Titans star Ryan Potter revealed in a recent interview why Beast Boy isn’t green yet in the upcoming DC Universe original series.
Titans is set to premiere this week on DC Universe and when the show begins, Robin, Hawk, and Dove appear to be the only costumed heroes. Beast Boy has been seen in the footage released wearing a coat with the same color scheme as his original costume from the comics and sporting green hair. Potter explained in an interview with Pop Culturalist from New York Comic-Con 2018 why Beast Boy isn’t completely green yet:
“I think everyone’s first reaction was ‘Why isn’t he green?’ and there is a very good reason why he is not green. He is not Beast Boy yet to be 100 percent honest. He is still Garfield Logan and Garfield Logan knows how to turn into a tiger and he’s like, ‘Cool, I’m happy with that.’ He lives with Doom Patrol and that’s where he is at. He is not changed, he is not Beast Boy, he is first in a number of things because he lives with a very interesting family. He’s had a very interesting stepfather and an interesting childhood so he is not incompetent but he is not who we know him to be…he’ll get there.”
