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.

Titans Filming Now Set For Toronto

It was earlier reported that Titans would begin shooting September 25 in Atlanta, Georgia… now, it seems there has been a change of plans.

Newer production listings still see Titans lensing on September 25, but the filming location is now Toronto, Canada.

With Black Lightning already scheduled to be shooting in Atlanta, and every other DC show filming in Vancouver, perhaps a different location is a good thing that will allow a new talent pool of actors to appear on the show.

Toronto is currently home to some genre shows including Freeform’s Shadowhunters so this should work out well, if Toronto is indeed the Titans’ destination.
