YO! That WOULD be crazy. That second idea though... I'll be honest. In any other context, that would just piss me off IMMENSELY, but I've already accepted a long time ago that the Arrowverse takes place in some weird alt universe from normal DC continuity. It's evident from the way they kinda dance around some key elements of comic book stories they adapt, the fact that Flash needs a team that keeps growing every season for some reason, the fact that THIS many superheroes have united without a single member of the trinity ever having been involved, and everyone has a leather fetish. The Arrowverse shows are great for what they are, but I'm more hoping/relying the Titans universe gives me a little more of a complete DC universe feel I crave so much, with more actual appearances and relevance of certain characters and less references and easter eggs that are glossed over afterwards.
Now THAT idea, I can get behind. Can't believe I didn't think of that before actually. Makes a lot of sense. It's kind of like Teen Titans season 1 and 5. I hope that's the route they're going. The only series regulars they've revealed so far are Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Raven. The rest are recurring, maybe they'll team up with Cyborg once and rotate his cast slot until they circle back to Cyborg as a main character, but it seems like we'll get Donna before then. Guess that only leaves ginger Wally West and we the New Teen Titans lineup.
And... wow. That uh... yeah that's definitely weird. I mean, when I think of Hawk I think angry bruiser, the Raphael type. But that just sounds way too specific and thought out for that to be the case in this instance. Like, was he a closet racist or something? What was even his motivation for that?
