Teen Titans (2019) is an 2019 Live-action adventure, drama, comedic and suspenseful comic book film and is the first live-action iteration of the beloved superhero team based on both the comics and original T.V anime series to be included in the DC Extended Universe as well as the second of the two sequels to Justice League: Part II. With the steady slow decline of "Teen Titans Go!" on Cartoon Network compared to the DCEU's lasting effect on the box office, the Teen Titans had yet to be brought to the silver screen, let alone a live action adaption. Luckily, with the release of both Justice League films, the possibility of a eventual Teen Titans film became more and more likely until the post-credit scene for Justice League 2 was leaked, causing Zack Snyder to confirm the speculations. With that being said, the film had begun principal photography around the time “Justice League: Part II” had hit theaters......
.....which meant that an late 2019 release was inevitable.
The film is written and directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Zack Snyder and distributed by both Warner Bros., and D.C Entertainment.
Cast members will include Zac Efron, Cailee Spaeny, Ray Fisher, Jessica Alba, Cole Sprouse, Steven R. McQueen, etc.

.....In the midst of a cosmic realm....
.....somewhat similar to what ours is like but in a different scenery.....
.....there lies this world called Azerath, one of the few planets that lie amongst the closest dimension. Over 900 years ago, the followers of the first Azar were led to a place between all dimensions where they founded the Temple Azarath. It was Azar's plan to expel all evil from the Azarathians so that the demons couldn't use the dark energy to be fully re-established, and then Azar could finally kill it once and for all.
Those plans hit a snag once a beautiful Empress came along seeking help by the people of Azerath and she was known by her people as Arella (Emilia Clarke), formally known as Angela Roth.
But after an extended time of darkness, Arella gave birth to and became the pacifist mother a beautiful baby daughter daughter and in time, she called her.......Raven.....
.....only her former name would be Rachel Roth.
Despite of the unknown origin to the Empress's child, their lives together were peaceful even with their people.....at least, the people....
.....that didn't fear little Raven.
For someone who was one of theirs, she didn’t seem to be one for getting a lot of craved attention.
There was, however, a reason for this......one of which only Arella could possibly understand.
Despite Arella's efforts, her daughter was bound to a great evil foretold by a prophecy which would entitle the subjugation and destruction of all life. Arella forever gave Raven her love, even knowing what she was destined to become: a vessel for the cause of all destruction. The end result was set to be inevitable, for even she could not escape the cruel fate that had been destined upon her since the end of her childhood.
One day on Azerath, the inevitable day finally came along and that was the day that all hell would break loose.
A solar eclipse had blocked out their sun as the radiant beams of heat that came through to their planet sent everyone into a panic.
Arella unfortunately was the last one to look out from her balcony and see the horror that was soon to be unleashed before them. Just like everyone else, she was horrified and petrified for what this meant, not because it was a regular eclipse or anything like that.......
.....it was because she knew the REAL threat on hand here. She knew what and who was coming.
With time running against them, Arella rushed back behind her before zipping through endless hallways. Eventually, she came at a complete stop, gracing upon the presence of Athena through a statue.
Regardless of what her belief in the Greek gods were, if there was any time to call them out for aid or assistance, now might’ve been a few seconds too late.
But that didn’t stop her.
Arella: Athena.....goddess of wisdom......Have our warriors prep for any attack.
Knowing how close their eventual fate had become, they had to make last minute preparations just to be sure their last stand would be their noblest one of all time.
Arella: Azar. Seal off any entrance to the palace.
Azar: But, Arella........Raven's whereabouts.....
Azar: She's been more questionable during her lessons. She---she went to the temple of Zinthos to meditate—
Arella: No......HE'LL find her there.
Cutting to the temple of Zinthos, young Raven, age 12, was in meditation chanting.....
Raven: Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Azerath. Netrian. Zin---
She coughed and looked up seeing a wall light a fire tracing a simple....and Raven grabbed her throat as she saw a pear of four...
Yes....the moment has come. You are the key to the earth. You will open the portal. And bring about the end of the world. If your mother hadn't in hadn't interfered 10 years ago....you would have been mine long ago....and now....you will be...as will the earth. And the WHOLE universe!
Arella and some warriors of Azerath stormed in and saw what was happening
Arella: *Rushes* GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BEAST!!
She grabbed her just as a demonic hand reached out for her
Give her to ME!!!
