Titans star Curran Walters is down to star in a spin-off series focusing on his character Jason Todd as the Red Hood.
Curran Walters made hit debut as the Jason Todd version of Robin in the fifth episode of Titans season one and has since become one of the key players of the hit DC Universe series. Now, Walters is ready to see his Jason Todd transform into the Red Hood and potentially even spearhead a Titans spin-off series.
Earlier this month, Titans star Curran Walters was a guest on ComicBook.com’s Talking Shop series to talk about his work on the DC Comics drama. When Walters was asked if he’d like to see his character Jason Todd suit up as the Red Hood, the actor said the following:
“Yeah, I mean, that would be pretty cool. I mean, it all depends on what the team thinks and where the Titans writers decide to go so. It’d be cool if we even got to the storyline on Titans someday. We’ll definitely see.”
Later on in the interview, Walters admitted that he wasn’t a huge comic book reader prior to being cast in Titans but he did talk about a couple of classic Jason Todd momens that he’d love to see adapted in live-action, including the character’s death at the hands of Batman’s arch-nemesis, the Joker.
“Man, I think obviously, one of the most iconic things, it would be pretty cool to like have the Batmobile stealing of the tires. That’s a pretty memorable scene for me, for sure. So that would be fun. Obviously, the whole Joker thing would be a dream, ideal world. But, yeah, we’ll see. I’m so thrilled to get that first script of the season and see what happens.”
In July 2019, Curran Walters shared an image of Red Hood on his personal Twitter page, teasing his character’s transformation into the Red Hood. While this never happened in the second season of Titans, Jason Todd was last seen speeding off on his motorcycle after paying his respects to the fallen Donna Troy, suggesting that he has cut ties with the rest of the titular team and abandoned the Robin mantle. If that’s indeed what happened, Jason could soon become the Red Hood.
Curran Walters was last seen as Jason Todd in Titans season two. Here’s the official synopsis for the second season of the series:
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.
