Titans casts Joshua Orpin as Superboy


The team's getting bigger.

Warner Bros. Television has announced that it is has Joshua Orpin as Superboy in Titans second season.

Orpin will play Superboy as a series regular for the DC Universe original’s second season and is known for his role in the movie The Neon Spectrum.

Those who’ve watched Titans’ first season — and spoilers ahead of you haven’t — know that Superboy was teased during the post-credits roll of the show’s final episode. Superboy, or rather Subject 13 as he is known at Cadmus, was shown breaking free from the complex alongside a dog who’s likely Krypto, the Dog of Steel.

This iteration of Superboy, also known by his secret identities Kon-El and Connor Kent, is likely based off character created in 1993 by Karl Kessel and Tom Grummett. That Superboy began life as one of the four Superman stand-ins following the iconic character’s death at the hands of Doomsday. It was eventually revealed that Connor was created using DNA from both Superman and his arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor.

We’ll have more on Titans as it becomes available. The show airs first on DC Universe, though Australians now have access to it on Netflix.
