Rumor: Jason Todd May Appear on DC's Titans Live-Action Series

As production continues on Warner Bros.' Titans live-action series, more details are emerging about the episodes of its debut season. We already know that the fifth episode will star the Doom Patrol, and now a new rumor suggests the seventh episode may feature none other than Jason Todd, the second Robin and current Red Hood.

According to unconfirmed reports documented by the fan site TitansTV.net, the seventh episode will be titled "Jason Todd," suggesting the debut of Dick Grayson's successor as Batman's sidekick. In DC Comics lore, Grayson abandoned the mantle of Robin and later assumed the new identity of Nightwing. If Jason Todd does appear as Robin on Titans, that very well may open the door to an appearance by Batman, in some form.

CBR has reached out to Warner Bros. for comment, but has yet to receive a response.

The live-action Titans is set to launch later this year on Warner Bros.' new DC-branded streaming service, which will also be home to Young Justice: Outsiders, Warner Bros. Animation’s Harley Quinn and the recently announced Metropolis.

Titans is executive produced by genre veterans Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove and Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach.
