DC Universe's Titans: All The Reshoots Explained

.

Titans saw significant alterations. Characters drop in and out of focus, arcs aren't quite resolved, and there are a few moments that are confusing rather than effective.
Titans was subjected to extensive reshoots, which cut an original 13-episode first season down to just 11 episodes.
The story seems to have been compressed and refocused. The original season finale has been "cannibalized" to become the season 2 premiere. 

• the reshoots led to an increased focus on Brenton Thwaites' Dick Grayson, strengthening his character arc and essentially making him the star of the show. This change in focus made Batman the main villain of Titans season 1.

• the Trigon plot, which was ostensibly the A-plot of the entire season, was compressed and ultimately left unresolved.
there's some evidence he was defeated in the original season finale.

• early episodes titled 'Starfire' and 'Rachel' were cut down into a single episode, 'Origins'.

• 'Asylum' was originally called 'Angela', suggesting a bigger focus on Raven's mother, which makes sense with an original focus more centered on Trigon. 

• Beast Boy's seems to have been truncated; he's almost entirely absent from the first few episodes, there was an extended subplot building up to 'Doom Patrol', which was originally episode 5 but got moved forward.

Eddie Redmayne Explains His Performance In "Jupiter Ascending"

UkJx.gif

Have you seen Jupiter Ascending? You really should skip it, except for one thing: Eddie Redmayne's what-the-fuck performance as an evil space dictator. His over-the-top performance became a meme, and he won a Razzie for Worst Performance.

Now, he gave an interview to explain himself. Apparently his character had his larynx ripped out by a wolf man. But we know the truth: Balem Abrasax was an over-the-top diva.



Fav bad performance in a movie or TV show?

Cardi B 'sickened' after feeling racially attacked at Australian airport



- After a 10-hour flight to Australia, Cardi covered her face upon landing & didn't speak - which angered the mobbing paparazzi.
- Paps were warned to follow the rules & not mob.
- In a later Insta-live, Cardi said she felt "sickened" with the undertones when a "white male" paparazzo shouted in response, "You're in Australia now! You're playing by our rules. Let's be clear on that!."
- They continued taunting: "Why the blanket, Cardi? Having an identify crisis or something? Give us a picture!"
- She said of the incident: "It don't sit well with me when a white man tells me that shit."

- A white woman with a camera also asked to take a photo with Cardi, but was rebuffed by her entourage.
- That woman then insulted Cardi: "No wonder your husband left you!"
- Cardi's publicist Patience went off on the woman.
- Cardi later said she was uncomfortable when the woman started to "act like the victim" with exaggerated mannerisms.
- "We be looking like fucking animals because people provoke you and say vile shit... Is that how you see colored people?"

- "I just want to go home."
- She wanted her mom to fly to Australia for New Year's but was glad she didn't.

- Australian headlines accused her of having a "diva tantrum", "covering her head" & "snapping at photographers".
