DC Universe's 'Titans' Season 2 has set up the perfect 'Red hood' spinoff by sending Jason Todd off on his own
While the show spent most of its first two seasons finding its feet, 'Titans' Season 2 pretty much settled the series into a solid groove and Season 3 is already in the works
The DC Universe streaming service may not have a lot of shows on its catalog but they've definitely put in a lot of effort to make the ones they do have worth the watch. And at the top of that list is the hit superhero drama show 'Titans'.
While the show spent most of its first two seasons finding its feet, the finale for 'Titans' Season 2 pretty much settled the series into a solid groove and Season 3 is already in the works. However, recent reports suggest there may be a lot more 'Titans' content coming out in the future than you might expect.
While the service is planning on expanding the number of shows, they're reportedly still planning on keeping things limited. A DC Universe crew member told CBR, "They want to keep it around but they want to keep it small."
The same person also went on to add that the success and popularity of 'Titans' have led to it being considered the centerpiece of the streaming service's future, with potential spin-offs currently under consideration.
This creates the possibility for a number of fan-favorite characters like Raven (Tegan Croft) and Donna Troy / Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie) to get their own show but Season 2 may already have set up the perfect spinoff.
At the end of 'Titans' Season 2, Jason Todd (Curran Walters), the second Robin, quit from both the team and his relationship with Batman (Iain Glen) and set out on his own journey of self-discovery. This could be the perfect set up for a 'Red Hood' series starring the character.
Sure, this version of Jason hasn't died like his comic book counterpart but he did come pretty close a few times in Season 2, and maybe that's enough of a push to turn him into Red Hood without all the trauma of death and resurrection.
We have been hoping for a Red Hood series for a long time and seeing that happen, through whatever means, is pretty exciting.
Perhaps they could do something along the lines of the 'Red Hood and the Outlaws' comics, teaming him up with other heroes.
Roy Harper's existence in the Arrowverse has already been established, though we're guessing he may be too old to have the same dynamic he shares with Jason in the comics and Starfire (Anna Diop) isn't leaving 'Titans' any time soon.
Alternatively, the show could take inspiration from the second volume of 'Red Hood and the Outlaws' and team Jason up with live-action versions of Artemis and Bizarro. Now wouldn't that be something to watch?
'Titans' Season 3 was scheduled to premiere on the DC Universe in the Fall of 2020 but it may be delayed till 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
