DC Universe’s Titans TV show is ending on a high by introducing Batman as a villain. In the trailer for the gritty superhero drama’s finale episode, we get to see a murderous Dark Knight go up against the team after Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) calls him out for taking his crime-fighting too far. The World’s Greatest Detective has finally crossed the line and killed The Joker. Now, it’s up to the ragtag team of heroes to bring him to justice.
“He has to be stopped,” says Starfire.
“Let’s end this,” says Dick.
A bit like an Elseworlds story, similar to A Death in the Family, we see a wheelchair-bound Jason Todd (Curran Walters) visiting Dick and begs him to come back to Gotham City because Commissioner Gordon has died. As a result, the Caped Crusader has decided to finally kill Joker.
There’s a quick succession of shots showing Batman in action as he brutally kills police officers before escaping out of a window. This is a version of the character even darker than the one in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman.
If you’ve been waiting to see Batman and Robin beat the hell out of one another, you’re in luck. The master and the student go head-to-head on December 21st.
