The Nerdist revealed the lineup for TNT's new Teen Titan show The Titans, earlier today and (with a few exceptions), the list isn't all the surprising.


Nightwing
Everyone's favorite Robin has left Batman, moved to Boston, and is working as a solo act. He's still Robin, but will ultimately don his Nightwing persona as the show progresses.

Barbara Gordon
In her Teen Titans debut, Barbara Gordon (formerly Batgirl), will be wheelchair bound, but not yet have taken up her Oracle identity. She'll serve as the team's computer expert as well as a love interest for Nightwing.

Hawk & Dove
Two teens imbued with the powers of the Lords of Order and Chaos. Originally brothers, the show has decided to go with the Crisis on Infinite Earth version of the two, and the duo will make up a "spunky" romantic pairing.

Raven
Everyone's favorite angsty, brooding empath and teleporter. She must keep her emotions under check or release a demonic version of herself.

Starfire
Another iconic member of the team, and a space princess with flight and energy bolts, Starfire will most likely make up the third point in a love triangle with d*ck and Barbara.



With Cyborg having his own spot in the Warner Bros Justice League movie series, it's not surprising that he didn't make the cut, but the snubbing of fan favorite Beast Boy seems a little surprising. What do you think of the line-up?

CBS has found theirSupergirl. Reports incdicate that Glee star Melissa Benoist, will take the role of Kara-Zor-El, Superman's cousin who also escaped the death of Krypton and found her way to Earth.

Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she's been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
With their sister network, The CW's, success with Arrow and The Flash, it looks like CBS wants a piece of the DC pie. Let's just hope it pans out better than Constantine.

Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.

A new show is in the works!

Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."

And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author David Handler) himself has to say about it:

"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."

A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.

ABC is continuing their Marvel investment! Not only have they officially renewed Agents of SHIELD for a second season, they've also ordered the Captain America spin-off, Agent Carter.

For those who can't recall her role in the Cinematic Universe, Peggy Carter was Cap's World War II love interest, a formidable agent, and co-founder of SHIELD. While there isn't a lot of information about Agent Carter yet, the show is being described as:

It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.
Plus we have this scene from the Marvel One-Shot available on the Iron Man 3 DVD.
