Netflix Scores International Streaming Rights to DC Universe's 'Titans'
Netflix has just closed a deal with Warner Bros TV for international streaming rights to Titans, an 11-episode live-action drama series based on DC Comics' Teen Titans franchise.
In the States, Titans is slated for launch on October 12, via DC's own direct-to-consumer digital streaming platform, DC Universe, as its first live-action original series. Now, just ahead of the series' American release, DC Comics fans everywhere else in the world would be glad to know that the big red N will be hauling it overseas for us. The deal is similar to those of Netflix's other co-licensed titles, including Star Trek: Discovery (co-licensed with CBS All Access) and Black Lightning (also co-licensed with Warner Bros TV).
If you followed the comics or the cartoons, you'd have a general idea of what this new live-action Titans has in store for us. The series follows Robin, Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy—a group of young soon-to-be superheroes from every corner of the DC Universe—in the struggle against a plot that threatens the entire planet.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Alan Ritchson as Hawk.
There's no word yet on an official launch date for the Philippines, but expect updates and more information from Netflix.
