The Teen Titans, also known as The New Teen Titans, New Titans, or The Titans, is a DC Comics superhero team. As the group's name suggests, its membership is usually composed of teenaged superheroes.

The first incarnation of the team unofficially debuted in The Brave and the Bold #54 (1964) as a "junior Justice League" featuring Robin , Kid Flash , and Aqualad, the sidekicks of Leaguers Batman, the Flash, and Aquaman, respectively. The group then made its first appearance under the name "Teen Titans" in The Brave and the Bold #60, joined by Wonder Girl , the younger sister of Wonder Woman. Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy later took Aqualad's place in the lineup.

While only a modest success with its original incarnation, the series became a huge hit with its 1980s revival, under the stewardship of writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. In 1980, the two relaunched the team as The New Teen Titans, aging the characters to young adulthood and featuring a level of complex storytelling and character exploration unheard of from DC Comics at the time. Original members Robin, Wonder Girl, and Kid Flash were joined by new characters Cyborg, Starfire, and Raven, as well as the former Doom Patrol member Beast Boy, now using the name Changeling. The New Titans had several encounters with the original Titans of Greek mythology, particularly Hyperion. The series was retitled Tales of the Teen Titans with issue #41 (April 1984), and Pérez left in 1985 to headline the DC Comics 50th Anniversary miniseries Crisis on Infinite Earths. It was again renamed to simply The New Titans in December 1988 (issue #50), and was ultimately canceled in February 1996 after 130 issues.

The series was relaunched as Teen Titans in October 1996, with a roster of all-new members under the mentorship of the Atom (Ray Palmer), who had been de-aged to his teenage years; the series ended in September 1998 after 24 issues. A three-issue limited series called JLA/The Titans: The Technis Imperative (December 1998-February 1999) led to the March 1999 debut of The Titans, a series featuring select Titans from all of the group's incarnations that ran for 50 issues until April 2003. A new regular series titled Teen Titans began in September 2003, featuring Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy and Raven of the 1980s group joined by new teenaged versions of Robin , Wonder Girl , and Kid Flash , as well as the Superman clone Superboy . By 2006 the team consisted of only the younger members and some new additions; a concurrent series called Titans debuted in April 2008 featuring some of the "classic" Titans from the original and 1980s rosters, with Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Wally West, Garth, and Roy Harper using their "adult" codenames Nightwing, Troia, Flash, Tempest, and Red Arrow, respectively.

A Teen Titans animated television series ran on Cartoon Network from July 2003 to January 2006. Based on the 1980s version of the team but diverging from that continuity in some ways, the series spawned two related comic book titles, Teen Titans Go! and Tiny Titans.

Publication history

Original incarnation

Robin , Kid Flash and Aqualad — the sidekicks of Justice League members Batman, the Flash, and Aquaman — teamed up in The Brave and the Bold #54 (July 1964) to defeat a weather-controlling villain known as Mr. Twister. They subsequently appeared under the name "Teen Titans" in The Brave and the Bold #60 in July 1965, joined by Wonder Woman's younger sister Wonder Girl in her first appearance. After next being featured in Showcase #59 (December 1965), the Teen Titans were spun off into their own series with Teen Titans #1, cover-dated February 1966.

The series' original premise revolved around the Teen Titans helping teenagers, answering calls from around the world. Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy makes guest appearances before officially joining the team in Teen Titans (vol. 1) #19 (1969). Aqualad takes a leave of absence from the group in the same issue but makes several later guest appearances, sometimes with girlfriend Aquagirl. Psychic Lilith Clay and African-American Mal Duncan (who possess no superpowers) also join the group. Beast Boy of the Doom Patrol makes a guest appearance seeking membership but was rejected for being too young at the time; existing heroes Hawk and Dove, a duo of teenaged superpowered brothers, appear in issue #21; and time-displaced caveman Gnaark aids the team in two issues.

The theme of teenagers learning to take on adult roles and responsibilities was common throughout the series. The series explored (though not too deeply) then current events such as inner-city racial tension and various protests against the Vietnam War. One storyline beginning in issue #25 (February 1970) saw the Titans deal with the accidental death of a peace activist, leading them to reconsider their methods. As a result, the Teen Titans briefly abandoned their identities to work as ordinary, powerless civilians, but the change was quickly abandoned. Along the way, Aqualad was removed from the series and the character of Mr. Jupiter, who was Lilith's mentor and employer, was introduced and financially backed the Titans for a brief period. Ultimately the book was quietly canceled with #43 (February 1973).

