The first teaser trailer for the third season of Titans may have revealed the show’s version of The Joker.
In the second season of Titans, fans were introduced to the first live-action version of Jason Todd played by Curran Walters. In the comics, Jason Todd the Robin who eventually replaced Dick Grayson and was eventually killed by the Joker in the Death in the Family storyline before being resurrected and becoming the violent vigilante, Red Hood. It was expected that at some point the Titans series would follow this storyline in some way with Curran Walters potentially playing Red Hood. The first teaser trailer for the third season seemingly confirmed this a brief clip of Red Hood appearing in the trailer. This was not all the trailer hinted at.
In addition to showing Red Hood, the teaser also seems to show Jason Todd being beaten by someone with a crowbar. The build-up to the moment heavily suggests that the culprit is The Joker, although all we see of the figure is his back in a shot that is fairly zoomed out from the action. You can see the full trailer below:
