Aqualad is Coming to DC's TITANS Season 2 and He Will Be Played By Drew Van Acker
The second season of DC Universe’s Titans will be introducing a new superhero and that hero is Aqualad! There have been rumors regarding the character’s possible involvement, but according to TV Insider, it’s now official and the character will be played by Drew Van Acker (Pretty Little Liars). The actor posted the following photo of himself on Instagram with the news of him joining Titans.
Described by DC Comics and Warner Bros. TV as "a founding member of the Titans and Aquaman's eager sidekick," this take on the character was also “born in Atlantis and is a member of the royal court who trained under Aquaman to be a protector of life in and out of the ocean.”
Garth a.k.a. Aqualad "would eventually step out from the shadow of his mentor to become his own hero as a Titan along with many other former sidekicks."
On top of Aqualad and the characters that have already been introduced in Season 1, the second season will also introduce Esai Morales as Deathstroke/Slade Wilson, Chella Man as his son Jericho, Chelsea T. Zhang as his daughter Rose a.k.a. Ravager, Joshua Orpin as Conor Kent a.k.a. Superboy, and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne.
