Superboy is officially coming to Titans!
DC Universe has confirmed that Joshua Orpin is joining the cast of the superhero drama as Conner Kent aka Superboy.
The news is unsurprising, especially when you consider the fact that Superboy's arrival was already teased at the close of Titans Season 1.
“Superboy, aka Conner Kent, is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past," reads the official character description.
"While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.”
Titans Season 1 featured the superhero team that was led by Batman’s former ally, Robin (Brenton Thwaites), and also includes Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft), and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).
Titans was the first series to bow on the young DC Universe streaming service and shares a universe with multiple other TV shows that will join the streamer down the line.
One of those series, Doom Patrol, launched earlier this month and garnered rock-solid reviews, boasting a 94 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Little else is known about Titans Season 2 at this stage, but we're sure more details will come out when as we gear closer to the expected late 2019 return.
Aussie actor, Orpin is well known in Australia for his role on The Blake Mysteries: Ghost Stories series. He can next be seen in Showcase’s upcoming Upright miniseries.
Titans Season 1 wrapped with Superboy escaping from a secret laboratory, while gearing up to rescue his dog, Krypto the Super-Dog.
Yeah, this is going to be so cool.
