DC Universe has released character videos for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft), and we’re happy to see that if the early episodes are a bit on the overly dark side, there seems to be some levity to come. The Beast Boy video, in particular, is a lot of fun.
Titans is coming our way October 12, exclusively on the DC Universe subscription service.
In honor of Batman Day, DC Universe’s “DC Daily” show has released a special Titans preview clip on today’s installment — a clip featuring Robins Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) in action… and/or comparing notes on an elevator.
Best Robin Tim Drake sat this one out.
Dick Grayson is, of course, a part of Titans from the very first episode which will be released October 12 on the DC Universe app. We’ll be seeing Jason Todd later on in the first season, with there even being an episode called “Jason Todd!”
Details on how and where you can subscribe to DC Universe can be found here. You can see the new clip below!
Some official preview images have been released to promote the first two episodes of Titans on DC Universe!
Titans premieres Friday, October 12 and the new photos — from episodes titled “Titans” and “Hawk and Dove” — feature several key figures, including Robin/Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Raven/Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft), Starfire/Koriand’r (Anna Diop). Hawk/Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson), and Dove/Dawn Grainger (Minka Kelly!)
There’s some superhero action within as well as some quiet moments.
Titans is part of the DC Universe subscription service that has a whole lot of original material. You can subscribe to DC Universe at DCUniverse.com. (TitansTV is not affiliated with DC Universe)
The new cast gallery photos feature Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, and Anna Diop as Starfire. The photos were seen during the stream but here they are without tags! Enjoy!

As Titans wrapped its first season, Brenton Thwaites gifted the other members of his show’s cast and crew with a “Dick Pick” – a guitar pick from himself, the actor playing Dick Grayson. The classic Titans logo from the Marv Wolfman and George Perez era is printed on it.
He also included a note with the show’s logo and a poem.
The DC Universe made some big announcements yesterday, many of which you can find on our general TV news site, KSiteTV, but even more than that… they released some new photos of Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans, including a full body shot!
Thwaites himself posted a photo on Instagram which you can find in the gallery below. In the photo, he mentioned “that’s a wrap on Titans” for Season 1… if that is a photo from the end of the season, does that imply Dick Grayson is Robin for the entire year?
Also announced is that Titans is due to come our way later this year! Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing will be headed our way in 2019.
Our apologies for not posting about this on TitansTV yesterday; there were some personal issues that kept webmaster Craig away from the computer for most of the afternoon. As always, though, the first place you can look for Titans information is our @TitansTV Twitter account.
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.
Warner Bros. has released their first official photo of Brenton Thwaites in costume as Dick Grayson (Robin) from their upcoming DC Comics-based series Titans which is coming from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The Robin super suit was designed by renowned costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book, among others.
Titans is set to debut in 2018 on the DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service, operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks.

From executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, Titans is an all-new live-action drama series that follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
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.
