Since Jason Todd (played by Curran Walters) was introduced on DC Universe’s Titans, he has grown to become an essential member of Dick Grayson’s squad. That being said, there is plenty that can be done to ease his evolution and growth – and fans are very interested in seeing his path from Robin II to Red Hood.
The question is whether or not it happen on the series. Of course, Jason Todd was killed by the Joker in the Batman comic story called “A Death in The Family,” and he was revived only to become a vigilante darker than Batman. Titans is dark enough as it is, and Batman isn’t around all that much. Would they make Dick go through that instead?
While speaking with Comicbook.com, actor Curran Walters spoke about the potential of transforming his version of Jason Todd into the more mature Red Hood.

“Yeah, I mean, that would be pretty cool,” he said. “I mean, it all depends on what the team thinks and where the Titans writers decide to go so. It’d be cool if we even got to the storyline on Titans someday. We’ll definitely see.”
Titans has played around with the idea of killing Jason Todd before. In fact, they even created a poll on the site about Todd dying or not – something which had been the key factor in his comic death back in the 80s. Back then, fans called and voted via a 900 number.
Even though this version of Jason Todd is still around, there are more ways he could die and be brought back. And this time, he would blame Dick Grayson for his murder instead of Batman. Curran Walters continued his conversation and talked about some of the iconic scenes of Jason Todd.
“Man, I think obviously, one of the most iconic things, it would be pretty cool to like have the Batmobile stealing of the tires,” he said. “That’s a pretty memorable scene for me, for sure. So that would be fun. Obviously, the whole Joker thing would be a dream, ideal world. But, yeah, we’ll see. I’m so thrilled to get that first script of the season and see what happens.”
It would be interesting to see a flashback of Jason Todd in his childhood growing up and being raised by Bruce Wayne and seeing a young Robin. Perhaps it will be in the future season whenever the season can start being produced after COVID-19 delays.
What do you think? Is it time for Titans to introduce Red Hood or for Walters to branch off on his own? Is it perhaps also time to hint at the idea of introducing Tim Drake, who was the 3rd Robin? Comment below and make sure you stay with The Illuminerdi for more DC news and features.
