The long-bubbling fan speculation is true: Drew Van Acker of Pretty Little Liars fame will be playing Garth aka Aqualad in season 2 of Titans!
TV Insider broke the news officially confirming, sharing a description from DC Comics and Warner Bros. TV that he is “a founding member of the Titans and Aquaman’s eager sidekick” who “would eventually step out from the shadow of his mentor to become his own hero as a Titan along with many other former sidekicks.”
Season 2 of Titans arrives later this year on DC Universe.
10 years of Smallville and they never get Bruce Wayne. The Arrowverse can’t seem to get Bruce Wayne. Birds of Prey didn’t get Bruce Wayne.
But Titans? They, apparently, get Bruce Wayne.
Deadline (a site that never links to us, so we won’t link to them) is reporting that Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen will be playing an older version of Bruce Wayne in Titans Season 2.
He does kind of have an Adam West look to him, doesn’t he?
Here’s the logline for the character:
After decades of fighting crime as Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne is just as driven to protect Gotham from evil as he was in his prime. Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.
Titans Season 2 premieres later this year on DC Universe.
In news that was first reported by Revenge of the Fans earlier this week (and not Deadline, who as per usual failed to acknowledge the original source), Chelsea T. Zhang has been cast in the role of Rose Wilson a.k.a. Ravager on DC Universe’s Titans.
Here’s the official description for the character; Titans Season 2 will likely be here later this year on DC Universe.
Daughter of the deadly assassin, Deathstroke, Rose Wilson was forced to undergo the same procedure that granted her father nearly superhuman abilities, becoming a weapon known as Ravager. Ever resentful, she seeks out the Titans not only for their protection but to get back at her father. Knowing how dangerous it is to be the offspring of their deadliest foe, the Titans take her in but that doesn’t necessarily mean they trust her.
Model, student, and YouTube personality Chella Man — who documented his journey of being “deaf, Genderqueer, Chinese and Jewish” on the video sharing website and has over 2.5 million views to his name — has landed the role.
Deadline broke the news — no, they don’t get a link because they don’t extend us the same luxury when we break anything. Here’s the official character description:
Son of the infamous DC villain Deathstroke (played by Esai Morales), Joseph Wilson is the Titan known as Jericho. Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact. This gentle natured yet proud hero has proven himself a formidable Titan.
Even though Arrow had what may be the definitive live-action Deathstroke in Manu Bennett, and there was a lot of promise in Joe Manganiello’s take on the character, Titans is going with a new actor in the role for Season 2.
Deadline revealed today that Esai Morales is the latest actor to wear the orange and black suit.
Here’s the official logline for the character:
Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin. While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge. To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.
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.
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.”
