    Can't believe I forgot SBFF. I totally forgot the other appearance as well. Hmm, I guess she's been adapted more than Cassie.


    I don't think the 70s version really counts as Donna. If I remember correct her name was Drusilla or something, and she seemed to be Diana's biological sister.

    Garth hasn't done too shabby with being adapted but he's always welcome from my perspective. Its tough to imagine them using him over Kaldur/Jackson for a few reasons (larger power set, supervillain father, diversity quota) but I hope the doors not shut on Garth.

    Considering Donna's rapidly changing backstory that's still close enough.

    I think I'll wait for further confirmation of the filming date and location. I do dispute one claim made in the article:
    No, we saw a casting call earlier this week that we have speculated is for those four characters. The inclusion of Nightwing, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy was confirmed long before that. If a news item can;t get basic facts straight then why should I trust anything it claims?

    Sounds like production is far enough ahead that they can show something off in TV Guide....

    This seems to be the youngest version of Raven that we've ever seen as a Titan. So, by contrast, what's the reasoning behind having a Dick Grayson/Nightwing who is in his late 20s (or older)? This makes Dick older than Bruce Wayne was when he adopted the Batman identity (at 26 years old according to Frank Miller's Batman: Year One). This only makes sense to me if Titans is in the same continuity as the DCEU films. If it was up to me, Dick would be in the range of his early to mid 20s.

    I think they just want to emphasize Dick as an experienced, adult, vigilante as Nightwing here, probably so he can be "team dad."

    Seeing them cast much younger than I expected for Raven has me wondering how they'll go with Dick. Ideally, I'd hope they aimed for college age. Seeing Nightwing as old enough to be the team foster dad would take a lot of getting used to.

    We had hints with the casting call for the show's leads (although false names were used). It broke down like this:
    - 'John' (Dick Grayson): male, late 20s to early 30s, Caucasian (Drake Bell, age 31, might have the roll).
    - 'Casey' (Starfire): female, 20s, open ethnicity.
    - 'Jax' (Beast Boy): male, mid to late teens, open ethnicity.
    - 'Sarah' (Raven): female, mid teens, open ethnicity (Teagan Croft has been confirmed).

    Thanks. That's a bit short of Kory's stated height of 6'4", about half-a-head taller than Dick Grayson; however, such alterations are not unusual in adaptations; the best available actor for the part is not always a close physical match to the character. That puts her at the same height or slightly taller than Drake Bell, who might be Titans' Nightwing.

    Beast Boy is one of the four confirmed Titans on this show, alongside Raven, Starfire, and Nightwing :).
