A brand new concept design imagines Curran Walters’ Jason Todd taking on the role of Red Hood for the hit DC Universe series Titans.
In Titans, Curran Walters plays Jason Todd, a character whose fate can lead him to taking on the role of the Red Hood. The Red Hood has had several incarnation, including the Joker, but Jason Todd’s version of the character is the most popular. Curran Walters has so far only had the chance to play Jason Todd during his Robin days, becoming a bigger player in the show’s second season.
As Titans continues to grow and garner acclaim from fans and critics, one can’t help but wonder if Curran Walters’ Jason Todd is destined to die and be resurrected by the Lazarus Pit, leading the character to become Red Hood. It certainly would be an exciting development for Titans to have the Red Hood, but it’s a decision that would have significant ramification for the show. While there’s no signal that Titans will feature the character, a brand new piece of fan art imagines Curran Walters’ Jason Todd as the Red Hood. You can check it out below.
Right off the bat, Curran Walters looks absolutely menacing as the Red Hood, highlighting just how off the deep end his Jason Todd can go in Titans. And of course, Jason Todd is seen sporting a gun, one of the biggest things the character adopts with this persona. If you look closely, the actual Red Hood mask is behind Walters. It’s uncertain if the Titans creators want to take Walters’ Jason Todd down this route, though it’s certainly something fans would love to see unfold on the DC Universe streaming service.

They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business.
