A new batch of images for the live-action Titans series has been released featuring Robin, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire.
Two of the images also offer a first look at Curran Walters as Jason Todd.
"What I really love about [Jason] as a character is the unbridled sense of self that he has - there’s a lack of... maybe self-awareness, but for sure self-consciousness in terms of how he comports himself and how he moves through the world," Titans showrunner Greg Walker said. "He’s completely seemingly unaffected by darkness - he kind of embraces it or walks right through it. He’s a breath of fresh air and that’s what I love about him, he’s got a punk rock, no-holds-barred attitude that’s massively unburdened. There’s a lot of energy that comes with that."
Geoff Johns also teased, "Jason Todd thinks being Robin is the coolest thing that could ever happen to somebody, and Dick’s experience is vastly different.”
Details for the start of the series include Dick Grayson is working as a detective in Detroit because he’s trying to distance himself from the life of violence he led while he was Batman’s sidekick, but then he meets Rachel, a troubled young girl and empath who just happens to be the daughter of a demon, and who asks Dick to help her understand her powers (via EW).
"She’s connected to him because they share the same feeling of abandonment,” Teagan Croft said of her character. “It’s more of a father-daughter relationship.”
