TEEN TITANS Live-Action Movie Officially Moving Forward At DC Studios With SUPERGIRL: WOMAN OF TOMORROW Writer

There have been rumblings this might be in the works, but a live-action Teen Titans movie is officially a go at DC Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms playwright turned feature scribe Ana Nogueira has been tapped to pen the screenplay after impressing studio bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran with her work on Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow

Nogueira was quietly hired to pen a Supergirl movie for Warner Bros. when the studio was developing a Sasha Calle-led The Flash spin-off. The Scarlet Speedster’s solo outing was in post-production at the time but the project was scrapped when Gunn and Safran took charge of DC Studios and moved on from Walter Hamada’s planned DCEU slate.

Many of you will know Nogueira best for starring in The Vampire DiariesThe Michael J. Fox Show, and The Blacklist. However, she’s also a budding writer, penning the Broadway play Which Way to the Stage and adapting author Alice Sola Kim’s short story Mothers, Lock Up Your Daughters for Warner Bros. Discovery.

Unfortunately, the trade doesn’t shed any additional light on DC Studios’ Teen Titans plans so, as we write this, your guess is as good as ours when it comes to which heroes will make up the team’s roster. 

It’s clearly very early days for the movie, anyway, so decisions like that are probably a long way off. Milly Alcock, who was recently cast as the DCU’s Supergirl, is 23 so probably won’t be among the heroes assembling in this project (unlike Titans, we’re hoping they’re actually teens). 

Initially debuting in 1964, the team has a storied history in the DC Universe. The 2003 series, Teen Titans, brought together iconic characters such as Robin (Dick Grayson), Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy, and Raven under the guidance of writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. The series focused on the personal and heroic growth of its members as they balanced their lives as teenagers with their responsibilities as heroes.

Notable storylines have included battles against foes like Deathstroke, Trigon, and the Brotherhood of Evil.

With Damian Wayne set to be introduced as a 10-year-old in The Brave and the Bold, it’s possible he’ll take Dick’s place in this version of the team. Ultimately, it’s too soon to say and we wouldn’t anticipate seeing this one in theaters until 2026 or 2027 at the earliest. No director is currently attached.
