Warning: The following post contains major spoilers for the first season of Titans!
Deathstroke is joining DC Universe’s Titans and a new fan theory attempts to explain his place in the series’ story.
Last year, DC Universe kicked off its original programming with a bang. The controversial live-action series Titans brought iconic characters like Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Raven (Teagan Croft), and Starfire (Anna Diop) to life in a very gritty new version of the DC world. Titans is set to return for a second season and it will bring a new iconic character to the DC Universe streaming service, Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke.
The ending of Titans season one finally saw the titular team of heroes confront Trigon, who has taken control of Dick Grayson. Although the season concluded before Trigon could be dealt with, a new villain has already been revealed for the second season of the series. Deathstroke’s role in the series still remains a mystery but a new fan theory on Reddit seems to possibly have an answer. Check out the intriguing fan theory, which includes Superboy and Lex Luthor, in the post below.
Before season two of the series premieres on the DC Universe streaming service, fans can return to the world of Titans in just a few weeks when Doom Patrol airs. The spin-off series will focus on the titular team of misfit metahumans introduced in episode four of Titans.
