‘Titans’ season three is bringing another antagonist from Gotham City in the form of Professor Jonathan Crane, better known as Scarecrow. ‘Mad Men’ actor Vincent Kartheiser has been tapped to portray the character for the HBO Max show based on the DC Comics series, according to Deadline.
Kartheiser is perhaps best known for his role as Pete Campbell on the hit series ‘Mad Men.’ He has also been seen in such films as ‘The Most Hated Woman in America,’ ‘My Friend Dahmer,’ and as an AI in the critically-acclaimed documentary ‘The Social Dilemma.’

Scarecrow is one of the Dark Knight’s most frequent adversaries. He was first developed by Batman co-creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger with their collaborator Jerry Robinson. He made his comic book debut in ‘World’s Finest.’ His reach would extend beyond Gotham City as he would join the Legion of Doom, Secret Society of Super Villains, and even the Sinestro Corps.
The Arkham Inmate was famously portrayed by Cillian Murphy as the main antagonist in ‘Batman Begins’ and made cameo appearances in the subsequent sequels. Henry Polic II voiced him in ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ with Jeffrey Combs taking over in ‘The New Batman Adventures.’ He was played by Charlie Tahan and David W. Thompson in the FOX television series ‘Gotham.’
Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Minka Kelly, and Alan Ritchson are returning in their respective roles as ‘Titan’ regulars Dick Grayson, Kory Anders, Rachel Roth, Gar Logan, Dawn Granger, and Hank Hall. Iain Glen will be reprising his role as Bruce Wayne with Curran Walters returning as Jason Todd, though now he will portray the Red Hood.
‘Titans’ is executive produced by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Greg Walker. It originally appeared on DC Universe before being moved to the HBO Max streaming service.
