Teen Titans to the Big Screen?

Warner Bros. has started movement on a Teen Titans movie with Akiva Goldsman producing and BSG stud Mark Verheiden writing. The Hollywood Reporter says:

Goldsman said the tone will be consistent with such recent Warners' comic book fare as "Batman Begins," "Superman Returns" and the upcoming "Watchmen."

That could be good news, I suppose.

Bonus: This is a shout-out to the conservative superstar intellectual who, after seeing me mention TT #36 in this essay emailed in saying, "Oh, the cover with Lightning and Thunder in the rain? I loved that cover." So hot.

Double Bonus: Remember how coveted the Teen Titans books were back in the '80s? Turns out you can buy the entire run for something like $200 now. Seriously. The 1980 New Teen Titans #1 is $24. The fancy, Baxter-paper line has #1 for $3.75 I paid $10 for that in 1985 dollars!

Despite what you may have heard, comic books are not a great financial investment.

Hmmm. Galley Wife is intrigued by this statement that comic books are not a great financial investment...does this mean more closet space? : )

After the Teen Titans cartoon, you'll forgive me for not having high hopes.
