Watch: It’s All Going Down In Gotham In Titans Season 3 Trailer

It’s all going down in Gotham in this epic first trailer for Titans season 3. which debuts on HBO Max in just under a month’s time. This third run of the former DC Universe show will dive deeper into the Batman mythos than ever before, and this trailer debuts our first looks at a number of the Dark Knight’s allies and enemies in action. Check it out via the player above.

The trailer teases that the new season will kick off with the apparent death of Jason Todd (Curran Walters) and the rise of a mysterious new masked vigilante, Red Hood – what are the odds those two facts are connected, huh? The team will then relocate to Gotham, with Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) partnering up with his old friend Barbara Gordon (Savannah Welch), who’s now police commissioner. This promo also offers us glimpses of Scarecrow (Vincent Kartheiser) and the latest sidekick to Bruce Wayne (Iain Glen) – the third Robin, Tim Drake (Jay Lycurgo).

Away from the Bat-side of things, the rest of the Titans – namely, Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Raven (Teagan Croft), Superboy (Joshua Orpin), Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Dove (Minka Kelly) – are showcased doing what they do best. Then there’s Starfire (Anna Diop), who seems to be having problems of her own, something no doubt the fault of her evil sister Blackfire (Damaris Lewis).

All in all, this promises to be the most thrilling season of Titans yet, as the show brings even more classic DC characters into its universe. Of course, this wouldn’t be Titans without some controversy, though, and fans are no doubt going to have some thoughts about the claims that Bruce is a “psychopath” at the top of this trailer. A broken Bruce seems ready to hand the mantle of Batman onto Dick – but will Nightwing accept it? Or will he help his mentor get his groove back?
