Although TNT passed on a live-action drama based on DC Comics' "Teen Titans," we may not have seen the last of the project.

Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment's chief creative officer, told TVLine the company had known about TNT's decision "months and months and months" before the announcement. What's more, DC appears undaunted.

“We have plans for 'Titans,'” Johns said. “It’s a huge piece of DC, and we have plans.”

The first details of a potential "Titans" drama surfaced in September 2014 with reports that Akiva Goldsman and Mark Haimes had been tapped to write a pilot that would include such characters as Dick Grayson, Starfire and Raven.

But while the pilot was expected to film sometime last year, "Titans" was nowhere to be seen on TNT's fall and winter schedule.

The cable channel finally confirmed last month that it wasn't moving forward with the project, with President Kevin Reilly saying simply that they "decided it wasn’t where we wanted to go.”
