James Gunn’s DCU Has A ‘Teen Titans’ Movie In The Works From ‘Supergirl’ Writer

When James Gunn and Peter Safran announced the first chapter of their new DC Studios, titled “Gods and Monsters”, they made it clear that there would be more projects to be revealed later. Well, later is here, and it’s also go time for the Teen Titans who will be getting their own live-action movie.

THR confirms that a Teen Titans live-action film is in the works, with a script by playwright Ana Nogueira. Nogueira is already writing Gunn’s Supergirl movie, and wrote a previous version that would’ve starred The Flash actress Sasha Calle.

I make the case that the Teen Titans are the most popular DC Comics superteam out there, even more than the Justice League. And that’s because the Titans have been adapted in so many different forms, from the zany antics of the Teen Titans Go! cartoon and movie (including the funny Teen Titans Go! To The Movies), to the gritty live-action Titans series that ran four seasons on Max.

Created by George Perez and Marv Wolfman in 1964, the Teen Titans began as a team of sidekicks with Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, and Wonder Girl. Over the years they have added new members, such as Superboy, Cyborg and Beast Boy, while evolving into their adult, more mature personas.

It’s unclear who will direct this new film, or what approach will be taken to the characters. Will Gunn aim for a YA style aimed at teens, or something more serious? Also, where will this film fit into the overall DCU scheme? As of now, only Gunn’s Superman movie has a release date in July 2025.
