Deadline reports that the first cast member for the live-action Teen Titans series, simply titled Titans, has been found with Australian newcomer Teagan Croft set to play Raven.
The daughter of the demon Trigon, Raven is a powerful psychic primarily using psychic empathy, either absorbing emotions or pain of others and even healing them. Raven is also capable of telekinesis, teleportation, and astral projection.
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever. The show will be written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), President and CCO of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns (The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl).
Titans is in development at Warner Bros.’ own digital subscription service, which is set to launch in 2018 with the live-action series and the long-awaited third season of Young Justice.
