I just saw Batman murder-face a bunch of GCPD, The Joker, Two-Face, and countless others. Yes, this show exists outside of the DCU and greater canon but that’s what ‘Elseworlds’ is all about. Titans is an Elseworlds tale and it’s a brilliant one. This show continues to surprise me every week and with the season finale coming next week, we’re going to see BATMAN ON TELEVISION. I can’t get my head wrapped around this.

If you’re not on DCUNIVERSE then I HIGHLY recommend you get on it, especially at this price. Thank you Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and everyone else who works on this show because it’s bloody brilliant.

DC UNIVERSE released today the final trailer for the first season finale of acclaimed original series Titans. Fans have been speculating if and when a major DC fan-favorite would make an appearance in the first season and this trailer reveals that it all comes down to the ultimate face-off: Robin vs. Batman. Don’t miss the exciting finale airing on December 21. See the trailer here: https://youtu.be/O8bl2Vurk7M
