No confirmation from the studio, but it seems that actress Conor Leslie (The Man In The High Castle, Shots Fired) has landed a role in DC’s Titans for their upcoming DC-branded streaming service… and fans are speculating that she might be Donna Troy a.k.a. Wonder Girl.
One clue of a DC involvement is that Leslie recently followed DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns on Twitter, as many actors do when they join the DC Universe.
But also, it appears that Leslie is the mystery actress in a scene recently shot in Toronto that was caught by Instagram user “madgrahambino.” In the scene they were able to catch, which also features Brenton Thwaites, the character says “oh, I’ve missed you Boy Wonder,” implying a past between this character and Dick. Donna Troy definitely has a history with Dick Grayson.
You can see that video below.
We’ll let you know when or if DC confirms Conor Leslie’s casting. And beyond that… wouldn’t a Donna Troy streaming show be fun? Just saying….
A report from an entertainment blogger in Toronto spotted Brenton Thwaites (Titans’ Dick Grayson) filming for the upcoming DC streaming service series in a club with actor Curran Walters.
Said blogger, Mr. Will Wong, posted photos with both of the actors that night.
It wasn’t said who Walters is playing on the series — fan speculation originally pegged him as a potential Roy Harper — but now that Episode 7 has [possibly] been revealed as “Jason Todd,” we’re wondering if this is where we see the origins of Robin #2 who we eventually see as the Red Hood in DC Comics lore.
Walters’ previous credits include Speechless, Girl Meets World, and Game of Silence. Curran Walters has not been officially confirmed for Titans by the studio, and he certainly has not been confirmed as Jason Todd! However, keep this page bookmarked in case we see this pan out on a larger site like Deadline. A glance at Walters’ Instagram – where fans are already hashtagging #JasonTodd – does reveal that he is currently in Toronto filming… something.
Titans is already shaping up to be a must-watch when it comes to the DC digital/streaming service. With fan favorite characters announced including Dick Grayson, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and the Doom Patrol, and now the potential appearance of Jason Todd, we are really excitedly anticipating this one! Sadly, no premiere date has been announced as of yet.

Dwain Murphy will be the Doom Patrol’s Negative Man on Titans.
Den of Geek broke the news today that the Star Trek: Discovery and Rogue actor will be appearing on the upcoming live-action Titans show as Larry Trainor a.k.a. Negative Man. Look for him to make his first appearance in Episode 5, appropriately titled “The Doom Patrol.”
Here’s how the TV version of the character is described, which is pretty much the same as the character that first appeared in My Greatest Adventure comics over 50 years ago:
A pilot in the Air Force, Larry Trainor crashed his plane and was exposed to a mysterious “negative” energy. Wrapped in bandages to protect those around him, Larry struggles with this new strange power.
Cliff Steele a.k.a. Robotman has been cast for the fifth episode of DC’s upcoming Titans live-action series for their streaming service.
The episode is called “The Doom Patrol” and of course, Robotman has been one of the most prominent members of that team.
ComicBook is reporting today that Jake Michaels (Designated Survivor) has landed the role. Here’s the official description for the character from the studio:
A former race car driver, Cliff Steele was in a horrific accident that left his body uninhabitable. Cliff’s brain was saved by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder and he lives on in a powerful robotic body.
Titans is heading our way later this year.
April Bowlby, whose previous credits include Drop Dead Diva and Two and a Half Men, will be appearing on DC’s Titans as Doom Patrol member Elasti-Girl, as revealed by EW.com today.
(Before you ask, DC Comics had an Elasti-Girl long before The Incredibles did.)
Here’s the description that EW provided:
An actress on the rise, Rita Farr was exposed to a toxic gas that altered her cellular structure — which, in the comics, allows her to expand or shrink her body at will. Longing for the days of old, Rita finds a place for herself among The Doom Patrol.
The character is expected to make her first appearance in the episode appropriately called “The Doom Patrol.”
Titans is expected to be coming to the upcoming DC streaming service later this year.
Titans is now filming in Toronto, Canada, and that surely means that we’re going to be getting more casting announcements in the coming months. It’s also a sure fact that the world of the Titans is huge and that there are many roles that will surely be filled.
While our last turn at playing armchair casting directors was all wrong (and hey – it’s fine, because David Rapaport & co. have found some amazing Titans!) – we’re going to give this another go for some characters that haven’t been announced yet.
Keep in mind that none of this fantasy casting is official, though if any of these pan out, we’d more than welcome it. Additionally, it is not guaranteed that any of these characters will actually surface on the Titans live-action series that is coming to DC’s upcoming streaming service.

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.
