Titans, now an HBO Max original series, is gearing up to release Season 4. Thanks to New York Comic Con, we get the first teaser for Season 4, along with two clips of new villains. We also finally have a release date for Season 4. Tune into HBO Max on November 3rd to start streaming Season 4 Part 1 of Titans.
First, let’s take a look at the teaser trailer. This one is a bit underwhelming, since we only see what we assume to be Brother Blood’s hand rising. No stranger to villains, Joseph Morgan has been cast as Brother Blood, and I think this could be a really great casting. He previously portrayed one of the original vampires on The Vampire Diaries and eventually on their own spin-off series, The Originals. It’s unclear so far how Brother Blood will fit into this show, but as a recurring adversary to the Teen Titans, it appears to have been a good choice.
Next, let’s talk about Mother Mayhem. Mother Mayhem, part of the Church of Blood, is said to be responsible for bearing the next Brother Blood. In this scene, we can see just how powerful she is against the Titans. And with magic on her side, it makes battling Superboy much easier. I’m guessing based on the ending that Starfire gives them enough time to retreat, but Mother Mayhem and Brother Blood may be the toughest the Titans have ever faced.
Finally, we get to see another new villain emerging in this universe, Lex Luthor. Since we don’t know how all of this fits yet, it’s not clear if the entire season or just pieces will be spent in Metropolis. Check out the clip below to see the first look at Titus Welliver as Luthor. It looks like they kept the same theme that the older villains are older in age. Bruce Wayne aka Batman was also older in age than the rest of the cast, so I like that Lex Luthor is closer to Batman’s age than he is to Conner Kent. We haven’t seen Superman in this show, and I’m not sure if I want to or not. Superman is probably one of the hardest to cast, and I wouldn’t mind if he were always just mentioned rather than seen. Also, don’t forget that a part of Conner’s DNA is from Lex Luthor, so bringing the two of them together should help to evolve Superboy’s character even more.
DC’s Titans has surely had their ups and downs, but Season 3 took the time to reign in the multiple stories and reduce the large cast size. Season 4 has been highly anticipated by fans, and I’m glad that HBO Max is continuing the series. Season 4 Part 1 starts streaming on November 3rd, but stay tuned to see how many episodes will drop on that date.
