Could Titans Cross Over With The Arrowverse?

One still-persisting question about DC’s Titans for their streaming service is whether or not the show exists in the same world as the “Arrowverse” of series including Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.

We’ve even wondered, ourselves, if Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) might be speeding over to the show.

On the bright side, it would add a cohesion to the DC world of TV; on the other, it would create some limitations; for example, Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke would have to be the very busy Manu Bennett.

At the recent ACE Comic Con, a fan asked Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim if we will be seeing a crossover… and here’s what he said:

“Great question, again, above my pay grade. I will say this, the one thing I’ve learned is ‘never say never.’ I could not begin to tell you how often we say to each other, ‘We never thought any of this was going to happen. We never thought we’d see all these characters. We never thought there’d be a universe.’ So, never say never, but in terms of which characters be on which shows, what’s part of the universe, above my pay grade and probably that’s a good thing.”

Titans is coming to the DC streaming service in 2018.

Donna Troy (Wonder Girl) May Be Coming To Titans

DC’s upcoming Titans series for their still unnamed streaming service may be getting a Wonder-ful addition.

That Hashtag Show has gotten a hold of yet another casting breakdown, and this one is for a character that… sounds very much like a certain Titans mainstay — specifically, Donna Troy, a.k.a. Wonder Girl.

Here’s the breakdown:

[RUTH GIBBS] Female, 20s, Caucasian or Latina or Middle Eastern, or ethnically ambiguous. Confident and kick ass. Educated. RECURRING GUEST STAR THIS SEASON WITH AN OPTION FOR SERIES REGULAR NEXT SEASON.

“Ruth Gibbs” is clearly an alias, as many other casting notices for this series have had. The notion that there’s an option to become a series regular tells us that this is an important figure in Titans lore — and there are very few as important as Donna, at least when it comes to characters not already announced for the show and/or appearing in movies or the Arrowverse.

Titans will launch with the DC Comics streaming service in 2018.

Titans’ Brenton Thwaites Shares Another Robin Pic

Hot on the heels of the first reveal of the Robin costume earlier this week, actor Brenton Thwaites who is playing Robin a.k.a. Dick Grayson in the upcoming live-action Titans series shared another photo of him wearing the famous outfit on Instagram.

Titans is due in 2018 on the upcoming DC Comics streaming service.

“Here we go!!!
First fight scene with my R
Kicking ass in a downtown Gotham alleyway,” read Thwaites’ Instagram post.

Of course, the costume is pretty well covered underneath a coat, but it’s still nice to see more of the costume. (Fluffy top part clearly not part of the costume.) It’s also interesting to note that Thwaites mentioned “downtown Gotham” which we are assuming is a location in the first episode.

Will we see Robin only in flashbacks? Is he going to be Nightwing? So many questions still left to be answered as Titans filming goes on up in Toronto.

Hopefully we’ll have some more cast photos in the future.

Ryan Potter Is Titans’ Beast Boy – And He Is Green!

It was just a few days ago that, in a conversation, TitansTV’s Craig Byrne mentioned to a friend that Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) would be a great choice for Beast Boy…. well, guess what: It’s happening.

Deadline is reporting that Potter has landed that last big role in the DC streaming service Titans series… and revealing that his skin and hair will be green! Here’s how the TV version of the character is described:

As a child, Potter’s Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects.  Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.

Ryan Potter joins Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Teagan Croft in this group of Titans;  Lindsey Gort is Detective Amy Rohrbach, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will be appearing as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that the show will premiere in 2018.

Titans Adds A Carrie Diaries Alum

Someone from The Carrie Diaries is joining the cast of Titans!

No, AnnaSophia Robb isn’t playing Wonder Girl — but the show’s “Samantha,” Lindsey Gort, is joining the cast of the upcoming DC Digital Service Titans series as Det. Amy Rohrbach – a role that was originally revealed as being a part of the show a few weeks ago.

The casting news came courtesy of TV Line today.

Titans is due sometime next year, and will star Brenton Thwaites as Robin Nightwing Dick Grayson.

A Detective Friend Of Nightwing’s May Be Coming To Titans

When news came last night that Hawk and Dove were coming to this iteration of Titans, it wouldn’t have been news to fans of That Hashtag Show, who broke that information way back on August 31… including the notion that DC was interested in Alan Ritchson for the role.

There was one character they mentioned, however, who has not yet been an announced part of the show, but if their track record is any indication, we’ll have confirmation soon.

That role is Detective Amy Rohrbach, a character from Chuck Dixon’s acclaimed run of Nightwing comics and one of the few good cops in Bludhaven. Here’s the character breakdown courtesy of that site:

DET. AMY ROHRBACH: Supporting Female (25-35) [OPEN] She is the detective alongside Dick Grayson who knows more than she lets on. Pretty, has tattoos.

BossLogic Shares Artwork Of Alan Ritchson As Hawk

The extremely talented BossLogic has shared some artwork on Twitter, depicting Alan Ritchson in a costume as Hawk.

The costume on Titans probably won’t match this, but if we’re going for comics-accurate, you can’t do much better than this. Enjoy! You can find BossLogic’s Twitter feed here.
