A Titans TV show wouldn't work well with Akiva Goldsman on board
How much of the decision not to move forward with the DC Comics project Titans, also from Warner Bros., was based on the fact that you don’t own it?Oh, some talent he's got alright. Many comic and movie buffs alike would surely attest that he was one of the clowns who brought down the original Batman series with the 3rd and 4th movies with its garish, overblown storytelling. Why else does Reilly think there wasn't any script? Because Goldsman doesn't have what it takes to make one. I really wish they wouldn't sugarcoat his record.
It wasn't. Akiva [Goldsman] is a talented guy, [but] the script just wasn't there. There is an unbelievable glut of superhero things in the market right now and if you have a really good one, clearly people are up for it. But I just don't think that there's a need for one that, for me, at least on paper didn't seem to be screaming to get made.
And that's why most people familiar with those duds wouldn't be disappointed the Titans TV project hasn't gotten off the ground at TNT. Bad screenwriters don't bolster confidence the producers knew what they're doing.
