Conner Kent is described as an “angsty teenager of steel” searching for purpose and the truth about his past, after apparently being experimented on by the nefarious Cadmus. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family — as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.
This seems to be an adaptation of the version of Conner Kent which could be seen in Young Justice as well as the fantastic run by Geoff Johns on the Teen Titans comics in the early 2000s.
Titans Season 2 is in production for the DC Universe subscription service.
DC Universe is premiering Doom Patrol this coming Friday, February 15, and at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, we asked if the events of this series tie in to what we saw on Titans last year.
“There are elements that were present in the Titans ‘Doom Patrol’,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said, “but I think everyone is best suited coming into this Doom Patrol understanding that we have our own continuity and our own story. And if you come in with a fresh perspective, I think that’s the best way to view this Doom Patrol,” he said.
Doom Patrol will have April Bowlby reprising the role of Rita Farr from Titans; Matthew Bomer and Brendan Fraser continue to voice Negative Man and Robotman. Timothy Dalton takes over the role of The Chief. Follow @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter for more on the show!
Photos and an official description have been released to promote “The Asylum” which is the Friday, November 23 episode of Titans on the DC Universe app.
Here’s how DC Universe describes the episode; the official photos from “The Asylum” follow below. It’s a smaller gallery than we have gotten in past weeks, but the photos do look pretty cool!
When The Messenger (recurring guest star REED BIRNEY) reveals that Rachel’s birth mother is alive and being held captive by The Organization in a mysterious psychiatric facility, Rachel is determined to rescue her. But once inside, the Titans are faced with their deepest vulnerabilities and fears.
Warner Bros. has released some official photos to promote the fifth episode of Titans.
The episode is called “Together” and here’s how they describe it:
After rescuing Rachel from Dr. Niles Caulder (Bruno Bichir), Dick and Kory hit the road with Rachel and Gar. But when the Nuclear Family again tracks them down, all four decide the time for running is over. For the first time, they work in unison. As they take on the Nuclear Family, we witness the birth of the team that will come to be known as “The Titans.”
The preview images can be found below.
A character that many have been waiting to see is in the new stills… Jason Todd as played by Curran Walters. Jason is Dick’s replacement as Robin.
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.”
DC Universe has released character videos for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft), and we’re happy to see that if the early episodes are a bit on the overly dark side, there seems to be some levity to come. The Beast Boy video, in particular, is a lot of fun.
Titans is coming our way October 12, exclusively on the DC Universe subscription service.
