DC ‘Titans’ TV Series Casts Its Raven With Teagan Croft
The live-action DC Titans series remains something a mystery, even after announcement of its DC digital home, but we have our first hero. Meet the new Raven, as young star Teagan Croft takes the team’s demonic role.
Per Deadline, Croft will play Raven as “the daughter of a demon,” and “a powerful empath who must keep her emotions in check or risk unleashing her demonic side.” Here’s the synopsis for the series overall:
“Titans” follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. “Titans” is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Currently eyed for 2018, the new live-action Titans will be written by Akiva Goldsman, DC boss Geoff Johns and DC TV leader Greg Berlanti. The initial synopsis only listed Dick Grayson, Starfire and Raven by name, though Johns hinted over Twitter that comic staple Beast Boy would be making an appearance as well:
The initial press release included a classic cover for The New Teen Titans that features Raven, Starfire, Kid Flash, Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Wonder Girl, though Kid Flash already appears on The CW’s Flash, while Cyborg was prominently elevated to the live-action Justice League. Not only that, but the original TNT Titans script was said to feature Dick Grayson as Robin (a Boston detective!), along with Barbara Gordon (using a wheelchair, but not called “Oracle”) and Hawk and Dove, with Raven and Starfire showing up at the pilot’s end.
We’ll likely learn more in the coming weeks, but who Titans should DC’s new drama cast next?
