Looks like I’m going to have to get caught up on that live action Titans TV show, because they have cast my favorite Robin! Tim Drake is going to become a reoccurring character in season 3, which will air one of these days on HBO Max! Tim will be played by Jay Lycurgo!
I don’t know anything about Lycurgo or his career, but I’m sure he’s a great choice! Apparently the Tim Drake from Titans is going to be a street kid instead of his comic book origins as a rich kid, which is also fine. Whatever they choose to do, I am fine with!
I watched the first season of Titans and enjoyed it, but never got around to season two…which seems strange. Between the growth of Dick Grayson from Robin to Nightwing, and the involvement of both Jason Todd and now Tim Drake, Titans seems to be the live action Robin TV show I’ve always wanted. Why the heck am I not watching?!
The third season of the TV show Titans is due out…I think any year now…on HBO Max! We’ve already seen the live action Red Hood costume, and now they’ve revealed the new, more comics-accurate Starfire costume!
Here’s actor Anna Diop in the flashy purple Starfire costume!
I think it looks neat! It also looks a little awkward, but then a proper comic book Starfire costume was probably always going to look awkward. At least she’s not being made to wear a purple metal bikini on national TV…or HBO Max.
I still need to watch the second season of Titans.
We live in a golden age of live action superhero costumes! Gone are the days of moody black leather. Now superheroes on both the big and small screens get to dress in comics-accurate attire! And it looks great!
Yesterday saw the first official images of the new Batwoman and Red Hood costumes from the second season of the Batwoman TV show and the third season of the Titans TV show respectively.
Here is Javicia Leslie in costume as Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman.
The Ryan Wilder character recently made her first appearance in the comics. Maybe she’ll become the new Batwoman in comics as well? Time will tell! I think she looks great!
Next up is actor Curran Walters as the Red Hood!
Walters played Jason Todd as Robin in the first two seasons of Titans. I haven’t seen the second season yet, so I don’t know what happened to him. But apparently it was enough for him to go full Red Hood for season 3! I need to start watching that show again. And I never did watch Batwoman to begin with.
To think I live in a day and age where there are so many superhero TV shows that I actively don’t watch some of them! I should be so lucky!
I’m not just all about the Marvel, people! I like DC stuff too! At least when they deliver good stuff! For example, I’m pretty excited by this trailer for the second season of Titans. I enjoyed the first season, especially all the awesome, live action Robin stuff. Season 2 seems to be taking us closer to Nightwing!
And, thankfully, we’ve got a Bruce Wayne for Dick Grayson to bounce off of. It was really frustrating when all of Dick Grayson’s seminal moments growing up were alone instead of with Bruce/Batman.
The new season starts on Sept. 6 — my birthday!
There’s also a new trailer for the Joker movie. I am less excited about this one.
As I’ve mentioned plenty of times before, I just don’t care about the Joker. And a movie about the Joker without Batman? I dunno…Granted, I’ll go see it opening day, because that’s the sort of person I am. But this trailer isn’t getting me too excited. Seems like just a crazy movie about a guy going crazy who happens to be the Joker.
But we’ll see! Maybe it’ll be really good. Joker arrives in theaters on Oct. 4.
I enjoyed the first season of Titans on the DC streaming service. It treated the characters well, had a good story and presented the best live action Robin we’ve ever had. That counts for a lot with me. Well season 2 is on the way!
That’s a pretty rushed trailer, but there’s still a lot to show off. More Robin! Jason Todd! A cooler looking Raven! Bruce freakin’ Wayne, finally! Maybe we’ll even get Nightwing.
It’s a good show. I’m excited for seasons 2!
