Titans Getting Ready As Anna Diop Gets VFX Scan For Starfire

The new Titans series seems to be moving forward. The new series includes Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Tegan Croft as Raven, Anna Diop as Starfire, Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach, Minka Kelly as Dove and Alan Ritchson as Hawk. This was originally planned for TNT but is now headed for a DC branded streaming service with Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns involved.

Anna Diop

Last news we'd gotten on this project was a while back with the casting of Hawk & Dove and word was that they were still looking for their Beast Boy. We now know that at least pre-production has begun as Diop shared on her social media yesterday the video below.

 

No, she's not in the world's smallest dance club. That is the set up for visual effects scanning. Its takes images from every angle to create a 3D model of the actor that they can then use for visual effects. Similar to the way The Flash is able to use a computer generated version of Grant Gustin in many of the fight scenes… like what you see in the video below.

A character like Dick Grayson can be done with a lot of practical effects similar to the stunts done on Arrow. But when you look at the characters of Starfire, Beast Boy and even Raven, the show is going to need to do a lot of visual effects.
