Back in June, we brought you the character breakdowns for Titans, and now it looks like we’ve got our lead. We have a big casting update on the series by Warner Bros TV. We finally have our Dick Grayson/ Robin! It was confirmed today by TV Line that Pirates of the Caribbean star Brenton Thwaites will by playing the role. Thwaites also appeared in 2012’s Blue Lagoon and Disney’s live-action Maleficent.
Titans will be streaming DC’s new online digital service and we’re expecting it to release some point next year. According to the official logline, Titans will follow Grayson as he emerges from the shadow’s of Batman to become the leader of a band of soon to be superheroes that he recruits from every corner of the DC Universe. The show will be executive produced by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Akiva Goldsman, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. “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,” 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.”
So far the cast included Tegan Croft as Raven and Anna Diop as Starfire. Earlier today, we know the studio has interest in Alan Ritchson as Hawk and Rebecca Rittenhouse as Dove in recurring guest roles. We have yet to hear who is being cast as Beast Boy, but we’ll keep you updated. Which Titan are you excited to see in the live-action show? Leave a message in the comments below.
