Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment announced earlier this week that a live-action ‘Titans’ series is coming out in 2018. The new comic book series will be written by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti.

Johns took to Twitter after the announcement and confirmed Beast Boy would be part of the series. ‘Titans’ will feature Dick Grayson, Starfire, and Raven.

‘Titans’ follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes. ‘Titans’ is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

The series is in early stages of production and will air on a DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service in 2018.

Beast Boy

About Beast Boy (Garfield Logan):
As a young child, Garfield Logan lived with his scientist parents in Africa, who were developing “reverse evolution” to bring back extinct creatures. He received a certain amount of abuse from these parents, consequently becoming increasingly reclusive. Garfield contracted a rare illness called Sakutia, which is lethal to every species except the West African green monkey. To save his life, his father used an untested serum to change him into a West African green monkey for 24 hours, so that the virus could die out. The serum had the unintended effect of turning his skin, eyes, and hair green, and granting him the ability to metamorph into any animal of his choice. His parents later died in a boating accident; to this day, Garfield believes he could have prevented their deaths. After he is rescued from two kidnappers who forced him to use his powers to help them in their crimes, Garfield is left under the care of a court-appointed guardian, the despicable Nicholas Galtry, who renames him “Craig”. Galtry realizes that his embezzlement from the Garfield estate will be exposed when Garfield reaches maturity and receives his inheritance, and plots to kill Garfield. The villains he hires to kill Garfield are stopped by the Doom Patrol; Elasti-Girl and her husband, Steve Dayton, expose Galtry’s embezzlement and adopt Garfield. Garfield later joins the superhero team; his uniform includes a full-head purple mask with a black or yellow band across the middle of the face, and he takes the code name Beast Boy. During his membership with the Doom Patrol, Garfield has a romantic relationship with a girl from his high school named Jillian Jackson. After he saves her from Galtry (then using the alias “Arsenal”), the relationship dissolves. Beast Boy is deeply affected by the deaths of the Doom Patrol.