1970s revival

Teen Titans (vol.
1) #50, with the majority of the Titans of that era.
A few years after its cancellation, the series resumed with issue #44 (November 1976), but struggled to find focus. The few stories from the brief revival included the introduction of the African-American super-heroine Bumblebee, the introduction of the “Titans West” team, consisting of a number of other teen heroes including Bat-Girl (Betty Kane) and Golden Eagle, and the introduction of Joker's Daughter in Teen Titans #48. The revival was short-lived, and the series was canceled as of #53 (February 1978). Tellingly, in the last issue the heroes realized that, now in their early 20s, they had simply outgrown the "Teen" Titans. In the last panel, without speaking, they go their separate ways.

The title was used again in 1999 for the Teen Titans Annual #1, 1967 issue (ISBN 1-56389-486-6), a one-shot special that reprinted selected Silver Age stories in the 1960s-style 80-Page Giant format, as a companion piece to the original comic book series, had an Annual issue been published at that time.

New Teen Titans (1980–1996)

DC Comics Presents #26 introduced a team of new Titans, anchored by founding members Robin, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash, soon followed by The New Teen Titans #1 (November 1980). The series re-introduced the Doom Patrol's Beast Boy as Changeling and introduced the machine man Cyborg, the alien Starfire and the dark empath Raven. Raven, an expert manipulator, forms the group to fight her demonic father Trigon the Terrible, and the team remains together thereafter as a group of young adult heroes.

The villains' motivations were often complex, following trends that were coming to a head at that time towards greater depth in comics, particularly in the case of Deathstroke the Terminator, a mercenary who takes a contract to kill the Titans in order to fulfill a job his son had been unable to complete. This led to perhaps the most notable Titans storyline of the era (1984's "The Judas Contract," in Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44 and Teen Titans Annual #3) in which a psychopathic girl named Terra, with the destructive power to manipulate earth and all-earth related materials, infiltrates the Titans in order to destroy them. "The Judas Contract" won the Comics Buyer's Guide Fan Award for "Favorite Comic Book Story" of 1984, and was later reprinted as a standalone trade paperback in 1988 and 1991. This story also featured Dick Grayson (Robin) adopting the identity of Nightwing,Wally West giving up on his Kid Flash persona and quitting the Titans (which eventually led to him becoming the third Flash), and the introduction of a new member in Jericho, the other son of Deathstroke.

Other notable New Teen Titans stories included "The Terror of Trigon" (1984-1985), featuring Raven's demon father attempting to take over Earth, and Raven's own struggle to remain good despite Trigon's evil demonic blood inside her; "A Day in the Life..." presenting a day in the team members’ personal lives; "Who is Donna Troy?" (1984) depicted Robin investigating Wonder Girl's origins, and "We are Gathered Here Today..." telling the story of Wonder Girl's wedding, a rare superhero wedding in that a fight does not break out. Tales of the New Teen Titans, a four-part limited series by Wolfman and Perez, was published in 1982, detailing the back-stories of Cyborg, Raven, Changeling, and Starfire.

New Teen Titans and the Uncanny X-Men

The brainchild of writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez, New Teen Titans was widely thought of as DC's answer to the increasingly popular Uncanny X-Men from Marvel Comics, as both series featured all-new members and depicted young heroes from disparate backgrounds whose internal conflicts were as integral to the series as was their combat against villains. The two teams met in the 1982 crossover one-shot entitled "Apokolips... Now", which teamed Darkseid, Deathstroke the Terminator, and Dark Phoenix against both teams.

New Teen Titans (vol. 2)

The New Teen Titans series experienced some title and numbering confusion in 1984 when the title was relaunched with a new #1 issue as part of a new initiative at DC informally referred to as "hardcover/softcover." The New Teen Titans, along with Legion of Super-Heroes and Batman and the Outsiders, were the first and only titles included in this program, where the same stories would be published twice, first in a more expensive edition with higher-quality printing and paper distributed exclusively to comic book specialty stores, then republished a year later in the original low-budget format and distributed to newsstands. The New Teen Titans (vol. 1) title was renamed Tales of the Teen Titans (not to be confused with the earlier limited series), while a new concurrently published series named The New Teen Titans (vol. 2) launched with a new #1. After both titles ran new stories for one year, the former book began reprinting the latter's stories for the newsstand, continuing until the "hardcover/softcover" idea was abandoned after Tales of the Teen Titans #91.

