We were really excited for a Teen Titans series at TNT, but after months of nothing from the network, we’ve found out why… they’ve killed the project.

TNT President Kevin Reilly told the Television Critics Association that the project wasn’t going where they wanted it.

The Teen Titans originally appeared in The Brave and the Bold #54 (1964). The team was made up of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, and over the years the team expanded to include Wonder Girl, Speedy, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven.  Interestingly, it looks like TNT was hoping to make the series “popcorn four-quadrant entertainment” – meaning it should be light and appeal to all four major demographics (male, female, above AND below the age of 25). The network may have passed because (according to Deadline) the network is moving to darker offerings for viewers.

Perhaps TNT should take a look at The Judas Contract written in 1984 by Marv Wolfman and George Perez.

See, you can tell Terra is evil because she’s smoking…

Well, our hopes of a DC Television Multiverse seem to be shrinking more and more every day. With CBS’s Supergirl not wanting to cross over with The Flash and Arrow, and the death of this series, we may need to be happy with what we have, and hope another network sees the golden opportunity of a Teen Titans series. Since The CW is happy locking down three days of the week with superhero shows (Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Thursday), Monday and Friday are still open…

    Monday’s are Supergirl and Gotham.
    We are also getting Preacher and Sandman plus the Marvel lineup on Netflix.
    I think our SuperHero fix will be satisfied for a while.
