Robin is ready to step out from under Batman’s wing in a big way.
The beloved DC Comics character, also known as Dick Grayson, will take center stage in the upcoming series Titans, where the iconic sidekick will become a leader in his own right. And we’ve got your first look at star Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) in the iconic suit, which was designed by renowned costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Iron Man, The Jungle Book and Black Lightning, among others.
Also starring Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagon Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, and Minka Kelly as Dove, Titans will follow a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe, with Dick Grayson emerging from the shadows to become their leader. At the time of his casting, DC’s Geoff Johns remarked, “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. 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 debut in 2018.
