Titans Finale: SPOILER: Batgirl hints

SPOILER ALERT :rotating_light:

Okay, so we all caught the Barbara Gordon name drops right? If Jason can be in the series, am I alone to want Barbara? Let me know how you feel and if you want to add her to the team roster.

Yeah but she’s dead. Although that could easily have just been part of the alternate world

It said ‘missing’ so a girl can hope she’s still around. Plus that was in the alternate world…so…yeah.

All of it was definitely cuz of the alternate trigon reality. Would love to see Barbra though. But I have to admit, I hope they do oricale instead of batgirl

I want Batgirl/Barbara Gordon on the show so bad. Since YJ has said they’re doing Oracle, I would much rather we see Batgirl. Dick Grayson’s relationship with Barbara would be fun to explore on the show. To see Barbara interact with Hawk, Dove, Jason, and Donna would be great.

I vote we get Oracle with flashbacks of Batgirl.

Best of both worlds.

I don’t understand why they keep beating around the bush with characters THEY own, on their own streaming service. Easter eggs are awesome, but they shouldn’t be so much they are used to drive the story.

Only problem with your theory is the name drop was during a dream

If he dreamt it, Dick must know Babs as Batgirl.

The way they brought in Krypto is so natural. He’s not a Kryptonian space dog, he’s a test subject at Cadmus with Superman’s genetics. Dang, that justify Beppo more than Krypto. So freakin cool. Never thought I’d see him live action, but Titans worked it’s magic

I just don’t think it’s the right time for Oracle. Dick Grayson isn’t even Nightwing and Jason is a new Robin. Seems like Barbara should be Batgirl for a little longer.

I totally agree that Babs should be Batgirl at first.

When do we get another season?

Hawk and Dove are irrelevant characters. Gar, Star fire, Donna Troy and Jason Todd got screwed out of much needed screen time. Doom Patrol budgets should go toward making Titans a better quality show. More episodes and better effects. This was comparable to Iron Fist season 1. Take classic characters that are verry loved and bog the story down with characters nobody cares about. Cheap cheesy effects that are barely used at all. And a story line that goes nowhere.

Please stop asking for more characters. That is the one thing DC will actually listen to. I still don’t know who the Titans are. As far as I can tell it’s Hawk, Dove, Raven, Dick, Star fire, gar, Donna, Jason, super boy and a dog. What ever that’s about. In 10 hours of run time not a single villain. Maybe we will get one next season. If the writers don’t squander run time on character development that should have been finished this season. This just felt like a 10 hour trailer for…something? No villain. No team up. Who are the Titans? This was a very poorly made show indeed.

I would love to see Nightwing and Batgirl in a show together, but not necessarily in Titans. I say that because I would want Nightwing and Batgirl to have primary focus with their own story arcs that are unrelated to the Titans team and storyline. (However, I’m not opposed to seeing Robin transition to Nightwing in Titans if they go that route.)

Now that I think about it, Hawk and Dove might be better suited to a show with Nightwing and Batgirl rather than Titans. I wasn’t familiar with them before Titans, but I would enjoy seeing them in a traditional 24-episode series that has a team of adult characters and that can do deep-dives into character history and character development. I feel like Dove and Batgirl could be friends.

Nope. I’d want to see Batgirl and see how Donna is gonna day that he messed it up.

The producers said they can’t get the rights. :pensive: Scroll down to the bottom of this article: https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/12/21/titans-season-2-spoilers-conner-kent-nightwing-superboy-batman-cliffhanger

I feel Barbara Gordon/Batgirl should have her own series. She is a really cool superhero who can really hold her own and I know a standalone series based on her would do really well. But a live action series not animated.

I’m not sure where the idea that we haven’t had any villains is coming from. We had a crazy anti-cultist in Ep 1., Nuclear Family in the next few eps, then Dr. Adamson the Trigon cultist is introduced… then a digression for Melting Man/Zucco jr., then more of Adamson and his his merry band of Trigon cultists, and finally Trigon shows up in the season finale.

As far as Batgirl goes, comic book character licensing rights are really complicated, and they’re often exclusively licensed out to other groups or even subsidiaries with various terms and conditions; see, e.g., the Marvel nonsense with Spiderman and the X-Men with regard to the MCU. Just because the DCU streaming service has the rights to use some characters in their shows doesn’t mean they’ve gotten the rights to all the others. According to various articles like the one LongLiveTimDrake posted above, higher powers have said “no” to using Batgirl. I’m pleased we’ve gotten what we’ve gotten, and I’m really surpised that we are getting Cyborg in Doom Patrol and maybe later in Titans, given there is a Cyborg in the DCEU movies.
