Though the upcoming Titans series may contain a few oddballs such as Hawk and Dove, it can at least lay claim to featuring quintessential team members such as Robin, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire. But as the show continues to grow, it only makes sense that the producers add more characters from the comic books to the mix.
As is normally the case whenever a known superhero is being cast for any project, code names are bound to be utilized so secrets don’t get out. But if you have knowledgeable geeks boasting decent analytical skills who are paying attention, well, then it’s going to be somewhat difficult to keep things under wraps.
Case in point, check out the character breakdown for “David,” whom That Hashtag Show has learned will be showing up in season 1’s concluding episode:
“[‘David’] is a 20s-something Caucasian male with dark hair who would guest star in the 13th episode, which is the season 1 finale. ‘David’ is described as a powerful individual who is merciless, so much so that he has recently unleashed chaos to the people who have been keeping ‘David’ as a prisoner in a mysterious lab. When we find ‘David,’ he will have recently have escaped this lab. Whoever we see in the role would have a series regular option for consecutive seasons of Titans.”
After reading that, wouldn’t you say “David” is unequivocally Conner Kent AKA Superboy? If not, DC may have to sue themselves for copyright infringement because that is one of the most dead-on descriptions for the Boy of Steel we’ve ever seen.
To date, this iteration of Superboy has made some notable appearances outside of comics, having appeared on Smallville during its tenth season and eventually as a key member of Young Justice‘s principal cast, the latter of which will soon be returning for a third season.
Titans premieres sometime later this year on the DC Universe streaming service and as usual, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we learn more.
