Titans’ Brenton Thwaites Shares Another Robin Pic

Hot on the heels of the first reveal of the Robin costume earlier this week, actor Brenton Thwaites who is playing Robin a.k.a. Dick Grayson in the upcoming live-action Titans series shared another photo of him wearing the famous outfit on Instagram.

Titans is due in 2018 on the upcoming DC Comics streaming service.

“Here we go!!!
First fight scene with my R
Kicking ass in a downtown Gotham alleyway,” read Thwaites’ Instagram post.

Of course, the costume is pretty well covered underneath a coat, but it’s still nice to see more of the costume. (Fluffy top part clearly not part of the costume.) It’s also interesting to note that Thwaites mentioned “downtown Gotham” which we are assuming is a location in the first episode.

Will we see Robin only in flashbacks? Is he going to be Nightwing? So many questions still left to be answered as Titans filming goes on up in Toronto.

Hopefully we’ll have some more cast photos in the future.

Ryan Potter Is Titans’ Beast Boy – And He Is Green!

It was just a few days ago that, in a conversation, TitansTV’s Craig Byrne mentioned to a friend that Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) would be a great choice for Beast Boy…. well, guess what: It’s happening.

Deadline is reporting that Potter has landed that last big role in the DC streaming service Titans series… and revealing that his skin and hair will be green! Here’s how the TV version of the character is described:

As a child, Potter’s Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects.  Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.

Ryan Potter joins Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Teagan Croft in this group of Titans;  Lindsey Gort is Detective Amy Rohrbach, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will be appearing as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that the show will premiere in 2018.

Titans Gets Machinist Director, Production Schedule Revealed

Both IMDb and Toronto production charts are listing that Brad Anderson, the Machinist director who helmed The CW’s Frequency pilot last year, is set as the director of the upcoming Titans pilot for the still-untitled DC Comics streaming service.

Production charts also reveal that Titans is in the thick of pre-production with filming beginning November 14 and lasting through May 11. Hopefully that means we will find out who is playing Beast Boy sooner rather than later!

Titans, based on the DC Comics franchise of the same name, will star Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Lindsay Gort as Amy Rohrbach with appearances by Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that it will be premiering in 2018.

A Detective Friend Of Nightwing’s May Be Coming To Titans

When news came last night that Hawk and Dove were coming to this iteration of Titans, it wouldn’t have been news to fans of That Hashtag Show, who broke that information way back on August 31… including the notion that DC was interested in Alan Ritchson for the role.

There was one character they mentioned, however, who has not yet been an announced part of the show, but if their track record is any indication, we’ll have confirmation soon.

That role is Detective Amy Rohrbach, a character from Chuck Dixon’s acclaimed run of Nightwing comics and one of the few good cops in Bludhaven. Here’s the character breakdown courtesy of that site:

DET. AMY ROHRBACH: Supporting Female (25-35) [OPEN] She is the detective alongside Dick Grayson who knows more than she lets on. Pretty, has tattoos.

The extremely talented BossLogic has shared some artwork on Twitter, depicting Alan Ritchson in a costume as Hawk.

The costume on Titans probably won’t match this, but if we’re going for comics-accurate, you can’t do much better than this. Enjoy! You can find BossLogic’s Twitter feed here.
