A live-action Teen Titans movie is in the work as part of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU.

No further details are known.

The live-action Teen Titans movie joins Gunn’s five DCU flicks in development including Superman, Brave and the Bold, Swamp Thing, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, and The Authority.

How about Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke?

What’s interesting about a live-action Teen Titans movie happening is that Deathstroke is the team’s villain who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2 comic book back in December 1980.

Well, James Gunn happens to be buds with Joe Manganiello who played Deathstroke briefly in the DCEU.

It’s known Gunn is bringing back certain actors and characters from the DCEU including his wife Jennifer Holland, his brother Sean Gunn, the Peacemaker cast, John Cena, Viola Davis and even Xolo MaridueƱa from Blue Beetle, so why not Manganiello?

Joe Manganiello recently touched upon a Deathstroke return but he said Gunn told him to “let it go,” which sounds in regards to Manganiello’s ideas for a solo film, so we’ll have to see what happens.

Massive popularity with Teen Titans Go!

The Teen Titans also first appeared in an issue of Brave and the Bold back in 1964, which is the title of Gunn’s DCU Batman movie that Andy Muschietti is supposed to be directing featuring the son of Bruce Wayne, Damian Wayne. In the comics, Damian becomes Robin and eventually joins the Teen Titans.

The Teen Titans also got really big with Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! animated series which aired for a whopping 394 episodes starting back in 2013, with a movie released in 2018.

The team features a variety of characters but the most well-known version, again thanks to the animated series, is Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven and Starfire. Additional members have included Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl, and Speedy.

There was also the live-action Titans series which aired for four seasons featuring Nightwing, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, Red Hood, Wonder Girl, Hawk and Dove, and Connor Kent Superboy.
