It seems Cadmus will not let Superboy’s (Joshua Orpin) escape go unnoticed.
Deadline reports Good Girls Revolt actor Genevieve Angelson will play Dr. Eve Watson in the second season of DC Universe’s Titans. The character works at Cadmus Labs, the clandestine research facility growing its own Superman. Well, at least until Superboy made his escape at the end of Titans‘ first season. The site describes Watson as a “research doctor with conflicted feelings about her recent work,” so it is possible her loyalty to Cadmus could shift once she meets Connor and the rest of the Titans.
The second season will feature a stronger “fathers and children” theme than the first with Rachel (Teagan Croft) facing off against Trigon (Seamus Dever), an aged Bruce Wayne (Iain Glen) reaching out to Dick (Brenton Thwaites), and Deathstroke (Esai Morales) hunting for his own children after they join up with the rest of the Titans.
It may leave you wondering who Superboy’s father will be. Back in the comics, Connor was the result of an experiment twisting Superman’s DNA with Lex Luthor. That sounds like the right way to go, even if it means casting another Lex in the shadow of Jon Cryer’s superb Mr. Luthor on Supergirl.
Titans returns September 6th on DC Universe.
