Unconfirmed reports say the title of the seventh episode of the live-action Titans for the DC streaming service may have a familiar name… “Jason Todd.”
For those who know DC Comics lore, Jason Todd was the second Robin who replaced Dick Grayson in the role. The character was killed off in 1988 as part of a fan call-in; eventually, he resurfaced as the Red Hood.
In any vent, if this title is true, this could be very cool news for fans of the DC Universe…
The title is one of several purported titles for the first seven episodes, which might imply episode-by-episode introductions of each Titan on a slow basis. Here are those titles (subject to change, of course):
#1.1 “Titans” (Pilot)
#1.2 “Hawk and Dove”
#1.5 “The Doom Patrol”
#1.6 “The Messenger”
#1.7 “Jason Todd”
We are assuming “The Messenger” is not a reference to Anna Diop’s old TV show. 😉
UPDATE: It appears that Jason Todd may be played by actor named Curran Walters!
Thanks to Andy for the tip!
Enough Ra’s is enough!
Not content for us having different actors playing Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins, Arrow and Gotham, a casting breakdown posted by That Hashtag Show implies that yet another Ra’s actor may be on the way — for DC’s streaming Titans.
Here’s the breakdown so you can see it for yourself:
Male, 40s-50s, Middle Eastern, Latin, or East Indian. Seeking a young Richard Attenborough type. Fearless, manipulative, with unparalleled intelligence. Recurring guest star, seeking recognizable faces only.
Titans is coming to the still unnamed DC Comics-based streaming service which just announced a Metropolis series. Also on the service will be a third season of Young Justice, titled Young Justice: Outsiders.
Filming for the DC streaming service‘s Titans may be happening sooner than we all expected!
