In a post-credits scene for Titans Season 1 finale, fans were hit with a noteworthy surprise. Both Superboy and Krypto the Superdog made their debut in the DC Universe and now, we’re getting an official, best take at the live-action look on the adored little pup.
On Twitter Friday, the official account for Titans shared the picture of the dog, his eyes gleaming brilliant red. Look at it below.
In the unexpected scene, audiences see a type of scientific lab completely devastated with different scientists and researchers lying dead on the floor. With alerts booming and smoke ascending starting from the ground, a naked man strolls through the lab, responsible for the destruction around him. He approaches a cage holding a dog. We see a tattoo on the man’s shoulder bearing the notable Superman logo revealing that this man is none other than Superboy, otherwise known as Conner Kent. He at that point tears the entryway of the dog’s enclosure, revealing Krypto with his shining red eyes before the screen goes dark.
It’s an astounding revelation, one that makes intriguing suggestions for Titans’ second season, something showrunner Greg Walker talked about amid an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s still brewing,” Walker said. “What I can say is that we still want to take the same dimensionalized and psychologically grounded approach that we do with the other characters and apply that same pressure to Conner Kent and see what shakes out when you put a character like that through that test. You know, questions of identity, questions of powers, questions of your place in the universe. These are all questions that are interesting for any kind of Superman character and are really interesting for Conner.”
Walker also clarified that the Superboy/Krypto ending had been in progress for some time – possibly even as early as the origination of the whole series.
“It wasn’t totally planned from day one — or maybe it was in [Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman’s] heads, but they didn’t tell me,” Walker said. “It definitely wasn’t’ something that we thought of until the very end. I think we knew that would be a direction that would be exciting for the fans and a tease that would be interesting for us all as well, and that was the best spot to put it in”
