There Are No Plans For The Arrowverse To Crossover With ‘Titans’ At This Time

Titans Arrowverse CrossoverThe CW president Mark Pedowitz recently shot down the idea of the Arrowverse and Titans heroes sharing screentime together.

Since 2011, The CW’s Arrowverse has been bringing iconic DC characters and stories to the small screen in exciting ways. This last December, the Arrowverse crossed over in an epic Elseworlds event that featured a massive rewriting of the timeline by treacherous forces. That wasn’t the only exciting thing that DC fans had to look forward to in December though. It was in that same month that DC Universe’s first original series Titans wrapped up its first season.

The live-action adaptation of the Teen Titans comic ran for eleven episodes on the DC Universe streaming service and will be the first of many, including the upcoming spin-off Doom Patrol. While fans fell in love with the heroes of Titans, it seems that they won’t be able to see them fighting alongside the Arrowverse heroes any time soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Pedowitz revealed during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that an Arrowverse/Titans crossover is not on the horizon. However, Pedowitz did have something to say about what would happen if a crossover were in the works.

“I’ll know.”

Although Titans and the Arrowverse won’t be crossing over, both universes will be expanding in exciting ways in the coming future. The pilot for the Ruby Rose-starring Batwoman series is currently in the works while DC Universe fans will soon be getting Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Stargirl, Harley Quinn, and of course, the second season of Titans on the streaming service.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Titans and the Arrowverse as soon as more information becomes available. Would you like to see the two worlds collide? Which characters are you most interested in seeing share the screen together? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”

Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Dwain Murphy as Negative Man, Jake Michaels as Cliff Steel, April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, and Conor Leslie as Wonder Girl, and Curran Walters as Jason Todd.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel

Previous1 of 11

James Gunn Suicide Squad DC ComicsJames Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.

When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC's biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.

Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I've ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.

Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves' The Batman and James Gunn's The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.

Amanda Waller

Suicide Squad Amanda Waller Viola Davis

Warner Bros. and DC may want to reboot Suicide Squad, but it would be seriously dumb for them to recast Amanda Waller. Viola Davis was one of the saving graces of the first film and bringing her back is the smart thing to do. Amanda Waller is the one that puts the group together and she shouldn't be changed due to a new director.

Black Manta

Aquaman Black Manta

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II made his debut as Black Manta in Aquaman and he didn’t get much screen time. The Suicide Squad is the best place for Black Manta to receive some character development and for audiences to see him grow as a villain. Black Manta is a main squad member in the New 52 and I think James Gunn could do the character justice.

Deadshot

Deadshot Will Smith

Another bright spot from the first film: Will Smith as Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot. Will Smith is one of the most famous actors of all time and throughout every review of Suicide Squad his character shines. His charisma and screen presence dominated the film. Not bringing Smith back would be sabotaging the sequel as fans will expect the actor to return following his great performance.

Deathstroke

Deathstroke JoeManganiello

Joe Manganiello made his debut as Deathstroke in the post-credits scene of Justice League. His character wasn't as eager for a team-up as Lex Luthor, but we could see the assassin enroll in the Suicide Squad. It could be great for Manganiello as his Deathstroke film has been put on the back-burner.

Killer Frost

Killer Frost DC Comics

This character is unlikely to show up in The Suicide Squad as she's being heavily utilized in The Flash series on The CW. But, if James Gunn does get his hands on Killer Frost, I guarantee the character will not be a complete shitshow like in the series. Hopefully the director can make Killer Frost as villainous as possible.

Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy DC Comics

Poison Ivy will definitely return to the big screen. Pamela Isley made her big screen debut in Batman & Robin with Uma Thurman playing the character and while that film is so campily terrible, fans are looking forward to a modern take on the iconic DC Comics villain. Poison Ivy is rumored to be part of a Gotham City Sirens film and a rumored Birds of Prey versus The Gotham City Siren project. Ivy could definitely make her DC Extended Universe debut in The Suicide Squad and then return for more movies.

King Shark

King Shark DC Comics

King Shark was supposed to be in the first Suicide Squad, but ultimately didn't make the cut. The concept art of the character shows the cold-blooded amphibious mutant in a Hawaiian shirt looking like a totally monstrous shark. If James Gunn does decide to utilize this character it would be fun to see what he does on screen.

Bronze Tiger

Bronze Tiger DC Comics

Bronze Tiger was heavily featured in the first half of Arrow season 7. He was a major help to Oliver Queen during his tenure in prison. But Arrow hasn't done a very accurate version of Bronze Tiger and The Suicide Squad could be the first place we get to see Ben Turner really let loose.

Bane

Bane DC Comics

Bane is an interesting choice to join The Suicide Squad. He is a member in the comics and even the first film had some concept art featuring his mask. Fans are clamoring for Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista to join the film as the iconic Batman villain, having the actor reunite with James Gunn.

Cheetah

Wonder Woman 1984 Kristen Wiig Cheetah

Kristen Wiig will make her debut as infamous Wonder Woman villain Cheetah in 2020's Wonder Woman 1984. Maybe after the film, Cheetah gets locked up by A.R.G.U.S. and joins the Squad in present day. It would be great to see Wiig's character be explored more in future films.
