Earlier this week Deadline.com announced that DC Titans got actress, Australian newcomer, Teagan Croft lined up to portray the emotionally challenged young hero, Raven, in her first live action appearance. Raven is described as the daughter of the demon Trigon, and is a powerful empath who must keep her emotions in check or risk unleashing her demonic side. The role of Raven is expected to be a series regular role in the new live-action series Titans, from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV. The series is slated to premiere in 2018 as one of the first series that will launch a DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service.
Written by Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery), DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Johns (The Flash, Arrow) and Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.

For comic book fans, if you’re a fan of Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s iconic 80’s NEW TEEN TITANS, you know that it’s somewhat fitting that Raven is the first lead role announced. In Wolfman and Perez’s iconic Titans run, it was Raven who reformed the Teen Titans to fight her demonic father after the Justice League refused to help.
