Titans: HBO Max Teases Anna Diop/Starfire Season 3 Reveal

Okay, time to break a break from the behind-the-scenes production updates on the third season of HBO Max's Titans to conduct some serious business. Similar to how they rolled out Curran Walters' Jason Todd/Red Hood look, the streaming service series posted a teaser to help kick off the weekend for a major costume reveal for Anna Diop's Koriand'r aka Kory Anders aka Starfire on Monday, November 23.

Here's a look at the announcement from Saturday, and following that? A clue to the November 23 reveal…

But if you're looking for a sneak preview, the fine folks at Team LJ Supersuits have posted a "puzzle piece" teaser image of concept art by Gina DeDomenico from a design by LJ Shannon of what Starfire will be sporting this season (with a rumor that there could be more clues coming here):

The third season of HBO Max's Titans will see some serious changes for the series aside from Walters's turn as Jason "Red Hood" Todd, with the action shifting to Gotham and Dr. Jonathan Crane (and Scarecrow?) and Commissioner Barbara Gordon entering the scene. Of course, there's also that matter of a certain "dead" Titan making a return. Executive producer Greg Walker wants to dig into the backstory on how Donna Troy (Conor Leslie) returns this season, and what that means in regards to an afterlife and spiritual connections.

"It's true, but there are ways we can kinda skirt some of the normal life and death rules for those of us that are kinda more human bound. We've got some exciting opportunities and stories ahead for Donna Troy and Rachel, and the whole underworld we've made. We'll go into what it's like as a transition stage," teased Walker. As for how Donna could potentially return, Walker offered a response that fans on social media have been hinting about for months. "DC Comics loves the Lazarus Pit," Walker teased. "I have no comment about that." As for the impact her electrocution will have on her life moving forward, Walker says that and aspect of her story that they will "absolutely" explore.

Walker also wants fans of Starfire to know that they're be learning much more about the favorite this season. With Damaris Lewis's Blackfire being upped to a series regular, Walker says viewers will learn more about their home planet of Tamaran and their time there: "We're planning a big season for Kory this year. The arrival of her sister/nemesis Blackfire launches Kory down a path where she uncovers both secrets about her past and clues to her destiny… all of which will lead to her true calling as Starfire. Plus, we have a few other surprises in store for hardcore Starfire fans this season."
