This week has been full of DC news. Only yesterday we learned that Joshua Orpin was cast as Superboy in TITANS Season 2. Today new casting details, per Geeks WorldWide, have lead to speculation that another character from Young Justice will be joining the series. Rumors are that the casting details are for none other than Guardian.
“As indomitable as he is mysterious. Haunted by his past, Jack is a non-attention-seeking vigilante who’s dedicated his life to helping those in need. Underneath this ultimate gentleman is the ultimate fighting machine. But his success has come at a price, turning him into a sublime recluse. As Jack stops at nothing to ensure others have a better life than his own, the question looms large about whether he’ll ever be able to let down his walls.”
While the actual name of Guardian is Jim Harper, ‘Jack’ wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for a change, and often times these names are just place holders. For instance, Dick Grayson’s casting breakdown ‘codename’ was John Crossland. This seems like the safest bet as this season of TITANS seems to be taking much of its inspiration from Young Justice. Guardian has had two iterations in recent years; he had a part in the first two seasons of Young Justice and has been a character on CW’s Supergirl for the past few years.
Guardian joins other notable additions of Jericho and Deathstroke, along with Ravager. Furthermore, with the news of Superboy from yesterday, the upcoming season of TITANS has a lot of potential.
TITANS Season 2 is rumored to begin production soon with a speculated late 2019 release date.
