New Image of Robin from Titans Feels More Arrow Than Supergirl

First look at Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans

First look at Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans

We now have the first look of Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson and it looks incredible.

The new live-action DC superhero series comes from the team behind The CW's hit lineup of DC universe programming, including Arrow and The Flash.

The first image from the series shows Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) in Robin's suit, complete with his signature staff. Laura Jean Shannon designed the new Robin costume - she's previously created costumes for Iron Man and the upcoming Black Lightning TV series. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson (Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and others. Television, with Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schechter serving as executive producers.

The live action drama series is set to debut in 2018 on WB, as well as on DC Entertainment's branded direct-to-consumer digital service.

Now, he's moving on to other huge projects, in particular the TV series Titans, where he will be portraying the infamous Dick Grayson / Nightwing - a.k.a.

In the comics, Batman took a young Grayson under his wing after his parents were murdered.

The last time the Dark Knight's famous sidekick Robin appeared in a live-action property was twenty years ago - Chris O'Donnell's Robin in Batman & Robin.

The general assumption so far is that Thwaites will be playing the role of Nightwing as the upcoming series features an adult version of the character. I'm intrigued to see where they're going tonally with this one, given that so much of existing Teen Titans fandom comes from the more comic animated shows.
