There has been some speculation amongst fans about when Blackfire will appear in the web television series ‘Titans’ as well as who is going to play her. Now if you are a DC Comics fan or, like me, used to religiously watch ‘Teen Titans’ which ran for 5 seasons, then you know who Blackfire is. If not, then I’ll tell you: Blackfire is the beautiful and incredibly deceptive older sister of Princess Koriand’r (Starfire) who happens to be a member of the Teen Titans.

While the Season 2 trailer shows many new additions to the cast from the list of iconic DC Universe characters, that is not why people are thinking that Starfire’s antithesis personified will appear in the upcoming season. Apparently, Canadian actress Oluniké Adeliyi shared a poster on her personal Instagram account which said, “Coming Soon!!! So excited and blessed to be part of this awesome show.” Although there has been no confirmation of what her role will be on the show, ‘Titans’ fans are hoping that they will be seeing Blackfire in the near future.
‘Titans’ separates itself from previous series because it takes a darker route in comparison to ‘Teen Titans’ and ‘Teen Titans Go‘ (2013) vibrant and childlike aesthetics. With that being said, Starfire’s background including her family still has yet to be explored extensively. Since Raven’s parentage and family issues were a huge part of Season 1, I think that introducing Blackfire would be a good step into seeing Starfire’s past specifically her relationship with her elder sister.
The trailer revealed that new episodes will also be welcoming Aqualad, Superboy, Krypto, Bruce Wayne, Ravager, Jericho, Deathstroke, and many more to the series. Established characters like Donna Troy and Jason Todd will be returning as the focus of more story lines for the upcoming season.
New episodes of ‘Titans’ air every Friday on DC Universe’s streaming service.
