DC Comics’ Titans Series May Cast Legendary Batman Villain Ra’s Al Ghul

DC Comics’ Titans is undoubtedly one of the most-anticipated superhero television series that is planned to release by the end of 2018. If a new report is to believe, the ever-popular DC Comics team is planning to have the immortal Batman villain Ra’s Al Ghul on board.

Interestingly, the guys from That Hashtag Show reported a casting breakdown for the upcoming live-action series Titans in a YouTube video. The casting calls description seems like a fair summation of the legendary Batman villain. Here’s the full description below:

Male, 40s-50s, Middle Eastern, Latin, or East Indian. Seeking a young Richard Attenborough type. Fearless, manipulative, with unparalleled intelligence. Recurring guest star, seeking recognizable faces only.

Ra’s Al Ghul, the character created by writer Dennis O’Neil and artist Neil Adams, first appeared in Batman #232 in June 1971. Liam Neeson played the role of Ra’s in 2005’s Batman Begins, where he mentored Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne. The character has also appeared on The CW’s show Arrow and FOX’s Gotham.

Another important thing to note is that the character as mentioned in the description will be a guest star in the television show. This means that Ra’s Al Ghul will unlikely be one of the main villains of Titans.

Recently, That Hashtag Show also revealed another new character description which hinted at Solstice a.k.a. Kiran Singh joining the live-action streaming series. The casting breakdown read as-

“[MONICA SAINI]Female, early 20s-early 30s, East Indian.  Has the mentality of a survivor and the scars along with it. Unsettled and a little unusual. Orphan. Limited dialogue in her first appearance.  Must be familiar with Hindi.  POSSIBLY RECURRING GUEST STAR.”

The main characters featuring in DC Comics‘ Titans include Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Teagan Croft as Raven, Anna Diop as Starfire, Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, and Minka Kelly as Dove. Trigon and Wonder Girl are also rumored to be a part of the superhero television series which is produced by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman and Sarah Schechter.

The 13 episode long television series, Titans, will debut sometime in 2018 on DC Comics’ exclusive upcoming streaming service.
