While we have seen many cartoon iteration of the famed DC supergroup, The Teen Titans, we have yet to see a live action version of them. We’ve had the Cartoon Network’s kid-friendly version of the team, as well as countless direct to video movies released via On Demand and Blu-Ray. The Teen Titans have been going through development hell for quite some time. For the last four years, there have been numerous attempts to bring about a live-action version of them to television.

Ever since Warner Bros. announced a solo Batman film after Batman V. Superman was released, it seems the film’s production has had nothing but trouble. First, Ben Affleck stepped down from directing. A new director was found in Matt Reeves, but now Warner Bros. has announced that the script is apparently being rewritten from scratch. What is going on?? (more…)
With a full fledged sequel to Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Man of Steel (reportedly) back on the DC Extended Universe’s ever fluctuating film slate, the assumption was that Zack would be back to bring the next Superman solo movie to the big screen. Well, that might not be the case. Collider is reporting that ‘sources’ close to the Warner Bros. Superhero films are saying that the top choice is for another director to helm a second outing for the Man of Tomorrow (in the current franchise.) (more…)
