Today has been a momentous day for DC fans after the premiere of the Titans trailer and the Geoff Johns spotlight panel at San Diego Comic Con 2018, where the producer of the exclusive web series which is set to premiere on the premium DC Universe streaming service gave confirmation about two major characters who are set to debut on the show.
Johns broke the news today that the rumors surrounding a possible appearance from Jason Todd/Red Hood and Donna Troy on Titans were in fact true. These rumors were already given further credence after set photos of Jason Todd in civilian clothes surfaced last month featuring Girl Meets World star Curran Walters. The Blacklist’s Conor Leslie is set to play Donna Troy, the sidekick to Wonder Woman.
It is not currently known as to what capacity the two iconic heroes and former Teen Titans members will serve in Titans, if they will suit up, or become members of the team by the end of the first season. Either way though this is splendid news for those who are fans of the characters.
DC’s Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Dwain Murphy as Negative Man, Jake Michaels as Cliff Steel, April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, and Conor Leslie as Wonder Girl, with Curran Walters set to appear as Jason Todd.
Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and lovable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
Titans is set to premiere in Fall 2018 on DC Universe.
