And Titans has found its Robin!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the DC live-action series has cast Brenton Thwaites to play Dick Grayson.
Dick Grayson in the DC Comics was introduced after Bruce Wayne took him under his wing when his parents were murdered. He eventually becomes Robin and as he grows, takes on the mantle of Nightwing as an adult.
Thwaites joins the recently announced casting of Starfire and Raven, being played by Anna Diop and Tegan Croft respectively.
Titans will be the first series to make its debut on DC Comics’ own streaming service sometime in 2018. Among those developing the series are Akiva Goldsman, DC Entertainment President and CCO Geoff Johns, and the man responsible for launching the Arrowverse Greg Berlanti.
Thwaites’ previous credits include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Giver, and Maleficent.
