The presumed main roster for the upcoming Titans television series has been known for some time now, but a recent character breakdown for the digital-only show may have revealed more key players.
Reported by That Hashtag Show, the character descriptions below seem to point to some big additions from DC Comics history.
[DANIEL CROSS] Male, 17-19, Caucasian. Athletic, street smart, cocky, yet charming. His life is changed forever when he crosses a crime fighter and is given a new outlet for his rebellious ways. RECURRING GUEST STAR.
[JENNIFER ANDREWS] Female, 20s/30s, Caucasian. Small town, Midwestern girl gone to Hollywood, Jennifer is a star on the rise. She comes across a doe-eyed, All-American and naive in her approach to her art, and life. Jennifer emulates the classic girl-next-door actors from the 1940’s and 50’s. A bit Stepford-y in her thinking and appearance, Jennifer feels like a woman out of time. RECURRING GUEST STAR.
[CAROLINE] Female, 40s, Caucasian. Forever sleepless with worry, she’s the mother to a young, troubled teen. Seeking a recognizable cameo face or name. GUEST STAR.
[THE MESSENGER] Male, 50s-60s, Open ethnicity. Outwardly a warm and kind presence, he doesn’t seem the type to be powerful or malicious. But he has the ability to turn on a dime and be the most terrifying man you have ever met. Seeking offer only names/recognizable faces…RECURRING GUEST STAR.
Right now the speculation is that Daniel Cross could be Roy Harper (Arsenal) or Danny Chase (Phantasm). Roy is known for being a part of the team, while Danny's tenure with the Teen Titans was short lived. Jennifer Andrews may be Rita Farr, who's better known as Elasti-Girl. She actually became the adoptive mother of Beast Boy in the comics, so she definitely has a link to the team.
Caroline may be Angela Roth (Arella). Raven will be a big part of the series, so why not include her mother? Raven was conceived by Angela and Trigon, which could be weaved into the show. The Messenger may just be Brother Blood, who first appeared in Teen Titans #21. His connection to the Titans and Trigon could be enough for him to show up.
Titans is set to debut in 2018 on DC’s as-yet untitled digital service. Titans 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.
