After a finale full of Dick Grayson’s nightmare-fueled battle against Batman, Titans ended their season with an after credits moment that’s got fans everywhere speculating what’s coming next year.
Now that Dick is possessed by Trigon’s dark spirit and Gar is trapped in the demon’s home, the fight for Rachel’s soul – and the fate of the planet itself – is in dire peril. Kory and Donna are still ready to rumble, and one hopes that Hank and Dawn are coming down with Jason in tow after their one-off episode, but the post-credits added yet another character to look forward to.
Connor Kent, AKA Superboy, was seen making his way out of a decrepit-looking lab full of dead scientists. Whether or not he is responsible for killing them is unclear, but either way he set out to find and release none other than Krypto the Super Dog. Might the pair of them be joining the Titans next season? Showrunner Greg Walker addressed the ways in which Connor’s arrival would change the dynamic of the way, yet also keep them the same in a recent EW interview.
What I can say is that we still want to take the same dimensionalized and psychologically grounded approach that we do with the other characters and apply that same pressure to Conner Kent and see what shakes out when you put a character like that through that test. You know, questions of identity, questions of powers, questions of your place in the universe. These are all questions that are interesting for any kind of Superman character, and are really interesting for Conner.
Given that many fans were concerned by the lack of a proper team up in Titans‘ first season, they may not enjoy hearing that Connor’s inclusion will still include a lot of isolated backstory work. In response to that, Walker merely stuck to his guns. “[It’s] more interesting watching them trying to form a team and being pulled apart than watching them actually be a team and fight together.”
Do you agree with that general sentiment, or do you think that the show would benefit from more interplay between the protagonists and less solo character studies? Let us know in the comments below, and check back with That Hashtag Show for more insider info on your favorite TV shows and movies!
