Opinion: Titans' F Batman

posted by Vu Nguyen

From Vu


TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
I don't mind adult languages on shows, but I didn’t think it was appropriate to use in a commercial (trailer) for the upcoming Titans DC Streaming show. Imagine if you open up your favorite magazine and see an advertisement for Titans with the words “F--- Batman” in the center of the spread. You have to understand that a lot of people, including children who loves Teen Titans Go!, watched this trailer and was shocked to hear this. I’m sure there are F words in a lot of trailers, but at the moment, I can’t remember ever watching a trailer and hearing foul languages. That’s because most trailers follow the MPAA standards, which, personally speaking, DC should have attempted to use those guidelines. I’m not just talking about language, but also maybe curb (no pun intended) down the violence, etc. I understand that DC wanted to set the tone (dark and mature) for the upcoming show, but maybe they could have addressed that in an uncensored Red Band version with full warning and a MPAA version for the general watching public.

It's still too early for me to spend $75 a year (or $7.99 a month) for this, sight unseen. I’ll wait until it arrives and give the free seven day trial a chance.

Geoff Johns explains "F*** Batman"

TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
“The trailer shows a piece of the tone of the show — the show’s not all that, but it does make you go, ‘Why is he saying [“F*** Batman”]?’ If you look at when Robin first left Batman in the comics, there was a lot of uneasiness and him being lost. Titans is really a series about these different characters that are all lost in their lives; just like the greatest comic book Titans run ever, by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, it’s about all these lost characters find one another. And they’re all struggling with something, and Robin is clearly struggling with his past with Batman.

And we’ll learn a lot more about it and what that is and why he is the way he is.”

SDCC 2018: Geoff Johns Spotlight Panel
By Russ Burlingame - July 19, 2018

Excerpt:

Johns, of course, was instrumental in creating Titans for the DC Universe streaming service, so the pair dimmed the lights and screened the trailer released earlier today.

Johns said that he wanted to honor the envelope-pushing Marv Wolfman/George Perez run, and that he wanted to celebrate characters who had shaped the property over the years.

"There's a lot of other characters in it, Donna Troy and Jason Todd, it's the whole Titans universe," Johns said.

X-Men #112 Poste Framed

UNCANNY X-MEN #112 (Aug 1978)
Marvel Comics
I ended up buying a 24x36 frame for my X-Men poster. I've put it next to a standard-size comic book for size comparison.

I don't recommend this $10 frame. It's not a traditional frame, as the sides slides/comes off the plastic sheet and cardboard back.... but if you're price sensitive, this $10 Target frame is okay for display. I do recommend buying a traditional frame ($20-$40 depending on framing and style).

Large poster of Uncanny X-Men #112 from Aquarius Posters

UNCANNY X-MEN #112 (Aug 1978)
Marvel Comics
I didn't know they printed this, but I recently found what looks like an official licensed 24"x36" poster of Uncanny X-Men #112, art by George Perez and Bob Layton. The print is actually very crisp and colorful at that large size.

The poster is published by Aquarius Posters, listed under the title "X-Men" and catalog number of CP1425.

The local store sold this for $7.99 and, for once, is cheaper than Amazon (amzn.to/2uyvsvv). I suggest you just shop around at your local music/movie or pop culture store.

NEW TEEN TITANS #4 (Jan 1985)
DC Comics

New Teen Titans #4 (Jan 1985) page 9 appears on Ready Player One at 11:10 mins. The original pages had red background, so the version seen on the film may be a reprint or digital version. Written by Marv Wolfman, art by George Perez and Romeo Tanghal, colors by Adrienne Roy.

Also, Darren Johnson @IODarren mentioned that Raven appears on graffiti at about 1:16:50: twitter.com


Update: It appears the page 9 in the film may actually be taken from the reprint on Tales of the Teen Titans #63 (Mar 1986). Notice the stark differences in colors in the original baxter pages on the left vs the newsprint on the right.
