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.
Almost every view that fans have gotten of Anna Diop as Kory a.k.a. Starfire on DC Universe’s Titans (premiering October 12 on DC Universe) has had the character in an outfit that many have said unkind things about. Even with that said, no official look has been released as Starfire in a comic-accurate costume.
ComicBook.com asked Diop about this and she did, indeed, confirm that she will have Starfire’s traditional look.
“As soon as I put it on, everyone was flipping out,” she said. “It’s awesome because it’s something that so many people have seen for so long and it means so much to people and this is the first time we’re bringing it to life, but you know — our story takes its time. It takes its time, it’s an origin story, so it takes its time in the characters coming to this place where you see them and the way that everyone’s always known. I hope that the audience can be patient with us and have fun with us. It’s a ride, and it’s a fun one.”
DC Universe has released character videos for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft), and we’re happy to see that if the early episodes are a bit on the overly dark side, there seems to be some levity to come. The Beast Boy video, in particular, is a lot of fun.
Titans is coming our way October 12, exclusively on the DC Universe subscription service.
In honor of Batman Day, DC Universe’s “DC Daily” show has released a special Titans preview clip on today’s installment — a clip featuring Robins Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) in action… and/or comparing notes on an elevator.
Best Robin Tim Drake sat this one out.
Dick Grayson is, of course, a part of Titans from the very first episode which will be released October 12 on the DC Universe app. We’ll be seeing Jason Todd later on in the first season, with there even being an episode called “Jason Todd!”

Here at TitansTV we reported on Curran Walters playing Jason Todd, oh… about seven months ago. But today, IGN exclusively revealed some photos of Walters in character from the first season of Titans, therefore officially confirming his presence.
For those who don’t know the comics, Jason Todd was the second Robin who followed Dick Grayson in the role. He famously died in the “Death in the Family” storyline but was later revealed as the very alive Red Hood, an alias he currently uses in DC Comics. There’s a Titans episode called “Jason Todd” coming up so chances are good that we’ll be seeing him there.
“What I really love about [Jason] as a character is the unbridled sense of self that he has – there’s a lack of… maybe self-awareness, but for sure self-consciousness in terms of how he comports himself and how he moves through the world,” Titans Executive Producer Greg Walker told IGN. “He’s completely seemingly unaffected by darkness – he kind of embraces it or walks right through it. He’s a breath of fresh air and that’s what I love about him, he’s got a punk rock, no-holds-barred attitude that’s massively unburdened. There’s a lot of energy that comes with that.”
“It’s kind of like one of those classic covers of the books, original versus number 2, and in many ways, you really see that [in the photos]. This encapsulates the tension, the energy between these two guys. It’s like running into your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend, minus the sexual tension,” Walker added. “You get to watch Dick Grayson struggle when he sees another Robin and how that Robin is different and has a different relationship with ‘dad.’ And the second child gets away with stuff the first child would never get away with in a family, and ours is really a family show.”
Some official preview images have been released to promote the first two episodes of Titans on DC Universe!
Titans premieres Friday, October 12 and the new photos — from episodes titled “Titans” and “Hawk and Dove” — feature several key figures, including Robin/Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Raven/Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), Starfire/Koriand’r (Anna Diop). Hawk/Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson), and Dove/Dawn Grainger (Minka Kelly!)
There’s some superhero action within as well as some quiet moments.
