Teen Titans: The Movie

May 31, 2007

Absolutely huge news from The Hollywood Reporter… Warner Brothers is developing a TEEN TITANS movie!!! This is a fanboy’s wet dream right here… will they go with a traditional old school sidekicks team (Robin, Wonder Girl, Speedy, Aqualad, and Kid Flash), or will the inspiration be the Wolfman-Perez glory days (Nightwing, Donna Troy, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy, and Jericho)? Either way, WE WIN!!! And of course, you know this almost certainly means we’ll get to see, live and in the flesh…

DEATHSTROKE.

The ultimate DC badass and THE Titans villian. If they get this right, Slade could end up being one of the all-time great film villians of the Super-hero genre, right there with Nicholson’s Joker and Molina’s Doc Ock.

The news gets even better… MARK VERHEIDEN is writing the script… this guy gets it– from his comics work on THE MASK and TIMECOP to his credits on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and SMALLVILLE–  we should have plenty of faith that he’ll knock this one out of the park.

So who do we HAVE to see on this team? What should the story be? Any chance of a Batman cameo?
