Titans Recruits An Arrow Villain & Casts Acolyte

A villain that was seen on The CW series Arrow may be in the first episode of the upcoming live-action Titans series, seemingly confirming that the show will take place in a totally different universe.

The IMDb page for Titans lists actor Mark Antony Krupa (Rogue) as playing Konstantin Kovar. First appearing in DC Comics with Teen Titans #18 back in 1968 and created by Marv Wolfman and the late Len Wein, Kovar is the father of the Titans-affiliated character Leonid Kovar who was eventually known as Red Star. Could this mean that Red Star might show up on the series as well? Maybe!

Konstantin Kovar was a major figure in the Arrow Season 5 flashbacks where he was played by Dolph Lundgren.

Do note that this casting is not yet officially confirmed by the studio; we have reached out and hopefully we will get confirmation soon.

In addition to the Kovar casting, it looks like Titans has found their villain, the Acolyte. Jarreth Merz (MacGyver, Six, Ben-Hur, ER) is listed as playing the role. The recent Twitter follows from Mr. Merz include Titans’ Brenton Thwaites which could lead credence to the accuracy of this casting.

Titans is coming to the DC Comics streaming service in 2018. Browse TitansTV for some photos and other news related to the show!

Harley Quinn To Appear On Titans (Go With It)

And the official victor for most clickbait-y of clickbait headlines goes to… that one up above.

Even if it’s only true on a technicality.

Comic Con News has uncovered evidence that points to the notion that Twin Peaks’ Sherilyn Fenn has signed on for an undisclosed role in the upcoming Titans show for the DC Comics streaming service. The site noted that Fenn had retweeted the first photo of Brenton Thwaites as Robin;  more telling is that the actress, who was recently filming in Toronto, tweeted a photo of herself that appears to be with Teagan Croft (Raven) on Wednesday. There was also another photo of the two on Instagram.

Perhaps she is playing Raven’s mom? And is Raven’s mother a nurse, as Fenn has posted some pictures in scrubs recently?

(Also, sadly, if that is Croft, she still has blonde hair – we really hoped they’d darken it for the show.)

So what does this have to do with Harley Quinn?

Fenn played Dr. Harleen Quinzel in the pilot episode of the WB’s Birds of Prey, becoming more and more manic like the “Harley” we all know and love as the pilot went on. Sadly, Fenn didn’t stay with the project as it went to series, so she was replaced by Mia Sara.

So… no, Harley Quinn is not going to be on Titans… yet… but at least an actress that played her seems to be coming on.

No confirmation has come yet from the studio, but if this pans out, it’s very exciting news indeed!

Donna Troy (Wonder Girl) May Be Coming To Titans

DC’s upcoming Titans series for their still unnamed streaming service may be getting a Wonder-ful addition.

That Hashtag Show has gotten a hold of yet another casting breakdown, and this one is for a character that… sounds very much like a certain Titans mainstay — specifically, Donna Troy, a.k.a. Wonder Girl.

Here’s the breakdown:

[RUTH GIBBS] Female, 20s, Caucasian or Latina or Middle Eastern, or ethnically ambiguous. Confident and kick ass. Educated. RECURRING GUEST STAR THIS SEASON WITH AN OPTION FOR SERIES REGULAR NEXT SEASON.

“Ruth Gibbs” is clearly an alias, as many other casting notices for this series have had. The notion that there’s an option to become a series regular tells us that this is an important figure in Titans lore — and there are very few as important as Donna, at least when it comes to characters not already announced for the show and/or appearing in movies or the Arrowverse.

Titans will launch with the DC Comics streaming service in 2018.

Titans First Look Photo: Brenton Thwaites as Robin!

Warner Bros. has released their first official photo of Brenton Thwaites in costume as Dick Grayson (Robin) from their upcoming DC Comics-based series Titans which is coming from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

A Detective Friend Of Nightwing’s May Be Coming To Titans

When news came last night that Hawk and Dove were coming to this iteration of Titans, it wouldn’t have been news to fans of That Hashtag Show, who broke that information way back on August 31… including the notion that DC was interested in Alan Ritchson for the role.

There was one character they mentioned, however, who has not yet been an announced part of the show, but if their track record is any indication, we’ll have confirmation soon.

That role is Detective Amy Rohrbach, a character from Chuck Dixon’s acclaimed run of Nightwing comics and one of the few good cops in Bludhaven. Here’s the character breakdown courtesy of that site:

DET. AMY ROHRBACH: Supporting Female (25-35) [OPEN] She is the detective alongside Dick Grayson who knows more than she lets on. Pretty, has tattoos.

Titans Adds Hawk & Dove; Smallville’s Aquaman Is Hawk

Proving the theory that the same dozen actors keep playing comic book roles, Alan Ritchson is now the second Aquaman to take on a second superheroic role as he has joined the cast of Titans in a recurring role as Hawk of Hawk & Dove fame.

Ritchson played Aquaman in the highly-rated Smallville episode “Aqua” and subsequently made some return appearances in later seasons of the show.

A decade ago, TV’s second Aquaman, Justin Hartley, became TV’s first Green Arrow after his Aquaman TV pilot went nowhere. The two later teamed up in more than one episode of Smallville. Also interesting to note is that Ritchson’s Aquaman’s partner “Mera,” Elena Satine, is also soon returning to the superhero world on FOX’s The Gifted.

Joining Ritchson’s Hawk is Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger a.k.a. Dove. Dove is described as “strategic, defensive and lithe” — the opposite of Hawk’s “aggressive, offensive bruiser.”

Minka Kelly also has a Smallville connection, having starred in the Charlie’s Angels update that was created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar in 2011.

Hawk & Dove will be recurring on Titans Season 1 with the potential of becoming season regulars in Season 2 and/or a possible Hawk & Dovespinoff series down the road.

Deadline broke this news today. Titans is coming to DC’s still-untitled streaming service next year.
