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!
