“Teen Titans” live-action movie joins new DC Studios lineup

DC's Titans are coming to James Gunn and Peter Safran's superhero roster.

Teen Titans Go! ... to the new DC universe.

The James Gunn- and Peter Safran-led DC Studios is adding a live-action Teen Titans movie to its roster, which already includes multiple films like next year's Superman and the Brave and the Bold Batman title, as well as TV shows like the animated Creature Commandos and the Themyscira-set Paradise Lost.

Ana Nogueira, who's working on the Milly Alcock-starring Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow movie, has been tasked with writing the screenplay, EW has learned and The Hollywood Reporter first reported.

The Teen Titans are a group of young heroes made up of the protégés of the DC heavy hitters. First introduced in the comics in the 1960s, the lineup included Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, and Wonder Girl. However, the most recognizable version of the team these days is Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy, thanks to the popular animated 2003 series Teen Titans, as well as the 2013 cartoon Teen Titans Go! The latter spawned the 2018 film Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.

This isn't the first time this squadron came to live action, which happened most recently with 2018's Titans. The show originally premiered on the DC Universe streaming platform in 2018 with Brenton Thwaites playing Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Anna Diop playing Starfire, Teagan Croft playing Raven, and Ryan Potter playing Beast Boy. The show eventually made its way to HBO Max but was canceled prior to its fifth season.

Gunn and Safran's new plan for the DC universe on screen begins with this year's seven-episode animated show Creature Commandos and continues with the slate's first big movie, 2025's Superman, starring David Corenswet as the title hero.

A number of shows and movies will connect to tell the first phase of an ongoing story, titled Gods and Monsters, while other works, like the sequel to the Robert Pattinson-led The Batman (recently delayed to 2026), will be standalone projects.
