WB / DC T.V Casts Anna Diop As Starfire In Upcoming Titans Live-Action Series.
According to Deadline, 24:Legacy actress, Anna Diop has been cast as the
no-nonsense superhero Starfire. As many comic book fans know, Starfire is an Alien
Warrior Princess who seeks refuge in the Planet Earth.
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven, and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
She joins the only other person cast so far, actress Teagan Croft as Raven (Though younger than she is traditional depicted). Other members of The Titans typically include characters such as Nightwing, Beast Boy, Kid Flash and Cyborg. We have no confirmation of the full roster, but we do know that previous Robin, Nightwing will feature. Co-produced by Greg Berlanti. It seems like this show will be in good hands as he is basically in charge of the CW shows, Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and SuperGirl (No news on if this new series will be connected to those shows). He will not be alone, as he will have the help of Akiva Goldsman and the comic book genius (And new head of DC Films) Geoff Johns. The new series will debut with the upcoming DC streaming service, set to launch some time in 2018. The new service will also air the long awaited third season of animated series Young Justice, (whose roster has a similar line up of characters) and should have fans clamoring for what’s to come.
