Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the Arrowverse crossover "Crisis on Infinite Earths", Titans universe was designated as Earth-9 in both the original and new multiverses.
- Casey Lee Williams, known for providing soundtrack vocals on shows such as RWBY and Red Vs Blue, received a credit for her work on the scores of several episodes throughout seasons 1 and 2.
- On August 22, 2020 DC Fandome hosted a BAWSE Females of Color Within the DC Universe Panel, which included Anna Diop and Damaris Lewis.
- Anna Diop references the backlash of her casting, which meant she had to rely on her faith, friends and family. She mentions that it’s great seeing that people from marginalized groups can relate to her.
- Damaris Lewis who plays Blackfire mentions that being different is her superpower because once she started believing in herself, she started to get booked more.
- It's also no secret that Blackfire has some issues with her family, which means a lot of time spent reflecting and going inside herself and asking questions like how did I get there?
