The Internet

I have to admit that at times I really do feel like this. I think anyone who spends any amount of time looking at social media or trying to put their own work online for everyone to see, eventually feels like this at some point. I don’t really feel like this now however, I just thought it was funny. Happy Friday Nerd Nation! Don’t forget to follow me on the Twitter https://twitter.com/nerdgasmneeds

Live Action Teen Titans Show

Apparently dominating prime time TV with four different shows wasn’t enough for DC. They are looking for the knock out with what could be their best series yet. So far they are killing it with Arrow, getting ready for the Flash spinoff, Gotham is ready to hit Fox, and Constantine is coming to NBC. Well, DC has now announced plans for a Teen Titan’s series that will air on the TNT network. This has definitely peaked my interest but (for me) the most exciting news is that the team will be led by non other than Dick Grayson as Nightwing, not as Robin.

According to EW it has been confirmed that Akiva Goldsman (who worked on Fringe and I Am Legend) will be heading up this project as writer and producer. Nightwing will be leading the young team of superheroes that will supposedly include both Starfire and Raven. No word if Beast Boy or Cyborg will be joining the team as of yet. The show will actually be titled “Titans” and will take on a more mature feel unlike it’s animated counterparts that aired on Cartoon Network.

Personally I think this is a really cool idea, but I wish they would have given Nightwing his own show from the beginning. The entire time I’ve been watching Arrow all I could think was “Damn, this should have been based on Nightwing.” Don’t get me wrong, I love their take on Green Arrow, but a part of me has always wished that they would have gone with Dick Grayson and Nightwing instead. Either way I’m excited to see what they do with this new Titan’s show and hope that it is as good if not better than Arrow. Let me know what you think about this Nerd Nation. Are you excited for a live action Teen Titan’s show or do you think DC is biting off more than they can chew? Let me know your thoughts by leaving me a comment below, on Facebook, or on Twitter.