They all rushed out as the temple burnt down but the skies above Azerath began to turn red like fire and blood and fiery demons rose from the grounds people fled in terror
And soon the eclipse blasts down a dark force which was almost too much for Azerath it would soon fall apart and burn down
Arella carrying her Raven saw the horror that was happening
Raven: Mother? What's happening?
Arella: The we all fear that might come. And it's here. Azerath will soon be soon be destroyed and....your father....will get what he came for unless....
It was silent for a moment then Arella walked down to the thrown room
Arella: My people. As many of you can see....Azerath is dying....the demon lord Trigon will soon crumble us all in his grip. And the same will happen to every planet in the universe. Starting....with the one called earth. And so....to insure hope and survival of our race.....my daughter will carry that hope with her on her journey to earth itself
Man: My lady that's suicide. The portal rests deep within the bowls of that world.
Arella: My daughter will keep the portal closed at any means nessercary. Without her....Trigon has no chance of entering earth's galaxy.
Woman: It's possible the demon could reach her in dreams and images. You said it yourself milday.
Arella: Not if she meditates.
Knowing how critical this moment would become, Arella turns her attention to Raven. This was perhaps the last time that she was going to embrace her daughter, to see her again, to express how much she loves her. She wish she could stay with her.....
......but the fate she was destined to suffer couldn’t be outrun.
Arella: My sweet Raven, listen to me: our hopes and dreams will rest within you. You must return to your home-world......and keep the bond between HIM and you sealed tight. Please.
Raven: Mother......I can't leave you......
She kneels down to her.
Arella: You must......it's important your fat--Trigon never gets his hands on you. You are his only way of reaching the earth.
Raven: Then come with me.
Arella: I wish I can. But this is only resorted for you.
Raven cried and hugged her mother.
Arella: I shall miss you too, my little Raven.
Raven: It’s not fair.
Arella: It never is.
In some time a circle was formed and Raven sat in the center with Arella and subjects in hand to hand chanting
Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos.
Whatever they were doing they had better do it fast cause as we speak....
.....the doors were being burned down.
They chanted on and on and on and so on and just then....an energy force was casted on the center of the circle and Raven....
Arella: Goodbye, my Raven. Our only hope is in you.
And just then the doors were blasted off as Arella looked over and a demon figure with the same four glowing red eyes and a shadow covering his face
The blast force from the eclipse launched a shock wave with fiery force and....
.....BLOWS all of Azerath away.....
......and just then......
....Raven found herself in......CRIME Ally......
......of Gotham City.
~Title opening: Teen Titans~
5 years later....
.....It was 7:43PM Eastern time
Located deep within the heart of the sister city of Gotham City Bludhaven is what appears to be a fairly suitable and beautiful looking viewpoint of a city that more or less resembled that Chicago, Illinois. The unfortunate thing is....
....just like Chicago the seemingly peaceful and calm tranquility that came over the city isn't to be mistaken The official residing place of the vigilante Nightwing was far from a....reasonable place to stay
Speaking of Nightwing.....
....over on the roof of his said apartment there is the famous or infamous Richard "Dick" Grayson (Zac Efron) sitting right then and there near the edge strapping up his boots...
....ready for his traditional night out on the town.
At least, this is HIS way of spending his night out in town
A wise man once told me that Ever since I was a child I was seen with such luminosity of spirit....that it was truly visible---
He straps up the other boot.
Some indefinable and yet unmistakable fire at the very core of my being that allowed me to survive and thrive where so many others.......had failed.
After a pause, he finishes strapping up his other boot and sighs heavily before standing up.......
After for the longest time.......people seemed to believe that the very spark that always defined me seems to have vanished.......and that I have once again become.......somewhat paralyzed by the idea of falling......let alone FAILING.
Staring out to the moonlight rising over the bleak horizon of the night sky, he smiles at the sight.....
Hehehe......whenever someone's asked what power they wish they had flying is always at the top of the list. But I have to admit I've learned to love falling.....
.....before slapping the mask over his face.
.......because you never know if you can fly unless you take the risk of falling.
Taking one methodical step at a time while approaching the edge, he finally takes a foot off the edge of his roof.....
.....and then falls off completely, going into free fall.
After diving through the air for only a minute, he spins a full 360 through the air and sticks his escrima sticks into the wall of the building behind him to slow down his fall.....
