DC Universe's 'Titans' Season 3 might add another Robin to the mix to further expand the Bat-family
Besides Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters), Batman has had three other Robins in the mainstream DC Comics continuity
DC Universe's teen superhero show 'Titans' has featured two different Robins as part of the titular team in the two seasons it has completed. Now with Season 3 on the way, could another Robin be about to make his (or her) way to the small screen as well?
Besides Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters), Batman has had three other Robins in the mainstream DC Comics continuity: Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, and Damian Wayne. None of those characters have had a chance to appear in live-action, despite all three being highly popular members of the Bat-family.
Considering Jason Todd (the current Robin) left both the Titans team and Bruce Wayne (Iain Glen) to figure out his own path, perhaps it's time for one of these characters to finally get their chance to shine. If this does become a reality, our money's on Tim Drake being the character who joins the show, partly because we absolutely love the character but mostly because he is the one that would fit in best with the show's new balance of humor and grit that was embraced in the last season.
In any case, the Bat-family on 'Titans' is definitely going to be expanding its ranks with Barbara Gordon joining the show in Season 3. For those who don't know, Barbara is the daughter of Batman's staunch ally Commissioner James Gordon in the comics and best known as the young hero Batgirl. After the Joker paralyzed her from the waist down in Alan Moore's iconic story 'Batman: The Killing Joke', she became the wheelchair-bound Oracle, Batman's eyes and ears and the leader of the Birds of Prey, and it is this version of her that's expected to appear on 'Titans'.
The cast for 'Titans' Season 3 is expected to include Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson / Nightwing, Anna Diop as Kory Anders / Starfire, Ryan Potter as Gar Logan / Beast Boy, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall / Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger / Dove, Joshua Orpin as Conner Kent / Superboy, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson / Ravager, Conor Leslie as Donna Troy / Wonder Girl, Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne, Curran Walters as Jason Todd / Robin, Natalie Gumede as Mercy Graves, Damaris Lewis as Komand'r / Blackfire, and Chella Man as Jericho Wilson.
'Titans' Season 3 was expected to premiere in the Fall of 2020 but with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic halting production on all shows, the new season may not debut until much later.
