The new Titans series coming from DC television is reportedly changing its production location to Canada.
Filming on the much anticipated series was slated to begin on September 25th in Atlanta, GA but apparently plans have changed. Produced by Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schecter, Titans will still keep its production start date despite the location move for a released date that is reported to come in 2018.
With news of the reported move, the casting call has apparently released online giving fans an idea of what we can expect from the main characters of the series. Check out the descriptions below:
[John Crossland]: Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD
[SARAH]: Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends. Haunted by a dark force inside her, Sarah experiences violent episodes that she cannot understand or control. She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR
[Casey]; Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR
[JAX]: Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR”
Despite the codenames, it’s no secret the main characters in Titans will be Dick Grayson, Raven and Starfire. The fourth character description is a bit more vague especially since it says ‘asian preferred’ despite the open ethnicity note. It’s nice to know that the producers are open to any race playing three out of the four series regulars. Hopefully the show will be a diverse one.
Titans will follow a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the series, Dick Grayson will emerge from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others. Are you excited for this series?
