Titans Casts Superboy For Season 2

Hello and welcome back to TitansTV!

Sadly, a big server crash got rid of most of our posts from mid-November on… but the site is back! Our Doom Patrol content, though, has migrated on to KSiteTV.

In any event, we have news – Superboy has been cast for Titans Season 2!

Sadly, it’s not Matthew Daddario who we were hoping for at TitansTV Tower, but instead, they got Australian actor Joshua Orpin.

Here’s how TV Line describes the character:

Conner Kent is described as an “angsty teenager of steel” searching for purpose and the truth about his past, after apparently being experimented on by the nefarious Cadmus. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family — as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.

This seems to be an adaptation of the version of Conner Kent which could be seen in Young Justice as well as the fantastic run by Geoff Johns on the Teen Titans comics in the early 2000s.

Titans Season 2 is in production for the DC Universe subscription service.

The Doom Patrol Is Separate From Titans Continuity

DC Universe is premiering Doom Patrol this coming Friday, February 15, and at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, we asked if the events of this series tie in to what we saw on Titans last year.

“There are elements that were present in the Titans ‘Doom Patrol’,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said, “but I think everyone is best suited coming into this Doom Patrol understanding that we have our own continuity and our own story. And if you come in with a fresh perspective, I think that’s the best way to view this Doom Patrol,” he said.

Doom Patrol will have April Bowlby reprising the role of Rita Farr from Titans; Matthew Bomer and Brendan Fraser continue to voice Negative Man and Robotman. Timothy Dalton takes over the role of The Chief. Follow @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter for more on the show!

Doom Patrol: Descriptions For The First Two Episodes

Doom Patrol will premiere February 15 exclusively on the DC Universe service, and they have made descriptions available for the first two episodes!

Hopefully we’ll have some photos soon.

Here are those descriptions:

Episode 1: “Pilot”

In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away.  However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).

Episode 2: “Donkey Patrol”

Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.

Titans Episode 7 “The Asylum” Images & Description

Photos and an official description have been released to promote “The Asylum” which is the Friday, November 23 episode of Titans on the DC Universe app.

Here’s how DC Universe describes the episode; the official photos from “The Asylum” follow below. It’s a smaller gallery than we have gotten in past weeks, but the photos do look pretty cool!

When The Messenger (recurring guest star REED BIRNEY) reveals that Rachel’s birth mother is alive and being held captive by The Organization in a mysterious psychiatric facility, Rachel is determined to rescue her. But once inside, the Titans are faced with their deepest vulnerabilities and fears.

Titans Episode 5 Photos: “Together” with Jason Todd

Warner Bros. has released some official photos to promote the fifth episode of Titans.

The episode is called “Together” and here’s how they describe it:

After rescuing Rachel from Dr. Niles Caulder (Bruno Bichir), Dick and Kory hit the road with Rachel and Gar. But when the Nuclear Family again tracks them down, all four decide the time for running is over. For the first time, they work in unison. As they take on the Nuclear Family, we witness the birth of the team that will come to be known as “The Titans.”

The preview images can be found below.

A character that many have been waiting to see is in the new stills… Jason Todd as played by Curran Walters. Jason is Dick’s replacement as Robin.
