Get ready for the new daily show

Titans season 3 casts its Barbara Gordon

January 20th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Looks like another cornerstone character from the Batman and DC universe has signed on to Titans Season 3 with ex-Batgirl Barbara Gordon joining the team.

Playing the role Transcendants star Savannah Welch (fun fact, she also played April O’Neill in 2011 Casey Jones short from Polaris Banks) has signed on to the hit DC show now taken over by HBO Max.

In the show, we’ll meet a Barbara well into her career as she will be Gotham City Police Commissioner and will be in a wheelchair having been paralyzed by the Joker years earlier. And, when Nightwing AKA Dick Grayson, played by Brenton Thwaites, returns to Gotham they “rekindle” their romance and start “a new crime fighting partnership”… that sounds like we’re going to be getting Oracle in Titans and I am all here for that!

Titans has had great episodes and, well, terrible ones too, so let’s hope HBO Max stepping in can up the overall quality because Nightwing and Oracle together is a recipe for some potentially great TV.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
