In the spirit of the holidays, we have some exclusive Titans casting news for you to chew on! The show is currently casting a major character who will play a large role in two episodes before the finale of the first season, which is currently shooting the pilot in Toronto, Canada.
As you probably know by now, with previous casting breakdowns that friends like That Hashtag Show have revealed, these character names are 99% likely to be just code names. Check out the character breakdown below!
“[EVAN LOGUE]: Male, Late 30s-40s, Caucasian. Charismatic. A cult leader attempting to reunite his family. Central role for series finale. RECURRING GUEST STAR. Please submit star/cameo names. Casting early for wardrobe but the role works Ep. 111 (04/09-04/19) and Ep. 112 (04/19 – 05/01)”
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Trigon made his first appearance in The New Teen Titans #2 back in February 1981 that relaunched the beloved group of heroes. Should this be Trigon who Titans is casting, this will mark the live-action appearance of Raven’s father. Arella, Raven’s biological mother, was tricked as she fell in love with Trigon who revealed his true self the night Raven was conceived.
Trigon has appeared in animation several times, from the original Teen Titans animated series, Teen Titans Go, and recently Teen Titans: The Last Judas Contract. It would make a lot of sense for the series to be casting Trigon, especially if he aims to go after Raven, hence the “reuniting his family” part in the breakdown.
We also know the series is casting Arella, so perhaps Trigon’s arc in these episodes will be about getting the family back for his evil plans. If Trigon isn’t who they’re casting, “EVAN LOGUE” could potentially be Brother Blood, who is the leader of Church of Blood, a cult that is all about killing Trigon. Let us know in the comments below what you think of Trigon potentially coming to the highly anticipated DC series!
