In case you didn’t hear about the huge, game-changing end credits scene from this week’s season finale of DC Universe‘s live-action Titans (‘Dick Grayson’), we’re going to throw a righteous spoiler warning your way and use the trailer below as a buffer…you’ve been warned!
So Titans fans who know you don’t turn off an episode until the next one starts or you’ve run out of episodes were treated to a major game-changing end credits scene that will definitely grab the attention of Young Justice fans.
Here’s what we get: a lab in Metropolis – or what used to be a lab, now a scene of utter destruction and chaos – with alarms at full blast and bodies everywhere. We’re introduced to a lone, naked survivor with a very familiar tattoo on his shoulder:
Yup, that’s right: Superboy has entered the game – and he’s not alone! Because where would a (Super)boy be without “man’s best friend”…Krypto?
So what does it all mean for Titans moving forward? While mum on specific details, series showrunner/executive producer Greg Walker did shine some light on how the final scene came about and what “take” on Superboy fans can expect:
● First thing viewers should know is that as huge a moment as that scene is for the series’ future, it wasn’t long in the planning:
“It wasn’t totally planned from day one — or maybe it was in [Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman’s] heads, but they didn’t tell me. It definitely wasn’t something that we thought of until the very end. I think we knew that would be a direction that would be exciting for the fans and a tease that would be interesting for us as well, and that was the best spot to put it in.”
● As for which “version” of Superboy viewers will get, that’s still being mapped out (“It’s still brewing”) – but there are some basics that Walker said they’re keeping in mind:
“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. 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.”
