Movie developments for "Teen Titans" have been around for years and this time, the teenage superheroes might get their long awaited appearance in a standalone film. Warner Brothers has a lineup of films under the DC Expanded Universe (DCEU) until 2020 and some of the movies highlighted for development remain untitled.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, DCEU insider Umberto Gonzales tweeted a picture of "The New Teen Titans" comic. Gonzales is known for giving scoops on the latest developments in DCEU and he is known for tweeting images that mean something. Could his latest photo be an indication that Warner Bros. is finally planning to release a "Teen Titans" movie?

DCEU's Film Developments

Warner Bros. has several untitled movies in their calendar and based on a recent tweet by Gonzales, they could be planning to add "Teen Titans" in their movie lineup. Umberto's scoops have always been meaningful. This kept a lot of fans hoping that this time Warner Bros. will push through with the movie. Back in October, there was an announcement that there will be two films scheduled for release in 2019 and 2020, and it's likely that both will be from DCEU and one could be "Teen Titans."

"Teen Titans" The Movie

There have been several attempts to create a standalone "Teen Titans" movie under DCEU. So far, the only movie where the Titans appeared under DCEU is "Justice League vs. Teen Titans," a direct-to-video movie which was released in 2016. An animated movie entitled "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" was confirmed back in 2006 and was supposed to be a direct-to-DVD movie. The production was placed on hold back in 2008 but during the 2016 San Diego Comic Con, an announcement was made that the movie will be scheduled for release in the spring of 2017.

The last "Teen Titans" movie planned by Warner Bros. was teased by Gonzales in Collider Heroes in 2015. According to him, it will include Cyborgs and an all-female group. Interestingly, one of the titles in the DCEU lineup is "Cyborgs." While there are some untitled films in the calendar, this could indicate that "Teen Titans" will be in that movie or better yet that the Titans will appear in "Cyborgs" and in their own movie.
