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.

Brenton Thwaites Is Dick Grayson In Titans

Fans of Titans will now know what the show’s Dick looks like in live-action.

Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) has landed the role of Dick Grayson, no longer Robin, and it sounds like he’s not yet Nightwing. Here’s how Deadline describes the show’s take on the character:

Comic book fans know Dick Grayson as Batman’s famous sidekick, Robin. After Dick’s parents were murdered during their high-flying circus act, Bruce Wayne became Dick’s legal guardian and trained him to fight crime beside him. But after years as part of the Dynamic Duo, Dick struggled to find his place outside the Dark Knight’s shadow. Finally striking out as his own man, he emerges as a leader, mentor, and father figure to his new family, the Titans.

“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,” DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns said in a statement. “Brenton has the emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protege and the Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character.”

Titans will be hitting the DC digital streaming service in 2018.