.....until he got into another comfortable position where he leaped off and once again proceeds into free fall.
Right below him, his own signature Batcycle (if you will) was already off riding on the highway with its own portable remote control system. Pretty soon, though.....
.....Nightwing landed firmly back down on his motorcycle, immediately revving the engines and taking back control of his bike as he drifted off the nearest avenue he came across.
Keeping his eyes laser focused on the road, he simply tapped on his arm, bringing up a virtual screen of......
Nightwing: Victor. What’s the story upstairs?
You shouldn’t be too far from it now.
Nightwing: How positive are you?
Hey, my trackers are satellite based. Most of the time, I’m never wrong.
Nightwing: I’ll see when I get there, man. Sooner we get Slade, the better.
Just as he cuts the transmission off, still raging through the streets of Bludhaven, he kept his eyes locked on the road until a certain rumbling from up above caught his attention. Finally taking his eyes off the road, he looks up towards the might sky as the faint sound of rumbling continues until an object, which appears to look like a meteor......of sorts......
......bursts through the atmosphere and starts hurdling down to solid ground.
It suddenly breezes past Nightwing on the road, not to mention countless other cars, as Dick suddenly flips a wheelie on his bike and lands the back wheel on the sidewalk to stop himself. Amidst the endless blurb of car horns sounding off, his eyes stayed glued on the burning “meteor” as it slowly hurdled its way down.....
......out the outskirts of the city......
......and landing on the terrain of Mt. Blüdhaven.
This was unusual.
But weird enough, Dick knew he’d have to investigate sooner rather than later.
Nightwing: Oh well......duty calls.
Soon as he released the clutch on his bike, he revs in the engine, spins his bike around in the OPPOSITE direction to avoid the pissed-off drivers and rode off to check out that impact on Mt. Blüdhaven. The only thing is......
.....the path from the city to Mt. Blüdhaven was a freaking half an hour ride.
But that mattered little to Dick Grayson.
After spending not so much of a penny as a dollar trying to get to the mountain, he FINALLY arrives at the area of the impact where the “meteor” crashed. Stepping off his motorbike with care, he didn’t want to take any chances.
He quickly whipped out his electric escrima sticks for protection and stepping over the edge of the crater, he came across.....
.....a moderate sized space pod......
......covered in dust.
So it in fact WASN’T a meteor. But either way, this did cause a pause for concern.
Nightwing: Hey Vic? You still there?
Nightwing: You're not gonna believe this....but either the next Superman just landed....or we got a meteor hit on Mt Bludhaven
Give me a visual
Nightwing pressed the center on his mask uploading a visual screen detecting heat signatures
At the "T" tower Cyborg himself on their OWN batcomputer the visual screen was uploaded to it and Cyborg could see everything Nightwing see's
Cyborg: Yo that's one big ass hole.
Nightiwing: Bruce said Clark made a larger hole
He slid down the crater as the dust cleared and Dick was finally able to get a clear visual of the space pod....
Nightwing: Whoa....tell me you're seeing this.
Every part of it. What is it?
Nightwing: I don't know....let's see if I can get it open. Somehow.
If you asked me, I'd analyze the pattern.
Turning his analyzing data on it calculated three point mere seconds of heat impact that it must have picked up from the atmosphere
Then soon calculated an opening
He pressed on it which the air sound startled Dick
Nightwing: Aah! *Falls back*
Hahaha! Don't tell me that scared you.
Nightwing: Shut up.
Soon as the pod opens steam blew out at cleared it revealed....
....a young red head light orange skinned woman (Jessica Elba) about Dick's age who was "Naked", but unconscious and ball wrapped with her arms around her legs.
And from the looks of it......she was tall.
Nightwing: My god....it's a girl.
And I guess she forgot her jammies
Nightwing: For real, Vic? Argh. Look, I'm bringing her to the tower. But I need something to cover her up.
Umm, Nightwing.....that would have to wait.
Almost immediately as soon as he said that, the orange tinted woman’s body twitched once, startling Dick.
Nightwing: She just moved.
Once again, the body moved yet again this time jerking around more violently than before giving Dick the indication that he should get the hell out of there.
But he didn’t.
I think she heard you.
Nightwing: Yeah, no s__t.
Shouldn’t you move out the way, man?!
He ignored Victors plea as the body continued to jerk around in a rather uncomfortable and contorted fashion forcing Dick to look away momentarily.....
