That trailer looked like hot garbage. And DC Streaming wants you to sign up for a YEAR?! For $75?! HA.

Way too dark...both literally and figuratively. I mean it's just a trailer but it gives me no where near the feeling Cloak & Dagger's trailer did.

They're literally just filming in the dark to hide their cheap, cheap special effects and scenery budget.

Yeah, I'm no DC fan but Raven and Grayson are two of my favorites and I was like....wtf is this? It looks so generic and bad.

If this is what we're going to get from DC's streaming service then they can kiss my arse.

CBS gave us the best Star Trek in forever on their streaming service. So I won't lower my expectations like that...

Wow, that looks...

That's bad. Everything is bad. Dick Grayson, a character who generally is much less violent and less maimy than Batman is basically killing people in the streets. Dove is slicing handstrings I assume, but it honestly looks way too violent for a character that's about peace. (Yes, I know she can fight, but this doesn't look right. It's more what I'd expect from... Batman.) Starfire... is possibly burning people to death, I'm not sure what's happening and she looks pretty bad. Beast Boy looks alright and I'm pretty okay with Raven I suppose.

Yeah, it's just a trailer, but it's a pretty crappy first foot forward. I'm beginning to think DC has a mindset that superheroes can't be fun anymore. That people are ONLY into the Nolan type hero movies where everything is dark and violent.

I have so many problems here:
  • Dick is too violent and too old to still be Robin. Why not Nightwing if you're going to make him a policeman?
  • Starfire looks like a streetwalker. I know it's a character that is very sexually liberated but she looks cheap and that wig is tragic.
  • I found hilarious that there wasn't any shots of Beast Boy using his powers. With how awful the VFX looks here I can't wait to see the mess they will come up for him.
  • Dove being violent is however so much worse than Dick being violent. It goes against the freaking core of the character.
  • Surprisingly, I have no problem with Raven. She actually looks like a good adaptation of the concept.
  • The age spread of over 15 years between the four mains is bothering me.
I literally have no idea where this is going. But I don't feel optimistic about it.

I think the Robin bits are his past, and current Dick is a cop who's tried to put the vigilante life behind him. Then he becomes Nightwing.

Beast Boy is 100% going to be given a Vixen makeover. "Strength of bear!". Either that or they'll cut away and a green housecat or whatever will bound onto the screen.

Dove is baffling, though.

I think it's hilarious they ripped off the worst line, from one of the worst Pre-MCU movies: Spider-Man 3 when Toby says "The darkness, it feels good."

Teen Titans looks like it’s trying way too hard to be the Watchmen movie, & I say this as someone who likes the Watchmen movie. It’s as if they didn’t get the memo that the movies finally got. I laughed so hard at Robin cursing. (Batman’s got a utility pouch filled with Bat-soap just for him.) It’d be fine if this was Hit-Girl Damien Wayne or Jason Todd, but Dick Grayson shouldn’t be so violent. That fur coat just looks wrong on Starfire. Even Dove, whose whole deal is pacifism, is slicing crooks up! They seem to be on the right track with spooky Raven, but she’s going to be overshadowed if all her teammates are grimdark murderers. Young Justice: Outsiders looks much better in comparison. (Now will they tell us what Vandal Savage’s masterplan is?) If you want one but not the other, you still have to pay $75 per year or $8 per month.

Speaking of that, this meme is hilarious.

Eh, teen angst with a horror theme. Looks about the same as the CW line up. As a 40-something, I am not the target audience. If I was, then they missed the target by a mile.

That’s an insult to CW to say that with a straight face.

Not only does the actually quality look worse (seen better demonic stuff on Supernatural if we’re being honest)but they appear to have even less fidelity to the source material as well...

I’ll take the CW’s Gorilla Grodd and King Shark (or ridiculously fun Legends) over sh***y wigged Starfire and Grimdark Robin anyday...but maybe that’s just me

Everybody would take Grodd & King Shark over this. That's why they're getting a team-up episode this season.
