HBO MAX: Finally we get some TITANS news…
Entertainment Weekly,: Showrunner Greg Walker confirmed that Titus Welliver will appear in several upcoming episodes as Superman’s longtime nemesis. Welliver is probably best known for his starring turn on Amazon’s Bosch and its new spinoff, Bosch: Legacy.
Greg Walker had this to say about Lex…
“He has a very sensitive, thoughtful approach to evil and power. You know what he’s done, what he’s capable of doing, except like many of those people, he’s personable. He doesn’t have a cat on his lap. Yeah. He’s curious, which I think is very interesting about his character. He wants to know about people and what makes them tick, and how they’re different from him. He sees the world through the lens both of his own power and his own inadequacy, and tries to compensate for both.”
Luthor is particularly threatening for Superboy, as he was created from a combination of Superman’s DNA and Luthor’s.
“We’re really going deeper in all these characters and shaking them up,” Walker says. “What shakes Conner up is an identity story. He’s explored his Superman self, but he has not really explored his Lex self. What does that mean when you do? What happens when you give that self the keys to the car? Does it start driving the wrong way at rush hour 100 miles an hour?”
And just an FYI. DC has its own Multiverse. And Titans doesn’t take place on the same earth as CW’s Supergirl or Superman & Lois. Jon Cryer was Lex Luthor on Supergirl, and Superman & Lois has not introduced the Lex character yet.
