A new character breakdown for DC’s Titans suggests the upcoming live-action series is searching for its Donna Troy.
Perhaps more widely known in her original identity as Wonder Girl, the DC Comics superhero was an early member of the Teen Titans, joining shortly after the team’s founding by sidekicks Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad.
The character breakdown, uncovered by That Hashtag Show, calls for a “confident and kick-ass” female in her 20s, “Caucasian or Latina or Middle Eastern, or ethnically ambiguous.” Identified as “Ruth Gibbs,” undoubtedly a place-holder, the role is pegged by the website as Donna Troy, in no small part because there’s a possibility the character could move from recurring guest star in Season 1 to series regular in Season 2.
Donna Troy has a convoluted history that comics writers have attempted time and again to reconcile, with only limited success. Introduced as merely a teenage version of Wonder Woman, she quickly (if erroneously) came to be depicted as a separate character, Diana’s adoptive younger sister Wonder Girl. She continued in that role for two decades, until changes in DC Comics continuity severed her ties to Wonder Woman and to the Amazons.
Since then, she’s been known as Darkstar, Troia and Donna Troy, and she even briefly assumed the mantle of Wonder Woman.
Set to debut early next year on Warner Bros.’ new DC Comics-branded digital platform, Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, with Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach.
