Titans showrunner Greg Walker says that Dick Grayson / Nightwing and Koriand’r / Starfire will get a big bang in the upcoming third season.
Greg Walker, DC showrunner Titans, teased that the dynamic between Dick Grayson / Nightwing and Koriand’r / Starfire will get complicated in season 3.
“I love the passion of the fans for that. It’s in the books, but there is also a real chemistry between them. They are the mom and dad of the team,” Walker told Central Illinois’ WMBD-TV. “There are many good reasons to want them to be together.”
The showrunner added that while the new season will focus on each of the characters, there will be more stories focusing on Kory and her past.
“I felt that while there is real promise in the Dick / Kory relationship, I want to explore more of Kory,” Walker said. “We analyze her past, why she is who she is and why she was sent.” However, Walker hinted that this context may cause some problems regarding Kory’s budding relationship with Dick.
“Some bombs, at least one, were dropped on Dick and Kory,” Walker said. “Anyone with a good eye can determine where we want to go with that.”
HBO Max also recently released new photos of Dick and Kory prior to season 3. The first image shows Kory in her new Starfire costume, which consists of a purple outfit with gold details. The picture also shows actress Anna Diop sporting a darker hairstyle like Kory. Meanwhile, a second photo shows actor Brenton Thwaites wearing his new black and blue Nightwing costume. That photo also shows Dick / Nightwing holding a pair of walking sticks.
Walker’s comments about Dick and Kory came a month later Titans writer Prathi Srinivasan described the couple as “the heart of the show.” Specifically, Srinivasan responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about “Dickkory” and explained, “S3 keeps the heartbeat strong.”
In addition to exploring Kory’s past, it was previously revealed that Season 3 will focus on the evolution of Red Hood, the introduction of the new Robin Tim Drake (Jay Lycurgo), and the retirement of Batman (Iain Glen).
Created by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti, Titans debuted in 2018 and the first two seasons are currently airing on HBO Max. Season 3 debuts on August 12.
