The fourth season of Titans will be presented tomorrow at Comic-Con in New York, and HBO Max has unveiled the first clip.
Impossible to deduce the context, but this scene portrays Nightwing ( Brenton Thwaites ) fighting a group of ninjas to protect Tim Drake ( Jay Lycurgo ). They are located inside a skyscraper, on a floor under renovation.
The new episodes will see our heroes return to San Francisco after a stop in Metropolis: perhaps this is where Lex Luthor , played by Titus Welliver , will appear . However, the Titans will end up “in the crosshairs of a supernatural sect with powers unlike anything they have faced before.” This is obviously the Church of Blood , headed by Brother Blood ( Joseph Morgan ) and Mother Mayhem ( Franka Potente ). Among the antagonists will also figure Jinx ( Lisa Ambalavanar ).
The American debut of the fourth season is expected in November on HBO Max , while in Italy we can imagine that it will arrive on Netflix , but only later. Meanwhile, you will find the clip below.

The synopsis of the series
Titans follows the stories of some young heroes of the DC Universe as they face an educational journey and find their place in the world, in this raw reinterpretation of the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special girl possessed by a strange darkness, get involved in a conspiracy that could bring hell to Earth. Along the way, they are joined by the fiery Starfire and the lovable Beast Boy, forming a familiar surrogate and team of heroes.
Brenton Thwaites plays Dick Grayson aka Robin , then Nightwing . There are also Starfire ( Anna Diop ), Raven ( Teagan Croft ), Hawk ( Alan Ritchson ), Dove ( Minka Kelly ) and Beast Boy ( Ryan Potter ). Lindsey Gort lends her face to detective Amy Rohrbach . Curran Walters plays Jason Todd . Conor Leslie is Donna Troy whileSeamus Dever is the Trigon demon.
In the second season were added Esai Morales ( Deathstroke ), Chella Man ( Joseph Wilson alias Jericho ), Chelsea Zhang ( Rose Wilson alias Ravager ), Iain Glen ( Bruce Wayne ), Joshua Orpin ( Superboy ), Natalie Gumede ( Mercy Graves ), Drew Van Acker ( Aqualad ), Genevieve Angelson ( Dr. Eve Watson ) and Damaris Lewis ( Blackfire ).
In season 3 we saw Savannah Welch ( Barbara Gordon ), Jay Lycurgo ( Tim Drake ) and Vincent Kartheiser ( Scarecrow ).
The fourth season will see the debut of Joseph Morgan in the role of Brother Blood , and Franka Potente in that of Mother Mayhem : the new episodes will then introduce the Church of Blood , a powerful religious sect that venerates Trigon (a demon already seen in the first season). Lisa Ambalavanar will play the supervillain Jinx , while Titus Welliver will play Lex Luthor .
Production is curated by Geoff Johns , Greg Berlanti and Akiva Goldsman , for the DC Universe platform . The latter wrote the script for the pilot, directed by Brad Anderson . I remind you that the Teen Titans were created by Bob Haney and Arnold Drake in 1963.
