While DC Universe has been coy about episode previews for the second season of their flagship sequence Titans, a long-awaited and fan-favorite character is about to make his debut and so the streaming platform simply needed to give followers a style of what is to come back. The subsequent episode, referred to as “Conner,” will lastly see Superboy changing into a significant character on the upcoming sequence. And in the clip, we see the Kryptonian clone in motion as he demonstrates his powers together with tremendous power and tremendous pace. Watch it in the video participant above!
“Conner Kent and Krypto escape from Cadmus Labs. His search for the truth about his past leads him to Lionel Luthor and genetic scientist Dr. Eve Watson.”
It’s attainable that that is Lionel Luthor’s farm, and that is who Conner is defending from the troopers. Whether these armed troops work for Cadmus or the federal government or another person stays to be seen. Without point out of Lex Luthor, it is unclear if he’ll even play a job in the sequence or if they will substitute him in Conner’s origin together with his father Lionel.
In the comics, Conner is a clone of each Lex Luthor and Superman, and a few of producer Geoff John’s finest comics cope with Superboy grappling together with his lineage and the 2 influences of his father.
Titans star Brenton Thwaites teased how Superboy disrupts the sequence when he comes in on the halfway level of Season 2.
“There’s a part of Superboy that Dick sees in himself. Superboy is someone who is also struggling with identity and a search for friends and family,” Thwaites defined in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “He seems lost, he seems confused, and I think Dick [recognizes] he was just like that when he was a boy. Naturally, he wants to help him and do things for him that weren’t done for himself.”
The first season finale initially teased Conner’s debut, after which showrunner Greg Walker defined that he did not need to sensationalize the story and wished to maintain his origin in line with the established tone of Titans.
“What I can say is that we still want to take the same dimensionalized and psychologically grounded approach that we do with the other characters and apply that same pressure to Conner Kent and see what shakes out when you put a character like that through that test,” defined Walker. “You know, questions of identity, questions of powers, questions of your place in the universe. These are all questions that are interesting for any kind of Superman character, and are really interesting for Conner.”
New episodes of Titans debut Friday mornings on the DC Universe streaming service.
