DC Universe Live Action Titans, A Review

Tonight I  watched the debut of Dc Universe first original series, DC Titans. Most DC Comics fans knew that the series would be live-action. However, I do not believe anyone was prepared for the dark side of the series to be darker than that of Batman Beyond, or to surpass the violence in that of the most recent DC movies.

Once you got over the brutality displayed by Dick Grayson, it was easy to admit that making the series for online streaming was a wise choice.  Because nowhere in the history of the Titans will you find them as such extremely dark, damaged and dangerous anti-heroes. These incarnations of the Titans were all grown to adapt to the world inside the Dc Universe  in which they live.

The main characters are easily recognizable with Rachel Roth as a scared teenager coming into her own as the Raven.  Frighten of the alien force inside her, Rachel goes on the run after witnessing the death of her mother. Koriand'r / Kory Anders / Starfire with her flaming red hair and glowing emerald eyes that shine brightly when she is aflame. In the series Starfire is puzzle when she wakes up without a memory of who she is, that men are trying to kill her and why she is looking for Rachel Roth. That she can burn men to cinders disturbs her only a little.  Then there is the changeling, Garfield "Gar" Logan, a green haired kid who is better known as Beast Boy.  He is so immature that he can only think of using his abilities of changing into any beast he wants just to steal video games.

Finally,  Richard "Dick" Grayson/Robin,  like Bruce Wayne, Dick lost his parents to violence.  After learning all that he could from Bruce/Batman and fearing that he would not become his own person if he stay with him, Dick strikes out on his own and  during the series forms the Titans. With no superpowers of his own, Dick as Robin, but looking like Nightwing, is no less hindered in his fighting skills than his super pals.  He, like the others, tends to go over the edge when dealing with criminals more than we ever saw in the Titans animated series.  Here in the DC Universe series, Dick Grayson is a detective for the  Detroit Police Department.

One must sign up for an account to stream videos on DC Universe. However, the cost is minimal for the chance to stream some great entertainment from new and classic series, movies, cartoons, plus DC Universe Live Presents: DC Daily, where host Kevin Smith introduces you to all the great features of the DC Universe.

DC Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard "Dick" Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand'r / Kory Anders / Starfire, Ryan Potter as Garfield "Gar" Logan / Beast Boy, and Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven.

From novels to role playing games to streaming media The Witcher is now making its mark in an Netflix upcoming original series.

If you have been a fan of the ‎ role-playing game The Witcher you will love knowing that your favorite characters are coming to Netflix in a live action series. This series is based on the fantasy novels of Polish writer, Andrzej Sapkowski.

The good news today is that it was announced that the actresses Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra were cast in the roles of Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (better known as Ciri and Yennefer of Vengerberg. The actresses play opposite Henry Cavill who is to play Geralt of Rivia. This live action fantasy drama is perhaps Netflix most interesting original series to date because The Witcher is an multi-award PC game that has been around since the days of Atari. I am sure some of you remember the Atari games and consoles.
In the game The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a witcher: a traveling monster hunter for hire, gifted with unnatural powers. The story takes place in a fictional medieval world.  on Geralt of Rivia is also known as "the White Wolf", who at the beginning of the game suffers from amnesia. He gradually learns that he was a very renowned witcher, and that he had friends and enemies almost everywhere, who remember him but whom he does not remember. Through the player's actions, he will redefine those relationships and choose his path in the political intrigue that surrounds him.

Also in the game, Ciri, was born in 1253, and most likel during the Belleteyn holiday. She was the sole princess of Cintra, the daughter of Pavetta and Emhyr var Emreis (who was using the alias "Duny" at the time) as well as Queen Calanthe's granddaughter.

After Geralt of Rivia helped lift Duny's curse, Duny asked what reward the witcher would like and Geralt proclaimed the Law of Surprise, as it turned out Pavetta was pregnant with Ciri, unbeknownst to Duny.

On the other hand, Yennefer  was born in 1173, and she had a rough childhood from the moment she was born, having been born a hunchback. Her father immediately detested her due to this deformity and blamed Yennefer's mother for it, claiming it was through her side, with mages and elven blood, not to mention her having had an abortion before, that caused the deformity. Her mother initially tried to protect Yennefer, believing it was by the will of the gods, but her father still struck Yennefer until one day he left them both for someone else. After this, her mother, upset that her husband had left, also began to beat her own daughter.

During the Battle of Sodden Hill she was blinded by Fringilla Vigo, a Nilfgaardian sorceress. Her sight was later magically restored but she still bore the emotional scars.
Like most sorceresses, she was sterile. She secretly sought a way of restoring her fertility. She gave her motherly love to Ciri - the child destined for Geralt by the Law of Surprise - teaching her about magic while in Ellander, at the Temple of Melitele under the watchful eye of Nenneke.

Added to the  list of The Witcher's  cast members are Jodhi May playing Queen Calanthe of Cintra; Björn Hlynur Haraldsson will play her husband, Eist. Adam Levy will play Mousesack the Druid; MyAnna Buring is the head of the magical academy named Tissaia; Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read play the two apprentice sorcerers, Fringilla and Sabrina; and finally, Millie Brady will play an outcast princess, Renfri.

If the Witcher is anything like Game of Thrones, it will make history for Andrzej Sapkowski and Netflix.
