‘Teen Titans’ Live-Action Feature in Development at DC Studios, ‘Supergirl’ Writer Attached

DC Studios is adding to its newly rebooted cinematic universe with a live-action film adaptation of “Teen Titans,” tapping screenwriter Ana Nogueira to pen the feature.

The news comes only four months after Nogueria was reported to be writing “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” for Warner Bros. Discovery’s comic book adaptation division. An actor and playwright, Nogueira has been involved with DC for several years now, having been originally tapped by the previous regime to write a “Supergirl” movie that would’ve seen Sasha Calle reprise the character after debuting in last summer’s “The Flash.” That project was scrapped after James Gunn and Peter Safran took on leadership roles, setting plans for a rebooted continuity of on-screen DC Comics adaptations. But the pair have maintained a relationship with Nogueira, which is further growing with “Titans.”

“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” was confirmed by Gunn and Safran alongside DC Studios’ first slate of announced features, which will formally begin with the Gunn-directed “Superman” on July 11, 2025. The “Teen Titans” film is a new development; it was not part of that initial group of confirmed projects, which includes an adaptation of the “Batman” arc “The Brave and the Bold,” a horror-forward take on “Swamp Thing” and an antihero team-up film “The Authority.”

First introduced in the ’60s, the Teen Titans are a group of superpowered young ‘uns traditionally led by Batman’s second banana Robin, fighting alongside heroes like Cyborg, Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy. The property has spawned two animated series adaptations for Cartoon Network: the anime-influenced “Teen Titans” in the aughts and the more absurdist-comedic “Teen Titans Go!,” which is still running after debuting in 2013 and also spawned a theatrical feature adaptation, 2018’s “Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.”

Nogueira is repped by CAA, Howard Green Entertainment and Goodman Genow.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report on the project and Nogueira’s involvement.
