Titans, the latest DC Universe story, is set to start filming the same day coronavirus lockdowns lift, the show’s creator Akiva Goldsman assured recently.
The first original series to debut on DC’s streaming platform, Titans, had a surprisingly dull first season. However, season 2 was where the show found itself and its fans. But now, fans will have to wait longer than the fall of 2020 for Season 3, considering the coronavirus shutdown.
However, words of assurance from creator Akiva Goldsman should come as a relief to fans.
In an interview over a video call to Collider.com, Goldsman said that the writers’ room on the show is already functional. They will be ready to start filming as soon as the lockdown lifts.
While Goldsman remained mum on any teases for the season 3, he did note that the DC Comics series is planning to get back on set asap.
“[Producer] Greg Walker is running the writers room on season 3. Stories have been developed, but everything is a bit slowed down, obviously. Season 3 is planning to go in front of the cameras as soon as possible,” he told Collider.
Titans were already renewed for season 3 back in November of 2019, ahead of the season 2 finale. It follows former Batman side-kick Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) assembling a young crew of crime-fighters: demon-born Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), extraterrestrial Kory Anders (Anna Diop), shape-shifting Gar Logan (Ryan Potter), current Bat ward Jason Todd (Curran Walters).
In season 2, we saw Game of Thrones alum Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne and Esai Morales as DC’s deadliest assassin, Deathstroke.
We can see that the extra time may do well for the writers who have a complicated timeline and many characters to juggle. If all goes well, they could produce the most entertaining season of Titans yet.
