Brenton Thwaites is the boy wonder. In a first-look photo, the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales star has donned the costume of Robin for the upcoming Warner Bros. Titans series.
The costume was designed by Laura Jean Shannon who has worked on designs for Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book and many other productions.
Since the series began to come together in it’s current incarnation, previously there was a version in the works for TNT that was passed on, Thwaites has just been mentioned as Dick Grayson and not as Robin or Nightwing, his two codenames in comics history. This image proves that at least for some unspecified time in the series he’ll be seen in his Robin outfit.
The series follows Grayson as he emerges from the shadows, after serving as Batman’s sidekick for years, and begins to bring together a team of powered youths for a brand new super team. Those other youths are Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly are also slated for recurring roles, with the possibility of becoming regulars & gaining a spinoff series, as Hawk and Dove respectively.
Titans is slated to arrive sometime in 2018 as one of the anchor series for Warner Bros. untitled streaming platform.
