Season 3 release date
What is the Titans season 3 release date in 2021? The HBO Max release date for the third instalment of this series was on 12th August 2021 in the United States. The series recently switched homes from Netflix to HBO Max, where you can now access all its three seasons.
The first three episodes are already available on the streaming service since HBO aired them on Titans release date. The others will be released weekly. The third season is projected to air until 21st October 2021.
Titans season 3 trailer
After the Titans season 3 trailer was released in July, many avid viewers stumbled upon some Easter eggs, which have raised many questions about the future of the show. The trailer contains several bombshells like the announcement of Jason Todd's death and Grayson being asked to take over as Batman.
The major tangent from the typical setting is that the Titans are now based in Gotham City, which is home to some of the main parts of the crime-fighting units.
In addition, it is expected that the third season will integrate more Batman mythology, a theory that has many fans excited. Some of the biggest questions that fans have include:
Starfire and Blackfire
The princesses of Tamaran have both received new super suits. Blackfire's new suit was revealed in February and has a heavy focus on royal purple given her powers and her queenly stature.
The season two finale ended with Blackfire landing on earth. The new season will focus on her hunting down her baby sister. Titans season 3 Starfire has ditched her fur coat in favour of a superhero suit.
Will Joker appear in season 3?
Is the Joker in Titans season 3? Batman is a massive part of the show, and many of his previous antagonists like Deathstroke have made appearances. It is therefore typical for speculations about whether his ultimate nemesis, Joker, will make an appearance.
The cast and character list for the new season has already been released, and there is still no word on who will play the Joker(if he indeed makes an appearance). However, the trailer heavily implies the presence of the Clown Prince of Crime, which has left many fans stumped.
In the trailer, we see Jason Todd break into an abandoned amusement park where he finds a corpse smiling ear to ear. The disturbing smile and the unmistakable cackle in the background are both chilling trademarks of Batman's nemesis.
Another theory that supports the speculations about whether the Joker will appear is Todd's descent to being the Red Hood. Jason's downfall has been a long time coming. In the comics, it is the Joker who kills him before he comes back as Red Hood. It is unclear whether the series will take this route.
Cast of Titans
The third season has all of the familiar faces you have met in the previous Titans episodes. However, the new instalment introduces a few never seen before characters. The cast of Titans includes the following characters:
