DC has finally found their Robin for the live-action ‘Titans‘ Series. Brenton Thwaites, known for the recent ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ films, is set to star as the boy wonder.
It seems like they won’t be playing into the Nightwing aspect of the character, as the THR report only mentions the character as Robin. This makes sense as WB. is working on a solo Nightwing film for the DCEU, and they probably don’t want them to be too similar.
Here’s what Geoff Johns had to say about the casting.
- “Dick Grayson is one of the most important and iconic heroes in the DC universe, and it wasn’t easy to find him but we have. Brenton has the emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protégé and the Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character.”
I think he’s a pretty good choice and depending on how they go about the character, I think he’ll make for a pretty good young version of the famous former-sidekick of Batman.
Titans is set to premiere on DC’s upcoming streaming service sometime next year.
Titans – is a live-action drama series that follows a group of young soon-to-be super heroes recruited from every corner of the DC universe. The drama revolves around Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and more.
