A fan-favorite character may be joining DC Universe’s Titans sooner than many expected. According to the Titans Facebook Group, Red Hood will appear in Season 3.
First introduced in 2005’s Batman #635, Red Hood is an alias used by Jason Todd after he returned from the dead. The Joker killed the former Robin in Batman: A Death in the Family, only for him to be revived by Ra’s al Ghul via the Lazarus Pit. The pit caused Jason to take on a much more violent personality coming to blows with Batman and Nightwing on numerous occasions. Currently, Red Hood has become more of an antihero working alongside other heroes, even forming his own team, the Outlaws.
Jason’s transition from Robin to Red Hood has been teased previously in Titans. His confrontation with Deathstroke in Season 2 left him broken and confused, which is a perfect setup for his eventual transformation. Currently, it’s unknown how closely the show will follow the comics in regards to how he will become Red Hood. Titans has acknowledged the Joker exists, so it is possible they could adapt Death in the Family. Still, it’s also possible Jason could simply choose to move away from the Robin persona, similar to how Dick Grayson became Nightwing.
Many fans have criticized DC Universe’s Titans for having too large of a cast and not enough time to handle all of their development, so it will be interesting to see how they react to Red Hood in the series. Fans have long hoped to see the character in live-action, but some may feel it’s too early for Jason to become Red Hood.