......until it just stops.
Nightwing: Still here. It stopped. She’s still looks deader than a doornail, though.
Another second or two passes, and the body of this female quickly and forcefully bursts up off the ground, coming face to face with Nightwing.....forcing him to trip over himself back in the dirt in both astonishment and surprise.
Nightwing: Ok.....she’s up again.
Her eyes were glowing a bright fluorescent green color with this blank angry stare on her face as she reaches her arms out towards him and telepathically grabs Dick by the throat.
He tries his damnest to break the hold she has on him but it became clear very quickly that this was no HUMAN he was dealing with.
Unfortunately, he didn’t have much time to process it either as he quickly gets chucked out of the crater as he groans loudly.....
.....just as he sees this bright glimmer of green light fade into the distance.
She was heading into the city.
Nightwing: Oh s__t. Uhh, Victor?!
Don't tell me.....she's heading for the city......
Nightwing: She may not be a Superman but she's just as strong as him.
Then let's hope they have Kryptonite from where she's from?
Nightwing: That might not be necessary.
Point taken. I'm on my way.
Nightwing rushed to his bike and proceed after the powered woman
Meanwhile on the roof of Titans tower a hooded figure (Raven Age 17) was in deep meditation as instructed from 5 years ago
Raven: Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Az--
She then coughed again and woke up.....
A sight of horrific destruction on the earth
(Don't worry she's just having a vision she did in the comics)
Skies were burning waters became lava and every city....
A demonic face roaring flashed in Raven's sight she screamed but.....
.....she woke up again just to see everything was still normal
Everything in one peace but Raven wasn't fully relieved
That vision to her meant that whatever destroyed Azerath five years ago.....
....was staring to try and reach out for her
She turned away and went through a CLOSED door (Trust me she CAN do that)
Cutting to the heart of the city cars passed by as people walked on but....
....the strange alien red head nude woman appeared from a side view
And the firs to notice her was....
.....of course a group of punks
Punk # 1: Hey....looks like Christmas came early this year!
Punk # 2: Well shoot my brains out. I think I'm in love.
Punk # 3: Get in line I saw her first.
The trio thugs approached her and she grew more angry with her eyes glowing pure green
(You guys better turn back and I don't mean for her sake I mean yours)
Punk # 2: Hey Babe. Come to grant my birthday wish?
Punk # 3: How about a little road action?
Red head woman: Guta!
Punk # 1: I'll take that as a YES!
They JUST were about to grab but strange girl yelled out
And the screen cuts to the ground only showing shadows of everyone and green lights casting on the ground she BEAT them all up and the guys screamed in agony
Let's just say they got a hell of a LOT more than momma spanking
The screen shows them down on the ground with bruises broken ribs and one of them.....
....a leg twist
(I warned you guys)
Just then Nightwing road back into the city just to see Cyborg fly with his jet pack and he just landed as Nightwing stopped his moterbike
Cyborg: Any sign of our new hot friend?
Nightwing: She was here. Look.
Victor looked down to where he was pointing to see burning bare foot prints glowing green
Cyborg: And I thought my dad had a hot foot.
Nightwing: *Scoffs* You haven't seen the REAL hotfoot ‘till you've seen Jason Todd.
Cyborg: Jason Todd?
Nightwing: Now's not the time. Maybe later though.
Suddenly, there was commotion: Typical civilian chatter erupting from behind both of them which the two quickly became invested in. This entire crowd of civilians came gathering around in this crowded circle in order to see something.....
......and.....that pretty much gave away what the two were looking for.
Cyborg: That ain’t good.
Nightwing: No kidding.
Cyborg: No, seriously. Her bio readings are spiking and whatever anger management she’s having is only making it worse.
Nightwing: Then why we standing here?
Funny they say that......as that crowd of civilians quickly disperse away from that one little area.....
......and there she was, that same redhead girl waltzing around swinging her arms frantically like she had nowhere to go, yelling an indescribable language out loud, startling the crowd of civilians back.
But really, in reality, her arms were bound together.....
.....and she was trying to get them off.
So believe it or not, the only way she could muster to get them off is by hitting something......and boy, did she hit hard.
She literally chucks her arms towards a departing taxi cab as it spins frantically onto the road, causing other cars to crash in a combustible burning pile metal.
That wasn’t the half of it.
This hitting process continued further once she located the nearest building next to her.....
