Spoiler Warning for Titans Season 2
And now we come to the only one of DC’s streaming shows to get a panel at the FanDome, Titans. The panel featured executive producer Greg Walker and series stars Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Conor Leslie, Curran Walters, Joshua Orpin, Damaris Lewis, Alan Ritchson, Minka Kelly.
Due to COVID-19 we once again have a panel on a project that has not actually started filming, and so the majority of the Titans panel was focused on watching clips of fan-picked best moments from the first two seasons and talking about what it was like to make those specific scenes, what they liked about those scenes, and so-on. It was a neat little clip show type panel, and it certainly made me interested in watching the show.
…yeah, never watched this one either I’m afraid, TV is a time commitment that movies aren’t, and I confess I’ve fallen behind in terms of planning to watch a lot of things but never getting around to any of them. So this might have landed a bit better had I indeed been a fan of the show and known more about these characters, but to be perfectly honest I’m not sure that it would have. Cause while I’ve certainly been considering giving Titans a chance (like many others the initial marketing definitely turned me off) this panel did a good job of giving me the final push to definitely giving it a chance.
But the clip show wasn’t the only thing this panel had. While we had no footage of it, we did get some information about the third season. It will be set either primarily or entirely in Gotham (a lot of Gotham in this FanDome) and will feature Barbara Gordon, now the new police commissioner, and the Scarecrow. In addition, Jason Todd, who did not die but did still leave the Titans at the end of the season, will be returning as the Red Hood at some point. Which… given the build of the actor in question admittedly sounds more adorable than anything, but we’ll have to wait and see how they execute it. And of course Starfire’s evil sister Blackfire will be arriving to stir up trouble as well.
So yeah, overall there wasn’t a whole lot to talk about since Titans didn’t have anything to show us regarding the third season, but at the same time, I would call it a good panel. It celebrated the previous seasons and the work of the cast and crew, got me at least interested in giving the show a try, and revealed some interesting details about the upcoming season. All in all a sparse little panel, but a good one nonetheless.
