The edge here is…adorable. This is the worst. The absolute worst. I’ve come to accept that DC’s live-action stuff is never going to aspire to be anything other than a complete shit-show (Wonder Woman being good doesn’t change that. If anything, it makes it worse because we realize that there is at least ONE person who knew how to do this right, and now they get crushed under the weight of DC’s ineptitude), so I might as well be able to laugh at how bad it is. A live-action version of Teen Titans? Okay, let’s see what the damage is.
It’s even worse than I thought. We start with seeing who I am going to assume is Raven. And she looks…so not fitting. I get the feeling she was a character who would be born having resting bitch face all the time. She was a nice character, but her demeanor is off-putting because she clearly doesn’t like people. This character, and her TERRIBLE hair dye job, looks derpy. That’s one Teen Titan that they’ve shit on. Let’s see more.
Next up, we’re introduced to Robin. And he is…angsty. Okay. Guess he learned his gloomy lessons from Batman. And yet, when a bunch of thugs ask where Batman is, his response? “Fuck Batman!” Oh my Groj. This is every angsty teenager who slits their wrists cross-wise for attention. Wow. Plus, I can’t help but notice he is horrible maiming and murdering people. That’s interesting. So, are ANY of DC’s character going to not be serial killers? I guess a moral compass isn’t part of the DCEU’s MO.
We cut to them showing off that Raven has powers, and it looks even worse. The black eyes effect just makes her look ridiculous. Is there a reason they couldn’t have gone with her eyes going all white? I’m genuinely asking here. Because that eye effect just looks terrible. I’m gonna be saying that a lot with this post. It just looks terrible. Everything looks terrible. And she’s a scared little bitch. This bugs me. Raven was angsty and kinda dark, but she was never this little scaredy-cat character. I always liked her, growing up. A character with some depression issues that had cool friends. It spoke to me as a teenager, after my head injury. This trailer sucks so bad.
Finally, we get to Beast Boy and Starfire. The latter is another character with a TERRIBLE hair dye job. He looks like every Tumblr male feminist I’ve ever seen, except he’s Asian, so I guess he bucked the trend that way. I only see pathetic white dudes in that role. But what the HELL have they done to Starfire?! I had to look this chick who is playing her up. It is a genuine talent that DC has to be able to take a character who’s hot, and an actress who’s hot, and make them ugly. That takes talent! I’m impressed!
Finally, we the big action montage, with the tagline – Inner Demons Will Come Out To Play. “Why don’t you understand me, mom!” That’s all I hear when I see shit like this. This is the worst, and it’s kinda great. It’s proof of what a flaming shit-show DC has become, and with shit like this, all it will ever be. But you wanna know what really blows my mind? DC thinks that people are going to pay a subscription fee to watch this bullshit. What?! What moron would pay to watch this garbage?! DC is being run by delusional idiots who want to cash in on comic book nerds.
The people in the comments saying that this show is gonna be great and all the people who don’t think so are just Marvel fanboys need to shut the fuck up. This is trash. This is complete garbage without any redeeming qualities whatsoever. The effects are laughable. The character designs are the worst I’ve ever seen. But more than any of that, it has this adorable edge to it that just tickles me pink. What a giant pile of shit.
DC taking a shit and telling people it’s good
