Yes, Starfire Will Get A Comics-Accurate Costume On Titans

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.”

Titans: DC Daily Shows Robins In Action

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!”

New Photos Confirm Curran Walters As 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.”

Could We Be Getting Conner Kent (Superboy) On Titans?

Might a popular character from post-2000 Titans comics lore (as well as Young Justice) be headed to the live-action Titans series for the DC Universe streaming service?

That seems very likely considering a casting breakdown obtained by That Hashtag Show for Titans Episode 13 which will be the season finale.

Here’s how THS describes it:

Being referred to as “David”, he is a 20s-something Caucasian male with dark hair who would guest star in the 13th episode, which is the season 1 finale. “David” is described as a powerful individual who is merciless, so much so that he has recently unleashed chaos to the people who have been keeping “David” as a prisoner in a mysterious lab. When we find “David”, he will have recently have escaped this lab. Whoever we see in the role would have a series regular option for consecutive seasons of Titans.

Superboy famously escaped from a lab in his very first appearance way back around the “Reign of the Supermen” story in DC Comics.

If this indeed pans out to being the character who eventually took on the human name Conner Kent, it would be the second live-action version of the character, with the first being played by Lucas Grabeel in the final season of Smallville. In many versions of continuity Conner is a clone made from the DNA of both Superman and Lex Luthor – a notion, funny enough, first speculated by a young letter writer named Geoffrey Johns in an early Superboy comic book letters column.

Titans Episode Titles Confirm “Donna Troy”

Titles for the 8th and 9th episodes of the live-action Titans TV series have surfaced, and one of those two confirms the reports from last week that “Wonder Girl” Donna Troy is coming to the show.

Episode 8 is called “Angela,” and the only Angela we can think of in the world of the Teen Titans is Raven’s mother, Angela Roth, who we believe is being played by Twin Peaks’ Sherilyn Fenn.

Titans Episode 9 is a big one. “Donna Troy.” Conor Leslie appears in this episode. Fans of DC Comics and Teen Titans lore know Donna is one of the most major characters in this story, and we can’t wait to see her.

You can find compiled Titans spoilers at our TitansTV Spoilers Page; yes, we know it’s due for an update.

Titans is coming to the DC Comics streaming service when it launches, hopefully later this year.

Our thanks to Andy for the tip.

Is Curran Walters Playing Jason Todd On Titans?

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.
