When Will the Titans Season 4 Trailer Release?

DC has already revealed Titans Season 4 will premiere in November, although an exact release date has yet to be announced. With the HBO Max original taking a significant presence at New York Comic-Con this weekend, that announcement ought to be just days away, along with the debut of the first full trailer.

That trailer will likely include the first in-action looks at Lex Luthor, Brother Blood, Mother Mayhem, and Jinx, on top of the returning team. Perhaps fans will also catch a look at Tim Drake finally suited up as Robin, especially after this clip appeared to tease his early training under Nightwing.

Along with all the Titans news a fan could hope for, the team may also finally open up about the crossover with Stargirl and possibly Doom Patrol. Although one can only wonder what Multiversal shenanigans will be needed for this to happen as "Crisis on Infinite Earths" already left the three DC series on separate Earths.

Titans Season 4 will premiere on HBO Max in November.