.....which just so happened to a random pizza parlor.
Leaping towards the building, she, AGAIN, waltz her arms towards the support beam holding the roof in place, startling the civilians who were already up there.
She attacks the support beam again, lashing out an unknown language out loud.
She does it again......
.....until that support beam literally goes wobbling in its end, barely holding the building on its head.
Exhausted, the girl stopped......for about 30 seconds. Just as she lifts her hands up, prepared to strike at the building and potentially bring it down.....
.....a blast resonates from behind her and it hits her in the back of head, launching her face first into the concrete.
Cyborg was the one who shot her, curtesy of his Sonic arm cannon.
Nightwing: Nice shot.
But almost immediately sensing where the shot came from, the redhead again bolts herself off the ground and immediately snaps her head back at Dick and Victor.
After briefly pulling a smirk on her face, she cracks her neck on both sides.....and then growls.
Cyborg: I think we just made it worse.
She leaps over at Cyborg, but luckily, he rips off his gray hoodie and folds up his shield on his right arm which prevents her from getting through to him.....
But at the same time, he kept his eyes on that pizza parlor, for that support beam holding the entire roof was seconds from falling.
As he shrugs her off to the side, he quickly flies towards the wobbling support beam of the pizza parlor and BARELY caught it in his head with his bionic grips. After a few attempts of twiddling, Cyborg was finally able to steady the support beam long enough for the ones on top to readjust themselves.
Man: Wha—what’s happening?
Cyborg: Don’t mind me, just GO!
No point in arguing as they did exactly what he said, piling off the roof one at a time.
That WOULD leave Nightwing to face off this woman.
Nightwing: Look.....we mean you no harm.....we just want to help. And.....
Her leg approached by the camera pointing at Nigthwing
Nightwing: You, uh.....hehe.....GOTTA ...... got to be cold without.....I mean I---
His constant blushing over the alien woman’s stunning beauty did little to help the situation considering how she didn’t know where she was or even who any of these people really are. And if anything, she felt like this random little wannabe was wasting his time with her.
And of course, he caught onto it really fast.
Nightwing: You don’t understand anything I’m saying, do ya?
His curiosity and his daringness to go easy left him wide open for the alien girl to fire that familiar green projectile blast as it knocks Nightiwing back across the street as he flips over himself and hits a car. Carving himself halfway through the actual car caused the car alarm to go off.
Dick was going to have defend himself in some way.
Nightwing: Uhh.....and I thought Bruce punched harder.
Or maybe not.
He heard a yell as the alien woman blasted at him
Dick had no choice but to defend himself he took his electric sticks and countered every green star bolt she blasted
Alien Woman: Guta Vata!
Nightwing: What?! Ooh!
One star bolt hit him forcing him in a window of jewelry store startling an old man
Nightwing: Go! Run!
The man ran out the back as the Alien Woman turned and was about to leave....
.....She growled and turned
Nightwing: Time for your medicine
He threw one of his shock sticks only for her to blast it to dust and growled in anger at him
Nightwing: Uhh....heheheh....I was just hoping you catch it....
She blasted him again and Nightwing ran to dodge the bolts and soon....
.....he reached her position and knocked her aside with his other shock stick
And surprisingly knocked her aside
He looked down at her thinking he may knocked her out
Nightwing: Better get you something decent
He had just had enough time to run to that same pizza parlor and "Burrowed" (Lol) a table sheet to cover her body up but by the time he got back.....
.....she was gone....
Nightwing: And of course....She's gone
....Or was she....
.....Dick looked back just to see she was pointing her biding green glowing hands at him
Nightwing: Wait! Please! *Drops the sheet*
Alien Woman: Guta!
Nightwing: No look! *Shows her a lock pick* Let me help with that binding.
She didn't trust him....
....but powered down just for Nightwing to unhook those bindings they fell by their feet as the woman rubbed her wrists
Nightwing: There. Now we can---MM!
The alien woman suddenly grabbed his head and KISSED him?!
....she pushed him down
Alien Woman: IF YOU WISH NOT TO BE DESTROYED YOU WILL LEAVE ME ALONE!
And she flew off
(WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?!?!?!?!)
Dick was just absolutely dumbstruck This entire situation felt mind numbing and confusing at best not only because it happened right hell out of nowhere but.....
.....what was up with that kiss
More coming soon......
