@ostyo thoughts?

This is why you don't make comic book shows...

@xwraith: Rachel Roth version, and without a doubt a completely nerfed and poorly casted one? No thanks.

I'm in. This also makes me wonder if Felicity (Arrow) will get the title of Oracle, since all Supergirl, and Teen Titans are rumored to cross over with Arrow/Flash or at least be in the same universe.

I'm betting they're skipping Cyborg because he's being used in the movies. Beast Boy is probably just too expensive to film on a TV budget. A shapeshifter would be pure CGI a bunch of the time.

i have such average feels about this.

its very apparent to me nearly every tv/movie property that someone who doesnt read and/or care about comics is calling the shots. And this lineup is tripping some alarms.

Robin, Starfire, and Raven all tested well in the cartoons. Thats why they are there.

Barb is there because they have been emulating her in every tv show and movie.Having someone at a computer talking to you through an earpiece is becoming a staple of the superhero genre, and she started it. (now they COULD have put cyborg in a wheelchair and had him play that until he got even MORE hurt and became cyborg, but thats just awesome thinking on my part)

Hawk and Dove are there because every show tries to add an unknown character into the mix. They can more or less do what they want with them, and if they kick off the opportunities for merch and spinoffs are less restricted (creatively and legally). I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of them was ethnically ambiguous too. They are unknown and the team is looking pretty pale right now.

The only thing i really am kind of interested in is if there will be crossover between Arrow/Flash. TNT is under the timewarner umbrella with CW, so its possible. Arsenal and the eventual Kid Flash that has been rumored would be awesome additions down the line. And getting cross over villains is something that comics do that shows and movies havent. Think of them fighting Deathstroke. Or the Flash Rouges. or Grodd. That'd be cool.

but at best, this seems like another show that starts crudy to me and grows to average over time. Why hollywood people always think the need to change things is beyond me.

I'll give it a shot but if I were to be honest I'd rather have some of the other members on the show, like Beast Boy or Wonder Girl.

They can't use Cyborg for obvious reasons.

yes they can. Flash is (possibly) being doubled too. They own the rights and can do what they want.

And all the Grayson/Babs/Kori drama you can shake a stick at!

oh yeah. that was probably the pitch for the show lol

I can guess budget wise they probably can't have the variety of super powers, super strength and tk can be done cheap and easy and Starfire's energy powers, if she has them will probably be used sparingly

Not a bad choice with Hawk and Dove their powers are cheap to do on a tv budget .Plus it leave more in the budget for Raven and Starfire special effects which is a good thing if done right.

I like the line up. I don't really care for Hawk & Dove being on the team. Given the opportunity I would've thrown them out for Wally, Donna, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Roy, or Garth. Pretty much cuz I am a huge Wolfman/Perez fan.

I love the addition of Batgirl! I find that a great addition! And having Dick, Raven, and Starfire is awesome and known. I really like the fact they are starting Dick off as Robin. Hopefully he'll actually be a teen and maybe giving him the classic costume. Yeah it'll look stupid though I loved that about superheroes. They wear these crazy, outlandish costumes that should get them killed when fighting though they don't get killed making them even more the badass.

I want a Watchmen feel to it. No storywise though the set up. Wear it isn't afraid to show the crazy, outlandish costumes in live action.

I'm pretty happy with this lineup. Not a Hawk and Dove person, but I'll give it a chance. I'm also glad the team is mostly female. I kinda like that.

I can understand Cyborg not being there since he's become a prominent Justice League member now and will even be featured in the films.

Beast Boy, Blue Beetle, or Speedy would've been nice, though.

I wonder if this show is going to crossover with Flash/Arrow. We have Arsenal, Deathstroke, Kid Flash, and Nightwing from Bludhaven, the location which was mentioned in Arrow.

I was hoping for a Batgirl solo series, now I'm hoping there's no love triangle between Babs, Dick, Starfire.

Grayson, Barbara, and Starfire? Cliché love triangle spotted off the port bow, captain.

Indeed.

Interesting to See Hawk and Dove there, still I'll give it a shot

I love the "where's so and so" reaction. Yeah, why not put every single character who's ever been a member in the very first episode?

I really hope they're aren't going to play it as if Rachel Roth is her real name and Raven is the alias.

Oracle being included is cool, I don't see her being in any other live-action adaptations anytime soon.

Part of me suspects Hawk and Dove were added solely to eventually be killed off... Hmm but by whom...

As long as it doesn't end like the Birds of Pray show (that was like a half baked Charmed, Charmed already being half-baked itself) I'll be interested.

I imagine Beast Boy would be hard to realise well on a TV budget, but Hawk and Dove? Really?

Excited for Dick and Raven though. And even though I'm not the biggest fan of Starfire or Babs I'm glad female heroes are getting good rep.

Okay okay, now when do the guys with the cameras jump out and say, "We're just kidding about Hawk and Dove being in the team and that they'll never amount to the awesomeness of Arsenal, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Donna Troy, Garth and The Flash. Who we have replaced them with..."?
