Set photos of Phoenix in his Joker attire smoking cigarettes have already surfaced, but Phillips has a solid grasp on his own social media presence to help promote this highly-anticipated DC film that will be the first in numerous standalone stories separate from the ongoing DC Extended Universe films. For a film that many written off initially, fans are growing more excited to see how Phillips, Phoenix and the rest of the cast and crew tell this original story about the Clown Prince of Crime.

Now aware of Rachel's power, Dick and Kory unite to find her. Escaped from the convent that sought to imprison her, Rachel puts her trust in Gar who reveals his own transformative powers.

But what starts as a place of comfort for Rachel, soon turns dark under the scientific curiosity of The Doom Patrol's leader Dr. Niles Caulder, whose experiment into Rachel's powers threatens to set free a darkness, and reveal a new level of evil waiting to escape.

Titans 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.
