The trailer has arrived for the second season of DC Universe series Titans.
While its exciting to have Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Kory Anders/Starfire (Anna Diop), Rachel Rot/Raven (Teagan Croft), and Gar Logan/Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) among those back, the “first look” trailer below offers up some enticing introductions. Yes, Bruce Wayne/Batman is in this season, played by Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont/Friendzone in the HBO phenomenon). There’s also Conner Kent/Superboy (Joshua Orpin), Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (Esai Morales), and… Krypto the Super Good Boy! That’s right, we’re getting a superdog!
Season 1 was a solid, entertaining first chapter, its confident tone and slick direction making up for some frustrating pacing and some awkward effects (Beast Boy…). Season 2 looks damn good from this one-minute trailer, and having already established the groundwork should make for a better flow as the ensemble expands. Other new characters include Slade’s daughter Rose Wilson/Ravager (Chelsea Zhang), Slade’s mute son Joseph Wilson/Jericho (Chella Man), and Lex Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy Graves (Natalie Gumede). Bring it.
The second season of Titans will begin on the DC Universe streaming service on September 6. Netflix released the first season internationally, including in Australia. No release date on that streaming service as yet.
