I really enjoyed the first Season of Titans after its successful debut on the DC Universe Streaming service, it was a very grown up and gritty take on the traditional Teen Titans world. Now with Season 2 already in production, casting news has come out to reveal that both Superboy and Aquaman roles have been cast.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Drew Van Acker, who some may recognise from Pretty Little Liars, will play the role of Garth who is stepping out from the shadow of his mentor to become his own hero, something no doubt that Robin will certainly relate to.
We also now know that Joshua Orphin has been cast as Superboy, struggling to deal with his own place in the world and trying to piece together his own secret past. He was introduced in a post credit scene of Season 1’s finale. Conor Kent from the comics is a very interesting character, especially his strained relationship with Superman before he is accepted.
Both will join Esai Morales to play Deathstroke/Slade Wilson, Chella Man as his son Jericho and Chelsea T. Zhang as daughter Rose, and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne. Original cast mebers Brenton Thwaites, Teagan Croft, Anna Diop, Alan Ritchson, Minka Kelly, Seamus Dever, Bruno Bichir and Lindsey Gort all return from Season 1.
Titans is available on the DC Universe streaming service and on Netflix for those of us outside the US.
