Titans star says he believes Titans and Arrowverse crossover could happen

December 8th, 2018 by Marc Comments

You might recall that Arrowverse showrunner Marc Guggenheim and Arrow’s Deathstroke star Manu Bennett were asked a while ago if there was any chance of a crossover with the Titans characters and the world(s) of the Arrowverse (here) and both essentially said that there was talk of it but it wasn’t something they could talk about.

And now, another bone has been thrown in the fans’ direction that this may be something on the cards.

In a recent live stream, Hawk and Dove actors Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly, who confirmed they are back for season 2 (yay!), were asked if the worlds of Titans and the Arrowverse could crossover and Ritchson, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, said it was “very likely”.

Now, we know that, tonally, there is a massive difference between the shows’ worlds, but we also know that the upcoming Elseworlds crossover in the Arrowverse shows will feature The Flash from the 1990s and quite possibly Smallville, so we don’t think the crossover has to be that big a focus… it could simply be Bennett playing Deathstroke in Titans (he is, after all, a Teen Titans villain) or perhaps a nod that, at the very least, Titans in on one of the worlds connected to the Arrowverse.

We think, with Guggenheim being such a big part of ALL these shows, it’s not something that is even remotely impossible.

Now, if we could just get one of the Gotham villains in the Arrowverse, that might just put the universe to rights.

Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy.

Titans is now available exclusively on DC Universe.

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….
