Titans: Michael Mosley lands role of Doctor Light for season 2
Titans keeps adding to its roster for the upcoming second season, as the DC Universe original series has added Michael Mosley (Ozark) as Doctor Light. The news comes from ComicBook, though it’s still unclear how prominently the new character will factor into the plot of the new season.
The villainous Doctor Light first appeared back in Justice League of America #12 back in 1962, and was a bipartite character, meaning his physical being housed both a villain (Arthur Light), and a hero, (Jacob Tremblay). He’s been a major character over the years, serving as both a foil for the Justice League, as well as a member of the Suicide Squad.
Mosley will join the previously announced newcomers Joshua Orpin as Conner Kent/Superboy, Esai Morales as Deathstroke, Chella Man as Deathstroke’s son, Jericho Wilson, Chelsea T. Zhang as Deathstroke’s daughter, Rose Wilson (aka The Ravager), Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne, Natalie Gumede as Mercy Graves and Drew Van Acker as Aqualad.
Titans follows a group of young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. With other heroes joining them along the way, together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
The series main cast includes Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Dick Grayson/Robin, Teagan Croft (Home and Away) as Raven, Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand’r/Starfire, Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) & Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Hawk and Dove, Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, and Lindsey Gort as Police Detective Amy Rohrbach.
Titans comes from executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter all serve as producers, along with Weed Road Pictures, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
Season 2 of Titans will kick off on September 6 on DC Universe, though all the episodes will be available to stream on the upcoming HBO Max streaming platform as soon as it launches.
