A new rumor suggests that Lex Luthor’s father, Lionel Luthor, will appear in DC Universe’s second season of Titans.
The rumor comes from Lance Ausfresser and the Titans Facebook group.
In a list of all the characters who will appear in Titans Season 2, Lance notes at the bottom, “Lex Luthors father… yea that’s right…. this is the answer from my topic the other day, that nobody got right.”
Lance also reveals that Titans Season 2 will include:
- Dick Grayson as Nightwing
- Jason Todd
- Wonder Girl
- Beast Boy
- Bruce Wayne
- Dr. Light
- Jacob Finlay
- Mercy Graves
He also notes that there will also be a “few more surprises.”
A number of the listed characters shouldn’t come as a surprise. Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Wonder Girl, Beast Boy, Starfire, Raven, Hawk, and Dove were all major players in the first season. Trigon also debuted toward the end of the season and was seemingly revealed to be the big bad.
Titans Season 2 also provided a post-credit scene following the last episode which alluded to the arrival of Superboy and showcased a Kryptonian power dog that looked a whole lot like Krypto.
DC Universe has also announced that Deathstroke, Jericho, Ravager, and Bruce Wayne would also appear in the second season. Deathstroke will be played by Esai Morales, Jericho will be played by Chella Man, Game of Thrones veteran Iain Glen will play Bruce Wayne, and Chelsea T. Zhang will play Rose Wilson aka Ravager.
Not included on Ausfresser’s list is Artemis, who he previously revealed would be played by Stella Smith.
Lionel Luthor is most well-known from The CW’s Smallville show where actor John Glover portrayed Lex Luthor’s father. Although the character did recently appear in Supergirl portrayed by Ian Butcher. However, the character has a long history in the comics. He first appeared in Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #23 back in 1961.
It’s unclear what role Lionel Luthor will play in the series. It’s possible he could be involved in the Superboy story line. In the comics, Superboy is a clone of Superman combining Superman’s DNA with that of Lex Luthor. It’s possible Lionel Luthor might fill that role in Titans.
