Among the most consistent complaints about DC Universe’s Titans is that Robin is the only team member shown in costume in the barrage of photos and promos released ahead of the premiere of the live-action series. However, that changes in the latest behind-the-scenes footage, which offers glimpses of Starfire and Raven in more comics-accurate attire.
The absence of costumes makes sense from a story standpoint, as Season 1 opens with Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft) as a troubled teen on the run with little more to her name than a black hooded sweatshirt and the contents of her backpack, and “Kory Anders” (Anna Diop) as a woman who awakes after a night of apparent partying, and car chases, with no idea of who she is or what she can do.
But as demonstrated by this new footage, which debuted on DC Daily, the characters won’t wear their civilian clothes for the entire first season.
Rachel, aka Raven, switches to a hooded black cape and leather skirt or shorts at some point, while Koriand’r, aka Starfire, will exchange her purple dress and fur coat for some kind of armor, with purple clothing beneath.
Titans premiered Oct. 12 on DC Universe as the new branded streaming service’s first original series. The second episode, “Hawk & Dove,” debuts Friday, introducing Alan Ritchson as Hawk and Minka Kelly as Dove, the crime-fighting duo who share some history with Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites).
Now streaming on DC Universe, Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach. A new episode debuts each Friday.
