Superboy star Joshua Orpin seemingly debunks Lex Luthor rumors

Joshua Orpin, the actor who plays Superboy in Titans seems to debunk rumors of an appearance of Lex Luthor in Season 4.

With production on the fourth season of Titans going on, some fans are speculating about the future of the characters and the possibilities of the DC Universe based therein, expanding with certain iconic legacy characters. A recent rumor surfaced, claiming that actors Bruce Campbell and Cary Elwes would be eyeing to play Lex Luthor in the new season.

Well, Joshua Orpin, who plays Superboy in the series, seems to debunk at least some of that rumor about Lex Luthor. On his official Instagram story, he shared a screenshot of the rumor, captioning it, “This one is aging like milk.”

It’s worth noting that Joshua Orpin could potentially only debunk part of this rumor. It’s possible he’s only exposing the actors being watched, or maybe he’s exposing every Lex Luthor involvement in the upcoming fourth season of Titans. Anyway, Lex Luthor appearing in the series would make sense given that in the comics Superboy was initially depicted as a Kryptonian/human binary clone from the DNA of both the iconic villain and Superman.

Here’s the official synopsis for it Titans season three:

“Titans follows young heroes from across the DC universe as they mature and discover where they belong. In Season Three, circumstances draw our heroes to Gotham City, where they will reunite with old friends and face new threats.”
