... Ok got that out the way

Now I know we were bummed when TNT came out in January and announced that they were not going through with the Titans show. They said mostly because of the over saturated market and because the script didn't scream out to be made. Everyone figured that was it. Its done put a fork in it. However in early February the Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns said the Titans were not dead and that he has big plans for Titans. He knew for months that TNT was not gunna pull the trigger. Ppl were elated, pumped because now we will still see Titans live action. Ppl said we would get a movie of the Titans, but i believe Titans will stick to the small screen and here is why...

NO PLACE FOR TITANS DCCU,

PLENTY IN DCTVU

So what the title means is that there is no place for the Titans in the DCCU. I mean they are solely focused on the Justice League right now and they should be. They want to make this great JL universe and the Titans just don't fit anywhere in their plans. Ppl thought that the Cyborg movie would turn into the Titans movie, once news broke that the Titans idea was still alive everyone jumped to that conclusion. However if everyone watch the DC special on the CW, then u know its not gunna happen. Cyborg is more of an icon in this day and age, with the technology savvy world we live in now, where he would have the most impact. Thus making him a JL member, plus they spent so much time and energy making him more of a JL member and never a Titan to just put him in a Titans property. Plus if they decided to just make a Titans stand alone film, it would be detrimental to their DCCU. So no can do but...

It makes more sense for the Titans to be on the small screen, the DCTVU. Its a great way to test the Titans property amongst comic book fans and regular tv watching fans. There is a placement for the Titans here in the Arrowverse or Flarrowverse, whichever floats your boat. This universe has made incredible strides in this market. Introducing characters and connecting shows that make each crossover enjoyable to watch. Plus with AJ Kreisberg, getting a new deal from the CW network to make more shows on their network was big. They realize that these shows are money and in DC nothing other than the Justice League will draw more than the Titans. Makes sense to make Titans the focal point on tv while making Justice League the focal point on the big screen. ITS GENIUS!!!

THE TITANS MEMBERS

Now there have been many Titans members throughout its comic book history. The most popular iteration was the 80s version in the comics with Nightwing, Starfire, Kid Flash, Wondergirl (Donna Troy), Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy. Though highly doubt we will see Beast Boy cause he will do serious damage to a tv budget but i feel if they pick up huge momentum we may see him in later seasons. Cyborg as i mentioned before is now a Justice League member and never was a Titan. However i feel CW has been setting up this Titans team right in plain sight.

WALLY WEST AKA KID FLASH

Keiynan Lonsdale

Now if u have been keeping up with The Flash this season, well the Wests have picked up a new family member in Wally West. Wally has had this other family he never knew about thrusted upon him by his dying mother. Not knowing how to handle it, he has lashed out a few times. He does not know his place within this family. Even though he has made strides in this part of his life, he may always feel like the outsider. Always on the outside looking in. Which could lead him to leaving this family probably at the end of this season. Tryna figure out where he belongs in this world which could lead him straight to very like-minded individuals. Plus he has shown his passion, his love for speed with being a drag racer. He loves what speed does for him and i have feeling that he will get his powers sometime towards the end of this season.

ROY HARPER AKA RED ARROW

COLTON HAYNES

Now i have changed the name at the top from Arsenal to Red Arrow cuz he may need a new name and new uniform with his new team. Now Roy Harper gave up his old life so Oliver can keep on being a hero to his city. Roy moved away tryna get far away from his old life as possible but was brought back this season due to a tech savvy villian named The Calculator. After his incredible return for that episode i feel he will somehow return maybe in the season finale when shit hits the fan to help his old friend and may run into some new friends as he still continues to find a life away from his old life. Starting to see the pattern.

MARI MCCABE AKA VIXEN

MEGALYN ECHIKUNWOKE

Now if u have watched the CW seed or a recent episode of Arrow, i don't have to tell you who she is exactly. Well if u haven't, quick bio. Her mother was killed when she was a baby (don't know about the father) and she was adopted by this family out in Detroit. She never really felt part of the family because she had so many unanswered questions about her past and her old family. Later on discovered her mother was killed by her sister over a magic necklace talisman that her mother saved for her. The talisman allows Mari to channel the spirit of the animal kingdom. She recently helped save Oliver's kid from Damien Darhk, loved that episode by the way. There has been talk to see her in live action. Now i don't see a long term series with this character individually, she doesn't have enough history. However as a Titan member she can be on that show for a long while. Love to see her there.

JAIME REYES AKA BLUE BEETLE

TYLER POSEY

Now this is a long shot but an easter egg was dropped by in Arrow episode. Involving Roy's comeback to Star City. He had to steal tech from Kord Industries, where the scarab of Blue Beetle is held. Which in comic book lore gets attached to Jaime Reyes' spinal cord and turns him into Blue Beetle. Feelin' like a freak, an outcast he finds family with the Titans. Could be a similar storyline here.

DICK GRAYSON AKA NIGHTWING

STEVEN R MCQUEEN

OR

DANNY SHEPARD

Now i know what you guys are saying Scott Eastwood is Dick Grayson.... Sure maybe but he won't have a huge impact. Mostly a cameo. I think though there is a better chance we will see this character on Arrow towards the season finale. Grayson as Nightwing returns to bludhaven (which was referenced in the first two seasons of Arrow before the TNT Titans announcement) after his breakup from Batman. Protecting his city from the shadows until HIVE and whatever they are planning is heading into final stage. This could bring in Nightwing since Bludhaven is the sister city of Star City in this universe and whatever happens to Star City will happen to Bludhaven which could bring Nightwing out to help Team Arrow. When thats said and done he could end up meeting up with the others like him as he also he tries to find his way and his independence from Batman. Nightwing is the linchpin of the DC Comics universe and could easily be the same as the leader of the Titans.

KORIAND'R AKA STARFIRE

ALEXANDRA DADDARIO

Now the easter egg i have heard about Starfire was surrounding Hawkgirl on the show Legends of Tomorrow. There is some link between Hawkgirl and from the slavers that have Starfire from what i have heard. Mostly i would love to see her on the show and love to see her interact with her teammates but mainly Nightwing.

BARBARA GORDON AKA ORACLE

LYNDSY FONSECA

Now even though she wasn't officially of the Titans, i feel everyone needs a tech person. She would be perfect for the Titans and she is a top notch tech guru. She is even better than Felicity, which i would love to see a friendly rivalry between the two from time to time. Loved to see her chemistry with the Titans and mostly Nightwing.

RACHEL ROTH AKA RAVEN

ELIZABETH GILLES

OR

TAISSA FARMIGA

Raven may show up towards the end of Arrow season finale. May try to bring the team together to fight her father Trigon. Loved to see this happen.

Other characters i wanna see: Wondergirl (Donna Troy), Superboy (Conner Kent), Aqualad, and Miss Martian.

THE VILLIANS

SLADE WILSON AKA DEATHSTROKE

MANU BENNETT

LEX LUTHOR

MICHAEL ROSENBAUM

VANDAL SAVAGE

CASPER CRUMP

MALCOLM MERLYN AKA BLACK ARCHER

JOHN BARROWMAN

TRIGON

JAMES FRAIN

CONCLUSION

Titans were not just based on just kicking ass but it they were filled with inner conflict. To find where they belonged in the universe. If they were more than just masked heroes saving the world. The Titans show would make this DCTVU white hot and it will take this to a whole new stratusphere. Its just too good of an opportunity to pass up. Loved to see Nightwing live action especially on this tv show. A great way to introduce the character. Two of DCs greatest properties in live action form, Titans on CW while Justice League takes over the Big Screen. DC will have it made.