Issue #1 of New Teen Titans (vol. 2) created controversy when Dick Grayson and Starfire were depicted in bed together, although it had been established for some time that they were a couple. Pérez left the series after New Teen Titans (vol. 2) #5. José Luis Garcia Lopez followed Pérez as the title's artist, and Eduardo Barreto contributed a lengthy run after Garcia Lopez. Paul Levitz scripted and wrote several issues of the unpopular and lengthy Brother Blood saga when Wolfman briefly took a break from the book. Pérez temporarily returned as co-plotter/penciller with issue #50, with the series name being amended to The New Titans, without the "Teen" prefix, as the characters were no longer teenagers.

Issue #50 told a new origin story for Wonder Girl, her link to Wonder Woman having been severed due to retcons created in the aftermath of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Pérez remained as penciller with the book through to issue #55, 57 and 60, while only providing layouts for issues #58-59, and 61, with artist Tom Grummett finishing pencils and Bob McLeod as inker. Perez remained as inker for the cover art to issues #62-67. He would return for the series final issue with #130 (Feb. 1996) providing cover art.

The series introduced a number of new characters and put older characters through radical changes during the next seven years. Members during this time included Phantasm, Pantha, Red Star, Impulse, Damage, Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), Supergirl, Rose Wilson, Minion and Baby Wildebeest. As a result, the group that appeared in the final issue, #130 (February 1996), had little resemblance to the one that anchored DC's line-up in the early 1980s.

Teen Titans Spotlight On

With the Teen Titans properties rivaling Marvel's X-Men for popularity, another new title was launched in August, 1986, this time to focus less on the team itself than on individual Titans, hence "Spotlight". The series aimed to "put the spotlight on individual members of the Teen Titans, one at a time, and let each story dictate how many issues it should run," most storylines running to just a single issue, after the series launched with a two-part focus on Starfire and a four-issue highlighting of Jericho.The series ran for 21 issues, the last issue departing slightly from its aim to highlight individuals, culminating in a 'Spotlight' on the 1960s Teen Titans team as a whole (April, 1988), although there had previously been an issue focusing on another team, the Brotherhood of Evil.

Team Titans

The Team Titans were one of 100 groups sent back through time to prevent the birth of Lord Chaos, the son of Donna Troy and Terry Long. Their mission was to kill the pregnant Donna Troy before she could give birth. Mirage, Killowat, Redwing, Terra, Dagon, Prestor Jon and Battalion made up the team.

Teen Titans (vol. 2, 1996–1998)

A new Teen Titans series written and penciled by Dan Jurgens began later that year with a new #1 (October 1996), with former New Teen Titans co-creator George Pérez as inker (Pérez would ink the first 15 issues of the series). Atom, who had become a teenager following the events of Zero Hour, leads the brand-new team, with Arsenal becoming a mentor about halfway through the twenty four-issue run, which ended in September 1998.

In an attempt to boost sales, a contest was held in the letter pages to determine who would join the team. Robin (Tim Drake), won the vote, but editors on the Batman titles banned Robin from appearing in the Teen Titans, forcing Jurgens to use Captain Marvel, Jr. instead. The inclusion of Captain Marvel, Jr failed to boost sales of the title, which was then canceled.

The Titans (1999–2002)

The team was revived in a three-issue limited series, JLA/Titans: The Technis Imperative, featuring nearly every character who had been a Titan and showcased the return of Cyborg. This limited series led into The Titans written by Devin Grayson, starting with Titans Secret Files #1 (March 1999).

This incarnation of the team consisted of a mix of former original Titans, including Nightwing, Troia, Arsenal, Tempest and the Flash (Wally West), from the original team; Starfire, Cyborg and Changeling, from the New Teen Titans; Damage from the New Titans (the 1994 series); and Argent from the Teen Titans (the 1996 series). There was one new member, Jesse Quick. This version of the team lasted until issue #50 (2002). The West Coast branch of the team, Titans L.A., appeared once, in the pages of Titans Secret Files #2.

