DC's live-action Titans show can't get here fast enough.
We know Brenton Thwaites will play Dick Grayson and lead the team as Nightwing. It's confirmed that Anna Diop will play the out-of-this-world Tamaranian alien princess, Starfire. Remember that we reported Teagan Croft is going to play a young Raven, and Big Hero 6's Ryan Potter will be everyone's favorite animal changeling, Beast Boy.
The Hashtag Show broke some exciting new developments that give DC fans more to speculate about regarding who will be joining the roster.
Here are four character profiles that leave us to hypothesize about who's who.[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.
It's possible that Jennifer Andrews could be Beast Boy's adopted mother, Elasti-Girl. The description fits the origin story straight from the panels of My Greatest Adventure #80 starring the Doom Patrol. She falls in love with Mento and they adopt Beast Boy.
Daniel Cross could be none other than Roy Harper, aka Arsenal. The crimson archer is Green Arrow's protege, a bad kid turned good, a version of which has previously been seen in The CW's Arrow. Arsenal made his first appearance in The New Titans #99 in July of 1993. It's foreshadowed in Mark Waid and Alex Ross' Kingdom Come revolutionary mini-series that he would become Red Arrow. It wasn't until Brad Meltzer and Ed Benes recruited the character in their 2007 Justice League run that he made the change, though.
There are some rumblings that Caroline could be Raven's mother, Arella. So it makes sense that this middle-aged guest star might be the parental figure. The Messenger description only strengthens the argument and points toward Brother Blood. His first appearance was in a Teen Titans #21 storyline by exemplary comic book storytellers Marv Wolfman and George Perez.
It's only a matter of time before we find out if we're right on the money or caught in the Phantom Zone.
