Needless to say...Titans together!
Netflix, which is handling the international distribution for the upcoming DC Universe series Titans, has released a new 2 minute, 25 second trailer for the series that looks far more appealing than DC Universe's disappointing first trailer.
We open inside police headquarters in Detroit, Michigan, where a male police detective is studying security camera footage of the alley where Robin fought some bad guys. "Are you sure it's him?" he asks another detective. "We called Gotham P. D. He hasn't been seen for over a year."
Next, we see Robin leaping high above that alley, as said bad guys wonder, "What was what?"
"Disappeared they said," continues the male detective.
"They thought he might be dead," replies Detective Jessica Perez (Liza Colón-Zayas), who is standing in front of Detective Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites).
"Why come here?" asks the male detective. "Why Detroit?"
"The weather?" suggests Grayson.
Back to the scene in the alley, one bad guy asks, "Where's Batman?" while another observes, "Hey, the little birdie's alone."
After we see Robin take out said bad guys, and this time not killing any of them or stepping on their necks, the male detective remarks, "Let's just hope the hell he's passing through."
In a separate scene, we see Grayson speaking with Raven/Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft) in a police interrogation room. He introduces himself and asks her, "You wanna talk about what happened?"
"Can you help me?" asks Raven.
We cut to Raven's home, where she calls out for her mother, only to find The Acolyte (Jarreth J. Merz) shoving her mother Angela into view. "Rachel," says the Acolyte. "That's what she calls you."
Cutting back to the interrogation room, Raven begins to cry and tells Grayson, "There is something inside of me..." We cut to a separate scene, where Raven is using some sort of sonic cry that shatters a glass table, just before a shadowy form (that may be her soul-self) lashes out and attacks someone. "...Something evil," continues Raven.
In a different scene, we see Grayson trying to reassure Raven with a hug. "Nothing bad's going to happen to you, don't worry."
In another scene, we see Grayson talking with Dove/Dawn Granger (Minka Kelly), who advises him, "Taking care of a kid is complicated. You know that better than anyone. I know how healing it must be doing what Bruce did for you when you lost your parents."
As we see Grayson and Raven sitting in a diner booth, followed by a flashback of young Dick Grayson arriving at Wayne Manor, Dawn continues asking, "What happened between you and Bruce?"
"I guess we had different ideas of how to do the job," replies Grayson.
Cutting back to the diner booth scene, Grayson tells Raven, "We're gonna go see some old friends of mine."
We shift to another scene, where Beast Boy/Garfield Logan (Ryan Potter) transforms from a green tiger into his green (and naked) human form as Starfire/Koriand'r (Anna Diop) laughs in amusement and Grayson and Raven look on.
In a different scene, we see Raven and Beast Boy awkwardly bonding while playing pinball and Raven tells Beast Boy that she likes his hair.
Another scene features Starfire driving a car, with Raven in the passenger seat. "Call me Kory," she says to Raven.
"What do you want from me?" asks Raven.
"I've been looking for you. There are people out there trying to hurt you." This is followed by a couple of glimpses of Starfire using her fire-based powers.
"Total badass," remarks Raven.
"I feel danger," remarks Starfire as we glimpse DC Comics supervillains The Nuclear Family. We see Nuclear Mom (Melody Johnson) finding Raven. "There you are, dear," she says menacingly.
This is followed by Raven being wheeled in on a hospital gurney by a pair of nuns. "What are you doing?" asks Raven.
"We all must make sacrifices, child," says one of the nuns.
We then see several fleeting images, including dark energy swirling above Raven as the other Titans look on, Starfire being shot with a bullet that triggers her powers, Hawk and Dove fighting bad guys, Beast Boy baring his fangs, Beast Boy (as a tiger) flinging someone across the room, Robin fighting some more bad guys, and Starfire punching someone across a room and being shocked by her strength.
In a final scene, we see Grayson driving a car with Raven again in the passenger seat. "Do it ever go away?" she asks.
"What?" replies Grayson.
"The feeling you got left behind?"
More fleeting images follow, including a shattered mirror being telekinetically moved through the air by Raven, Grayson and Starfire looking upwards at a swarm of bats, Starfire kissing someone (Grayson, perhaps?), and lastly, Raven screaming and blowing out a bunch of car windshields.
