A wise man once said that in Gotham, you either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. And man, is that proving prescient for Titans.
It’s been revealed that in their third season, our show’s heroes will be making their way to Gotham where they’ll be facing one of their own—Jason Todd. Angry over the Titans’ actions (or perhaps, lack of actions) at the end of season two, Jason will return for revenge as none other than Red Hood. And we just got our first look at his new duds.
The Titans don’t know what they’re in for…but we do! While Red Hood’s backstory has obviously been changed from the one we’re most familiar with, we have little doubt that the gun-toting former Robin will be every bit as angry and hot for vengeance as he usually is. Played by Curran Walters—who has said many times how excited he was at the prospect of Jason becoming Red Hood—we anticipate plenty of showdowns between Red Hood and his fellow former Robin Nightwing.
This image couldn’t have arrived at a better time, as the character of Jason Todd is having something of a moment right now. Earlier this month, his dark origin was adapted into an innovative animated movie that gave viewers the chance to alter his fate. Red Hood has also proven to be an integral part of Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok’s acclaimed DC Black Label comic, Batman: Three Jokers, and will be one of four playable characters in Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s upcoming Gotham Knights game. However, his appearance on Titans is likely the one that has fans most excited—it’ll be his live-action debut.
Along with releasing the first look image, Warner Bros. Television also announced that Titans’ first two seasons will be making their way to HBO Max on November 1st, so if you’re a subscriber and you haven’t yet seen them, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on what’s arguably DC’s most action-packed TV series.
But for now, let us know what you think of the suit! Are you as excited as Walters for Red Hood to make his debut? What do you think will be the Titans’ reaction? And the one we’ve always wondered…how the heck does he breathe in that thing?!?