Between the end of Teen Titans and the beginning of The Titans, the next generation of young heroes: Superboy, Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl, Secret and Arrowette; formed their own team in Young Justice, a series similar to the original Teen Titans. Both series were concluded with the three-issue limited series Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day, which led into new Teen Titans and Outsiders ongoing series.

Teen Titans (vol. 3, 2003 - present)

Writer Geoff JohnsTeen Titans series began in 2003, featuring a mix of previous and new members, most of whom had been part of Young Justice. Geoff wrote the book for the first forty-five issues before turning it over to Adam Beechen, who wrote the book for a four issue run from #46 to 49 after Geoff Johns' departure. Sean McKeever became the series' current writer as of #50 and his last issue will be #71.

The series’ original lineup parallels the lineup of Marv Wolfman's New Teen Titans series: veteran members Cyborg, Starfire and Beast Boy return, joined by younger heroes Robin, Superboy, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash. Raven re-joins the team in issue #12, and the new Speedy joins the team in Green Arrow #46, first appearing in the Titans book in issue #21. Starfire left the Teen Titans for the Outsiders. During the “Insiders” crossover with The Outsiders (issues #24–25), Superboy comes under Lex Luthor's control and attacks the team, afterwards taking a leave of absence that ends during Infinite Crisis.

The new series sees the team’s relocation from the east to the west coast, its headquarters located in San Franciscomarker instead of the traditional New York Citymarker location. The new Titans Tower also has a memorial hall with statues of the fallen Titans.

One Year Later: The new Teen Titans

In the one year jump after Infinite Crisis, Robin has returned to the Teen Titans, Wonder Girl has quit and has been fighting the Brotherhood of Evil. Starfire is missing in action after her journey into space. Raven's whereabouts are unknown, and Beast Boy has left the Titans to join the new Doom Patrol, along with former Titans Bumblebee and Herald, now called Vox. Speedy is said to be currently on an island with Connor Hawke. Kid Flash has aged into adulthood and become the fourth Flash. Cyborg has been damaged and inactive since his return from space, but 16-year-old genius fraternal twins Wendy and Marvin, have repaired him and given him new abilities. New members include Kid Devil and Ravager.

During the lost year, at least 24 new members joined the team, all of them short-term. Without proper leadership or the feeling of family the Titans normally provides, none of the new members could get along and work together.

Robin, Kid Devil, and Ravager reform the Teen Titans along with Wonder Girl, Cyborg, Raven, new member Miss Martian, and a resurrected Jericho. Robin tells Wonder Girl that he believes Raven could bring Superboy back to life, as she did with Jericho. Raven, reveals that she can not because Conner's soul has moved on. A memorial to Superboy has been erected outside Titans Tower. Unknown to the other Titans, Robin has secretly been attempting to re-clone Superboy, with nearly 100 failed attempts. This was until Wonder Girl found the lab, where she and Robin shared an unexpected kiss brought on by their mutual pain.

The Titans face a group calling themselves "Titans East," led by Deathstroke and intent on defeating the Titans. Deathstroke's team includes Risk, Sun Girl, Batgirl, Kid Crusader, Match, Inertia, Duela Dent and Enigma. Deathstroke has been manipulating his Titans East, blackmailing Risk, drugging Batgirl, and giving Inertia "Velocity 9", a drug which allows him to regain his super-speed without adverse effects. Robin cures Batgirl, and she, along with Duela Dent, who defects, allows the Teen Titans to gain the upper hand, and defeat Deathstroke's team.

Discussing the story arc, Geoff Johns referred to Titans East as juvenile delinquents who will be causing trouble, and described Risk as the first white trash superhero.

Soon after, events related to the Countdown story arc affect the Titans. Two members, Duela Dent and Bart Allen are killed in separate events. At the same time, the team reorganizes. Cyborg leaves the team for his own pursuits, Supergirl joins the team, and Blue Beetle is invited to Titans Tower to train whenever he wants.

