A brand new piece of concept art from DC Universe’s Titans shows off Drew Van Acker’s Aqualad costume.
One of the highlights from the second season of Titans was Drew Van Acker’s performance as Aqualad. In the DC Universe series, Drew Van Acker’s character was an original member of the Titans team. Unfortunately, Drew Van Acker’s role in the Titans series was short-lived as he was killed by Deathstroke. While we likely won’t be seeing Aqualad in any future seasons of Titans, his memory is celebrated by a beautiful piece of concept art that shows off his suit from the DC series.
You’re probably quite familiar with costume designer Laura Jean Shannon and her team’s work as they are responsible for creating numerous costumes for DC productions, including Stargirl, Titans and Doom Patrol. Taking to Instagram, Laura Jean Shannon posted a brand new piece of concept art of Drew Van Acker in the Aqualad costume
This concept art closely matches the live-action version we saw Drew Van Acker rock in the DC series. One of the most interesting things about the Aqualad concept art is the fins that are present on Drew Van Acker’s feet which obviously help the Titans character swim faster. That precise attention to detail regarding the character’s legacy and traits is exactly what makes this concept art of Drew Van Acker so cool. While we won’t probably be seeing Drew Van Acker return to the role of Aqualad, one can hope that one of his fellow Atlantis residents joins the third season of Titans.

Here is the official synopsis for Titans season two:
In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. 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. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman.
