A Titans TV show wouldn't work if Batman Forever's screenwriter is attached

Several days ago, the Wall Street Journal said a TV series is in the works based on Teen Titans, and would use the 1980s rendition as its closest source material. Unfortunately, a certain screenwriter's name on the project makes me feel discouraged:
Akiva Goldsman, who wrote “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Da Vinci Code,” and 1990s superhero sequels “Batman Forever” and “Batman & Robin,” is writing the “Titans” pilot, along with Marc Haimes.

Goldsman was previously attached to produce a “Teen Titans” movie at Warner Bros. that was never made.

Like most television programs in development, it’s possible that “Titans” will never actually make it to air.
With Goldsman aboard, some people familiar with his work on those two Bat-films might hope it never actually makes it to the air. WB's sent too many signals over the past couple years they have no idea how to write or market their adaptations of DC stories, and this does little to assure otherwise. Choices like Goldsman only tell everyone they're uninterested in learning from past mistakes.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
