Raven to follow Smallville?
With Smallville wrapping up soon, The CW and Warner Bros. are looking for something (anything) to fill the slot left by the tweaked Superman series. The Teen Titans might be a great team concept to look to, but according to Variety, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. TV, and The CW might be breaking up the team to focus on one – Raven.
“Raven” actually has some history at the CW: The character was featured in the animated Kids’ WB series “Teen Titans,” which ran for several years (including Kids’ WB’s brief run as the CW’s Saturday morning kids block). Tara Strong voiced Raven in the series, which also featured Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy and Cyborg.
