Lex Luthor is officially joining the fourth season of DC TV series Titans on HBO Max and he will be played by Sons of Anarchy star Titus Welliver.
Despite some fears in the wake of Batgirl‘s cancellation, Titans Season 4 is still going ahead at HBO Max. The series, following its own iteration of DC Comics’ Teen Titans, has seen Joshua Orpin take on the role of Superboy and will now welcome another iconic character with ties to Superman.
A first image has been unveiled of Titus Welliver as Titans‘ Lex Luthor, Superman’s arch-enemy who is now set to menace the young superhero team.
Titans‘ Lex Luthor Revealed
A new image from Titans Season 4 shows Anna Diop’s Starfire staring down Titus Welliver’s Lex Luthor.
The image was shared by official Titans social media pages in a post that seems to confirm the Titans will be travelling to Metropolis to face Luthor. The supervillain’s name has cropped up in Titans before – it was his DNA, combined with Superman’s, that was used to create Superboy.
