Intriguing Logline For The DCU’s Live-Action TEEN TITANS Movie Surfaces

Some intriguing new intel on the DCU’s recently announced Teen Titans movie has just surfaced recently from Batman-News, via Production Weekly.

A logline for the film has surfaced which reads:

The Teen Titans are further apart than ever before…until Damian Wayne recruits Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and the new Kid Flash to join him in a fight against his own grandfather, Ra’s al Ghul.

If you’re unfamiliar with Production Weekly and their loglines, Production Weekly (often abbreviated as PW), is a subscription-based publication with an emphasis on the film and television sector. It serves as a premier resource for keeping tabs on new motion picture and television productions.

Production Weekly functions as a valuable resource for crew workers, suppliers, and other auxiliary workers in the industry who want to keep abreast of what’s coming down the pipeline and maybe even pitch their services for upcoming projects.

One of the key items that Production Weekly offers is an extensive database on upcoming film projects, which includes a logline, a succinct (one to two sentence) synopsis that captures the essence of the narrative of a film.

In terms of the Teen Titans film, it sounds as if the film might be taking inspiration from the 2016 DC Rebirth run of Teen Titans from Benjamin Percy  and Jonboy Meyers.

In that run, Damian Wayne is out to prove himself to both his father and grandfather- that he’s capable of inheriting the legacy of The Dark Knight and that he’s nothing like his grandfather, Ra’s al Ghul.

Things kick off with Ra’s sending Damian a message on his birthday, that a new crop of recruits for The League of Assassins has just graduated and that they’ve been sent out to kill the next generation of superheroes as a test of their skills. 

The series becomes a competition between Damian and Ra’s to see if the former has really shed his killer ways and become a hero like his father.

Longtime Teen Titan comic book readers and fans of the animated series are already up in arms about the fact that it sounds as if the film could skip the Dick Grayson era of the team and that the logline makes no mention of Cyborg.

We should caution that the loglines for films on Production Weekly are not always 100% accurate so put this one in the rumor category for now.

However, with DC Studios co-chair James Gunn’s penchant for debunking rumors expect him to weigh in soon if this is false. Likewise, if he remains silent, then there’s probably some element of truth to the logline.