The Titans Tomorrow return, allied with Lex Luthor, and intent on altering the present to fit their future. During the fight, Miss Martian's future counterpart reveals the rationale behind the Sinestro Corps and their war to subjugate the universe. The vision spurs Miss Martian to act, and she frees Robin, who again confronts his future self, who has become Batman. Cassie intervenes, and changes the future by kissing Robin, causing the future versions to fade out. The Titans then join the fight against the Sinestro Corps.

After their encounter with their future selves, Supergirl quits after Wonder Girl confesses their friendship is based in her sense of missing Conner. Cassie and Tim begin a brief relationship, while Kid Devil pines for Rose. Miss Martian finds that her future self has implanted a piece of her demented psyche within M'Ganns mind. Kid Devil is left in Titans Tower alone and throws a massive party for local Titans fans, which leads to him being captured by Dreadbolt.

A week later, while Robin and Wonder Girl discuss Kid Devil's absence, Ravager and the twins are attacked inside the tower by Persuader and Copperhead, who are being directed by the Clock King. Disruptor is sent to capture Miss Martian. Clock King describes his group as Terror Titans, and intends to sell his captives to "The Dark Side Club" to fight in arena combat. Though Ravager rescues the twins, she explodes the Tower in an effort to force her opponents to reveal Kid Devil's location. M'gann frees Kid Devil from Clock King's psychological conditioning. Robin, Wonder Girl, and Blue Beetle arrive, and help defeat the Terror Titans, freeing their teammates. Following the Terror Titans attack, Kid Devil sets out to capture Shockwave and is, to his dismay, helped by Blue Beetle. Although they don't get along and argue the whole time they eventually work out their problems and stop Shockwave, with the help of Kid Devil's new teleportation powers. After the battle Eddie takes the code name Red Devil, along with a new costume, assuring his teammates that the change is not in relation to his future counterpart. During some down time Marvin and Wendy find themselves tired of being the Titans "maids" and think about leaving when they find a dog on Titans' Island. The dog is quickly named Wonderdog. Miss Martian suddenly tells her teammates she has some issues to work out and leaves the team assuring them she'd be back. While searching the tower for Wonderdog, Wendy stumbles upon Marvin's dead body at the feet of a transformed Wonderdog. She tries to run and call for help but is mauled by the beast. Wonderdog then flees to his awaiting master, the son of Ares, King Lycus. Wendy survives the attack, but is left severely injured and apparently in a coma. Her father, the Calculator, has since vowed revenge against the team.

In the aftermath of the Batman R.I.P storyline, Robin decides to leave the group for an undetermined period of time and leaves the task of assembling and leading a new roster to Wonder Girl. Misfit applies to join the team while Traci 13 is being considered as a possible new member. After the Titans fight off the returned Brother Blood alongside Kid Eternity, Traci 13 and Misfit both leave. Furthermore, Red Devil loses his powers after Blood absorbs them from him. However, Miss Martian returns with several teen heroes liberated from the Dark Side Club. After proposing membership to several of the heroes, the new team is formed: Wondergirl, Blue Beetle, and the now powerless Red Devil are joined by Kid Eternity and Static; Aquagirl and Miss Martian rejoin the team; and Bombshell decides to formally join. In Teen Titans #74 Red Devil/Eddie is apparently killed.

Titans (vol. 2, 2008 - present)

A second ongoing Teen Titans series, titled Titans, launched in April 2008 and is written by Judd Winick. Issue one was drawn by Ian Churchill and Norm Rapmund, issue 2 by Joe Benitez and Victor Llamas. The opening storyline follows the events of the Teen Titans East Special one-shot that was released in November 2007, revealing all of the members of Cyborg's team survived the attack, except Power Boy, dead after being impaled. The team's new line up consists of former New Teen Titans Nightwing, Flash, Donna Troy, Beast Boy, Raven, Cyborg, Red Arrow, and Starfire.

In the first story arc of the series, Trigon makes a series of attacks on every member, former or current, of the Teen Titans, and Trigon has 'another child' that, unlike Raven, will assist him in his attack. After reclaiming Titans Island and establishing a headquarters on the East River, Cyborg set out to create an East Coast Titans team. However, during a training session the team was brutally massacred by an unseen evil force. Though Cyborg survived the attack, Titans members past and present were attacked by demonic entities across the globe. Raven, sensing Trigon's presence once again, called upon her former Titans allies to defeat her fiendish father.

