Batman made a shocking appearance in the Titans season finale trailer but is that really The Dark Knight under that cape and cowl? Stop reading here if you want to avoid spoilers for episode ten of the series.
Yesterday, episode ten of Titans was released via the DC Universe streaming service and it finally namedropped Trigon. Not only did the iconic villain get mentioned, but he also straight-up entered our dimension with the help of Rachel (Teagan Croft), aka Raven, and her mother (Rachel Nichols). Earlier in the episode, fans even got a sneak peek at a much more monstrous form of Trigon thanks to a distorted hologram.
Trigon is now in our dimension, so to speak, in the form of actor Seamus Dever. At the end of the episode, Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Kory (Anna Diop), and Donna Troy (Conor Leslie) return to Rachel’s mother’s home and it is in a very strange state of existence, with only Dick being able to break through the barrier surrounding the property, and Trigon is very aware.
The trailer for the next episode of Titans gave fans their first look at the season finale titled Dick Grayson, and if you weren’t familiar with the latest episode, you’d think that this is just a one-off Batman episode but those who watched episode ten know the little hints that reveal the truth. Kory’s hair is very different, Jason Todd (Curran Walters) is in a wheelchair, Dick is dressed like he’s on vacation in Tahiti, and we even see Trigon talking to Dick about Batman embracing his dark side. This, plus the incredibly violent Batman shown in the footage, point at it all being a vision created by Trigon himself. So, who will be under that cape and cowl when Dick finally catches Batman?
Many have theorized that it could be Azrael, a DC character who first appeared in comics in 1992. The character took over the Batman mantle for a time while Bruce Wayne was recovering from his spinal injuries caused by Bane during the Knightfall story arc. There is another theory that makes a bit more sense with the whole Trigon vision angle and it’s that when Dick takes off that mask, he’ll be looking right back at himself.
The Titans have had to confront their demons over the course of the ten episodes released so far and this one particularly makes sense because Dick has shown that he fears becoming Batman, so much so that it has warped his sense of justice to be overtaken by vicious brutality, not unlike what Dick has done during most of the season and even what we saw Jason Todd do to those cops in his titular episode.
