In the last few weeks, we’ve been learning who will be playing the heroes of the upcoming Teen Titans series Titans which will debut on a DC branded streaming service next year. But every superhero story needs a villain or two to face off, and thanks to our friends at That Hashtag Show, we now know what evil force we’ll meet in Season 1.
That Hashtag Show revealed today that the show is currently casting the DC Comics character the Acolyte, a minor villain from the comic books, who will be going after one of our heroes. The site revealed the following casting breakdown for the role, but be aware of some potentially big spoilers:
“The Acolyte – Male. African-American 40-50. Confident. The villain of our story. He is after Rachel and her powers, trying to kidnap her after he murders her mother.”
But that’s not all, as That Hashtag Show also revealed that the show is looking to cast Rachel Roth a.k.a. Raven’s (Teagan Croft) adoptive mother. Here is her character breakdown:
“Angela – Female 40-50. Rachel’s (adoptive) mom. She gets killed in an attempt to kidnap Rachel.”
The first season, which will have 13 episodes, will start production in Toronto, Canada sometime this fall. We’ll hopefully soon learn who will be playing the Acolyte and Angela in the series. Let us know about the show bringing in The Acolyte in the comments below.
“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”