But after rescuing several Titans and questioning Trigon himself, the Titans learned that Trigon himself was not behind the attacks but rather has three children to prepare his second invasion for him. After investigating potential carriers of his children, the Titans realize the bestial assaults were actually orchestrated by Raven's three grown half brothers – Jacob, Jared and Jesse. Working together as a team, the Titans thwarted the Sons of Trigon and prevented Trigon's invasion plan. Following this adventure, Raven chose her adopted family over her biological family and Red Arrow decided to join his former teammates (although both he and Flash retain their JLA membership) - and the Titans were together as a team once again.

Following this, the team has settled themselves down at Titans Tower (supposedly the New York base), where they attempt to recover from recent events. While Dick and Kory attempt to make a decision on where their current relationship will lead, Raven and Beast Boy go out together on a "not-a-date". During this, Raven reveals that since she faced her brothers, she has begun to feel as if she is losing control and slipping back under the thrall of her father's powers. Although Beast Boy rejects the idea, he is unexpectedly blind-sided as Raven gives in to her darker side, under the influence of her half-brother's coaxing. Using her teleporting powers, she and the Sons of Trigon vanish, leaving a distraught Beast Boy behind to warn the others. Using a gem stone that carries Raven's pure essence within it, the Titans manage to free Raven of her father's evil, although there will always be the possibility of it happening again. As a result, Raven leaves each Titan with an amulet that can be used to cleanse any evil influence from her body.

Following this, Jericho, still inhabiting the body of Superboy's clone, Match, arrives, frantically asking for help due to the fact he cannot separate himself from Match's body. The current story features Jericho who has turned renegade again. Shortly after a struggle with Jericho, who it is revealed is under control of the numerous people that he has taken command of over the years, Nightwing resigns from the Titans, due to his new responsibilities in Gotham.

The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure

The Filmation adaptation of the Teen Titans.

The team's first animated appearance was in Teen Titans segments of the 1967 Filmation series The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, featuring Speedy, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and Aqualad. They are voiced by Pat Harrington, Jr., Tommy Cook, Julie Bennett and Jerry Dexter.

Super Friends

Dick Grayson's Robin is a regular character (alongside Batman) in every incarnation of the Super Friends cartoon series (1973-1986), and Cyborg also appeared on the series during its run as The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians (1985-1986).

New Teen Titans (TV series)

In 1983, Hanna-Barbera created an animated version of The New Teen Titans which was ultimately not picked up by ABC.

Anti-Drug commercial

Wonder Girl, Starfire, Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Kid Flash, and Protector (temporarily replacing Robin) appeared on a 1984 Nabisco anti-drug commercial.

DC animated universe

Though a Teen Titans team never actually appeared in the DC animated universe of television series which began in 1992, the team was referenced in two episodes of the Static Shock series. In "Hard as Nails" (2003), Batman tells Static that Robin is "with the Titans." "The green one" from the Titans (presumably Beast Boy) is mentioned in the episode "Romeo in the Mix" (2003).

Teen Titans (TV series)

A Teen Titans animated series ran on Cartoon Network from July 19, 2003 to January 16, 2006. Drawn in an anime-style based art form, the show featured a 1980s-era lineup of Robin(Dick Grayson), Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, and Cyborg as teenagers. Though the series adapted some Wolfman/Pérez storylines like "The Judas Contract" and "The Terror of Trigon" and featured versions of many other Titans comic book characters like Aqualad, Speedy, Deathstroke (named Slade), Bumblebee, and Terra, it followed its own continuity and introduced new characters. The show ended after five seasons wrapping up the final series with the movie Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, an animated film premiering on Cartoon Network on September 15, 2006.

The series spawned a related comic book — Teen Titans Go! — and three Teen Titans video games.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

At Comic-Con 2006, a Judas Contract animated movie was announced. Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, creators of The New Teen Titans were assigned to work on the direct-to-DVD movie. However, the film has been postponed due to a lack of a "broad fanbase appeal" to put it ahead of other projects.

Justice League: The New Frontier

The Titans appear in the animated film Justice League: The New Frontier.


Warner Bros. is also in development on a Teen Titans movie in which Robin is the only confirmed member so far. Akiva Goldsman & Mark Verheiden are writing it.
