Robin: “F*ck Batman” – Geoff Johns Explains

Titans - Robin (DC) Fck Batman

Robin Didn’t Say Fudge

To everyone’s surprise, the new Teen Titans show, simply titled Titans, had a gritty trailer premiere at San Diego Comic-Con. Titans is set to premiere on DC’s very own streaming service. Even more surprising was to find out that Dick Grayson has a potty mouth. After beating up a group of thugs Robin famously now says “F*ck Batman”! Why did he say this, was many fans’ reaction. Well, never fear, Geoff Johns is here to explain.

Geoff Johns, who is serving as producer on Titans, explains in a recent IGN interview how Dick Grayson is in a different place in his life in the show. This is a new Dick Grayson trying to find out who he is without Batman. Johns notes, “Dick Grayson is really trying to find a new place in the world.” It looks like Titans will be telling a different type of superhero story.

The Dark Knight Returns

Titans, from the start, had a noticeably darker tone and feel to it. With Robin dropping the F-bomb and the amount of violence in the trailer, they’ve set a precedent for the dark tone of the show. Especially if you compare it to the new trailer for Shazam!, which was delightfully cheerful. DC’s streaming service is starting off with a serious tone to it.

All News is Good News

One thing about Robin cursing Batman is that it got people talking. Lots of things are happening the weekend of Comic-Con. New trailers seem to be dropping every hour and exciting announcements every minute. It is easy for things to get lost in the shuffle. With one four-letter word, Titans got itself a lot of attention. Memes and jokes popped up almost immediately and everyone had an opinion. Good or bad? That is for you to decide!
