‘Titans’ season 2 preview: Deathstroke, Project Cadmus, Connor Kent learning his powers, a Bruce Wayne curveball

Following a season 2 premiere that wrapped up the Rachel/Trigon storyline, the season skipped ahead three months, introducing a new direction for the show where Dick Grayson is training his young recruits, Donna and Kory are teaming up while Hank and Dawn are trying out the quiet life on a Wyoming ranch.

“We launched into a new chapter of Titans 2.0,” says Greg Walker, showrunner of the show. “There is a mythology that comes back to haunt them like a cancer,” he added, referring to Doctor Light and it turns out the gifted young woman Dick saved just so happens to be Slade Wilson’s daughter.

“In the previous incarnation of Titans, certain things did not get resolved, and they find their way to the surface again now that the Titans are reformed; Yesterday’s problems become today’s problems.”

Walker said Season Two differs from the inaugural one by centering the action in San Francisco, and at Titans Tower.

“[Last season] they ended up traveling from problem to problem, but we’re not a road show anymore.”

Walker adds that a home base gives the show more of a dramatic focus because it’s harder to run from issues when you’re not on the road.

Looking ahead, in the season’s third episode, Donna, Hank, and Dawn return to the Tower – and begin flashing back to the past. The showrunner shares there will also be two flashback episodes to explore the relationships of the first Titans team.
“It has been really fun write the evolving relationship between individual Titans, and the past, exploring what their relationships were like, why Dick and Dawn broke up, how did Hank and Dawn get back together, the emotional politics of Dick and Dawn over the years.”
Season 2 returns to classic Marv Wolfman and George Perez comic book storylines, as well as exploring Project Cadmus, and the personalities, and dimensions, of the group behind Connor Kent/Superboy’s creation.
Speaking of Kent (Joshua Orpin), when he arrives, it won’t be as a fully powered Superman clone, but instead he “has to figure out what his powers are before he can use them.”
There are also promises of more Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne coming: “We’re going to throw fans a huge curveball with Bruce, and you’ll see him appear in a way you’ve not seen him before.”
Of course, fans are thrilled to see Deathstroke (Esai Morales) and Walker says he has enjoyed examining the assassin’s world, and connections with his assistant Wintergreen, and children Rose, and Jericho and closed with a final tease for the remainder of the season relates to a certain caped dog.

“Krypto is the hardest working super-dog in the business.”
