boy could change into multiple animals. With Teen Wolf under his belt, he has shown that he is more than capable of a guy with a "wild side".
MICHAEL B. JORDAN
Michael B. Jordan was another obvious choice. I honestly can't think of anyone else who could play the half robot and half human. I know he is like the resident go to young black man at this time (like Will Smith of his time) but Jordan has shown wide range in his acting and can help carry of a movie. Unfortunately, they nabbed him for the The Fantastic Four, I'm still unsure what is happening with that movie but much has yet to be seen with the great cast they have lined up.
A little bit older than I would like, but Emmy Rossum is feisty the way that Raven needs to be. Watch any episode of Shameless. She can carry her own weight and many others, which I think is crucial to someone like Raven since her father is virtually Satan (wouldn't be that big a of an acting leap). Also Chloe Grace Moretz is too young I believe for the rest of the cast but I would pick her.
So there you go those are my Teen Titans. Some I believe are pretty strong and others I guess we would have to wait for the perfect one, but what do you think?
