DC Comics and Robert Ortiz' production web series, Titans is out on Netflix which is not stuck in misery like the previous DC projects like Batman. The recently released web-series, Titans is based on the superhero team which runs parallel in Batman's territory.
The trailer released by the makers showed a dark themed web-series featuring Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Koriand'r (Anna Diop), Gar Logan (Ryan Potter) and Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson). And soon after witnessing DC's logo, fans expected it to be something full of misery and violence.
However, DC Comics' web series is way more intriguing than its trailer. Although, it contains over the top violence which may be inappropriate for some users but the story is pretty engaging. Titans follow young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
Talking about the actors, Thwaites makes for an excellent Robin, the former protégé of Batman, with whom he has had a falling out, the reason of which is revealed piecemeal over the season.
Bruce Wayne aka Batman's character is seen absent in the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) web-series, Titans.
Also, Diop plays the role of Starfire and looks completely delightful in her role. Diop's character Kory is the most self-assured of the lot even though she has reasons aplenty to be the exact opposite.
Sooner or later, all of the above mentioned DC characters form a team for fighting the evil in their city.
The makers have tried to give a make-over to the typical friendly Teen Titans for turning them into the supernatural beast that you will see in the web-series Titan. There is no doubt in the fact that the series shows immense display of violence which may disturb a few viewers.
As per our final verdict, if you are comfortable with excess bloodshed and broken bones then you may find a way to gulp in the complete DC Comics' web-series. We will like to award 6 out of 10 stars to DC's Titans which is available on Netflix.
