Following the announcement that Netflix nabbed the non-U.S. streaming rights to DC Universe’s Titans, the series has released a new trailer showing how the group is brought together to “Fuck Batman” and take down a dangerous foe.

This new look at Titans, which has a YouTube version for those in the UK and Ireland, gives us a better look at what’s at stake and how the Titans are going to join together to defeat it. Raven (Teagan Croft) pleads for help from Detroit’s newest detective Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), better known in the crime-fighting circuit as Robin, to battle her father, the demon Trigon (Seamus Dever).


Dick takes on a bit of a parental role with Raven—much to the chagrin of his loved ones, who worry he’s doing it mostly because Bruce Wayne did the same thing for him when he was a kid. Interpersonal issues aside, Robin and Raven decide it’s time to fight back, recruiting Starfire (Anna Diop) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) in their showdown against evil. But not before Beast Boy and Raven make googly eyes while complimenting each other’s wacky hair. On that note, the wigs in this thing are something to behold. I don’t think I’ve caught a single one that doesn’t look like a hot mess.

Titans debuts on DC Universe in the U.S. on October 12. Netflix hasn’t announced an international release date yet.

I’ll ask one more time... It just makes zero sense. Why is Starfire dressed like a 1970's New York hooker? Complete with terrible wig? Just ...why?

I don’t understand Starfire’s costume. IT’s the most important costume to get right, and they’ve totally botched it. Instead of saying... ‘she’s evolving’ we’re all supposed to what, nod our heads and pretend like that’s what she’s always looked like?
