Opinion: Titans' F Batman

TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
I don't mind adult languages on shows, but I didn’t think it was appropriate to use in a commercial (trailer) for the upcoming Titans DC Streaming show. Imagine if you open up your favorite magazine and see an advertisement for Titans with the words “F--- Batman” in the center of the spread. You have to understand that a lot of people, including children who loves Teen Titans Go!, watched this trailer and was shocked to hear this. I’m sure there are F words in a lot of trailers, but at the moment, I can’t remember ever watching a trailer and hearing foul languages. That’s because most trailers follow the MPAA standards, which, personally speaking, DC should have attempted to use those guidelines. I’m not just talking about language, but also maybe curb (no pun intended) down the violence, etc. I understand that DC wanted to set the tone (dark and mature) for the upcoming show, but maybe they could have addressed that in an uncensored Red Band version with full warning and a MPAA version for the general watching public.

It's still too early for me to spend $75 a year (or $7.99 a month) for this, sight unseen. I’ll wait until it arrives and give the free seven day trial a chance.
