The waves of updates around HBO Max's third season of Titans continued Friday night, and this might be one of our favorites. Earlier, film director Boris Mojsovski, Csc shared looks at Damaris Lewis, Connor Leslie, Brenton Thwaites, and others behind the scenes. Now, Lewis is back to tease something new for Blackfire when the series returns- a new addition to her repertoire that will only add to the season's action. Yup, a new fighting style…
"*CAPOEIRA* Wow. We did it. I'm so excited to share Blackfire's fighting style once this season airs. The Brazilian martial art, Capoeira. All I'll say now is thank you thank you thank you to [Xingu Del Rosario] for being the best Capoeira/ life teacher a girl could ask for. You've grounded me like none other. To my stunt double and big sis [Alyma Dorsey] thank you for holding this vision down since day one and [Larnell Stovall] for green lighting the plan and executing it in spectacular motion. Let's get ready to rumble," wrote Lewis in her post, accompanied with a video of her in full-on fight training mode:
For the third season, executive producer Greg Walker wants fans of Anna Diop's Starfire to know that they're be learning much more about the favorite this season. With Lewis' 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."
Walker also wants to dig into the backstory on how Leslie's Donna Troy returns from the land of the dearly departed 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 aspect of her story that they will "absolutely explore.
