A new behind-the-scenes photo taken from the set of Titans season 3 gives fans their best look yet at Raven’s and Blackfire’s latest costumes.
A recent behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Titans season 3 has hit social media, giving fans a glimpse of Raven and Blackfire’s latest costumes. Based on the DC Comics superhero team Teen Titans, the first two seasons of Titans had originally aired on the now-defunct DC Universe streaming platform before making its way across to HBO Max. Applauded by fans for its dark and gritty take on a franchise more known for the lighter tone of its animated incarnations, as the show has developed it has gradually edged ever closer to its comic-book origins for its character’s costume designs.
Rachael Roth, a.k.a. Raven, daughter of the interdimensional demon Trigon, has been played by Australian actress Teagan Croft since the show’s debut in 2018. Meanwhile, the character of Blackfire, sister to Anna Diop’s Starfire, is played by Damaris Lewis who only briefly joined the cast in season 2. While Blackfire’s contentious relationship with her sister was only quickly hinted at throughout the previous season, the series finale strongly suggested that the Tamaranean villain would come to play a significant role throughout season 3.
Now thanks to a recent post from Twitter user Dewucme, a photo from the set of season 3 gives fans a glimpse of the characters’ looks in the show. While Damaris Lewis’ Blackfire seems to be fully decked out in the traditional Tamaranean armor first shared back in February, Teagan Croft’s Raven appears to have the full length cloak her comic character is best known for. Check out the original Tweet below:
While it is not completely clear from the photo whether Raven’s new cloak also has her trademark hood, it has been a feature in some of her earliest costumes on the show, so it is probably pretty likely. As for Blackfire, her armored look is certainly very close to what fans of both the comics and animated series would expect from a live-action version of the character. While reproducing a completely faithful live-action version of a comic book costume is always a difficult task, there’s no denying that the showrunners seem increasingly intent on bringing the characters as close as they can to their original looks.
Over the past few months, the show’s own Twitter account has also given fans an official look at both Starfire’s and Red Hood’s new costumes, both of which seem to be lifted almost straight from the pages of the source material. Given that Starfire’s costume design, in particular, drew some criticism throughout season one, evidence would suggest that the showrunners now seem intent on giving fans what they want. Titans season three has been confirmed for an August release on HBO Max.
