Netflix’s ‘Titans’ Marketing Draws 2003 ‘Teen Titans’ Comparisons

Titans DC Universe BannerThe DC Universe original series Titans is currently streaming internationally on Netflix, and to promote this, Netflix has released a banner featuring the four main characters–Beast Boy, Robin, Raven, and Starfire–against a colored backdrop that looks quite similar to the color scheme of the 2003 Teen Titans animated series.

And here’s the 2003 series intro just as a reminder (but have we really forgotten, though?):

Clearly, this marketing strategy is meant to appeal to the fans of the original series, but it also emphasizes how different the two are. Let’s hope people don’t get too confused, though.

Titans was released last year in the U.S. as part of DC’s own streaming service DC Universe, but it wasn’t available anywhere else. The TV series releases this Friday on Netflix so many people will be binge-watching it this weekend around the world. The series was well received by critics and fans alike and it was even rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. This is the first of several series slated for DC Universe. The next live-action series that we’ll see in 2019 are Doom PatrolStargirl, and Swamp Thing.

If you’re outside the U.S., will you binge watch it this weekend? Tell us in the comment section below!!

Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.

The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy.

Titans is now available exclusively on DC Universe and on Netflix internationally.
