HBO Max has released the teaser trailer for the upcoming third season of DC’s Titans.
The newest season of HBO Max's hit TV series is set in Gotham City, where the young superheroes will reunite with old friends and fight against new villains. The series' first three episodes will be launched on the streaming platform on August 12.
The teaser opened when Jason Todd, played by Curran Walters, is seen inspecting criminal activity at an amusement park.
“This is Gotham. This city breeds a special class of criminals. People die here. People like us,” Dick Grayson narrates throughout the teaser.
It may have revealed the presence of The Joker—looming, hearing his distinct laugh in the background, and his familiar silhouette beating Jason Todd who will be returning as Red Hood using a crowbar.
