The trailer for DC Universe’s highly anticipated Titans Season Two has landed, and there is plenty of reason to be excited about it.
Now that everyone has seen the trailer, we break down what to expect from the next season of Titans.
The first Robin, Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), was clearly the star of the first season of Titans, but fans did have the pleasure of meeting his successor, Jason Todd (Curran Walters).
And Todd has now joined the Titans, which he obnoxiously announces to a crew of unsuspecting journalists in the trailer. The two Robins didn’t see eye-to-eye in the first season, and it seems like that trend might be continuing in Titans Season Two.
Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, was alluded to for the majority of Season One, with Batman only appearing in the season finale as a nightmare version of Grayson’s Trigon-infected mind.
But Wayne will be playing a larger role in this season. Iain Glen’s Wayne appears in the opening shots of the trailer, beside an exasperated Grayson. Their relationship was strained (to put it mildly) in Season One—can we expect to see an improvement this time around?
Aside from Wayne, Grayson, and Todd, no other Bat-Family members appear in the trailer. Barbara Gordon only got a passing mention in the Season One finale, but there has been no news of her appearance since. Perhaps in Season Three?
Season One of Titans was all about setting up the young superhero team. By the end of the season, the team comprised Robin, Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), and Donna Troy (Conor Leslie). The anti-hero duo Dove (Minka Kelly) and Hawk (Alan Ritchson) joined the team occasionally, but spent most of the time on the periphery.
In Titans Season Two, we get several glimpses of the original Titans team when Hawk and Dove were permanent members, alongside Aqualad (Drew Van Acker).
Superboy (Joshua Orpin), who also appears in the trailer, does not seem to be part of the Titans, however. Are we to assume that he will be a late addition to the team?
Alongside the aforementioned Titans, the Season Two trailer also includes the first look at Deathstroke (Esai Morales), as well as Jericho (Chella Man), and Ravager (Chelsea Zhang).
New (and Old?) Suits
The Titans Season Two trailer has a lot of superhero suits on display. Raven has a comic-accurate suit, including a red gem in her forehead. This is likely a sign that the Titans have already defeated Trigon (Seamus Deaver).
We see Donna Troy in her Wonder Girl suit. Though a darker red shade than her comic counterpart’s, the suit looks well-made and powerful. This is clearly a flashback because the scene has Grayson’s Robin in it.
We barely get a few glimpses of Starfire, but it does look like she’s finally been able to shed her purple evening dress for something more comfortable.
Hawk and Dove’s uniforms haven’t changed, either in the flashback or the present, which is slightly disappointing. Theirs are the only ones that continue to look ungainly and uncomfortable, as compared to the Robins, Wonder Girl, and Aqualad, whose suits look sleek.
There is still no sign of Nightwing. Instead we get several moments of Grayson in his Robin suit—whether these are all flashbacks or dream sequences, we don’t yet know. Grayson had dropped the Robin mantle in Season One, so when is he going to become Nightwing?
From what we’ve seen in the trailer, the production design looks much better than last year, which should cause excitement for both fans and critics.
When Can We See Titans Season Two?
Titans Season Two premieres on DC Universe on September 6, 2019. However, the DC Universe streaming service is only available in the United States and there is as yet, no news as to when international audiences will be able to watch the show.
The first season was eventually shown on Netflix, a few months after the finale aired on DC Universe. International audiences can presumably hope for a similar arrangement this year, but there is no confirmation as of yet.
If the Netflix deal is confirmed, international viewers will be able to watch the show in late 2019 or early 2020.
