TNT cancels plan for Teen Titans live action series

(DC Comics)

Here’s one planned superhero show that isn’t coming to TV after all: That live-action Teen Titans reboot. 

TNT was developing the DC Comics title into a series called Titans (or possibly Blackbirds) that would focus on Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Robin a.k.a. Nightwing). Plus, Starfire, Raven, Barbara Gordon/Oracle and the duo Hawk & Dove were also expected to be in the show.

Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (Batman Forever, A Beautiful Mind) was tapped to write the pilot.
