All set to join the DC canon characters will be Gotham City Police Department Commissioner Barbara Gordon and Dr Jonathan Crane, also known as the Scarecrow, the Arkham Asylum inmate who offers his services as a profiler and consultant for the Gotham City Police Department. This will be fun to watch now, won’t it?
In a sneak peek, Walker shared with fans that Nightwing and Barbara Gordon will deal with the mistakes of their parents and it’ll turn a lot more difficult than anybody else thought.
What else to expect from Season 3:
Walker also discussed the season finale wherein the group of superheroes lose Jason Todd, a.k.a. Robin, played by Curran Walters. Speaking about the future arc of the hero, Walker quoted an African proverb, “A child that is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth. That child comes back in the form of Red Hood.”
Thus, Walters will return as Red Hood in Season three. Speaking about his role, Curran admitted that he does feel some pressure. The actor has waited for this a while now and is ready to deliver his one hundred per cent as an old friend turned foe.
In the comic books, Jason is brought to life via a Lazarus Pit after being murdered by Joker and transitions into Red Hood, his alter-ego from Robin. Infuriated that his dear friend, Batman hasn’t avenged his death, Red Hood terrorizes his former friend and mentor. In the Titans, one can expect this infuriation directed towards the group of superheroes who reject him.
The show will now move out of San Francisco and see the heroes enter Gotham as they meet new friends and face new threats.
Expected Release Date:
There has been no official announcement but reports say that the new season could be available for the fans to stream not before 2021 considering filming hasn’t resumed due to the pandemic.
Reprising their roles will be Anna Diop as Starfire Brenton, Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, Chelsea Zhang as Ravager, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, Conor Leslie as Donna Troy and Drew Van Acker as Aqualad (assuming they return to life).
In association with Warner Bros. Television and produced by Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions, Titans is developed by Akiva Goldsman & Geoff Johns & Greg Berlanti, based on characters from DC.
