Brenton Thwaites is Dick Grayson for Titans TV, But is He Robin or Nightwing?
DC Entertainment has announced the casting of Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson for the upcoming Titans TV series.
The actor has appeared in films like Maleficent and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
For the series however, he will be playing the soul of the Titans and the Teen Titans, Dick Grayson.
The bigger question from the casting of Brenton Thwaites is which hero his Grayson would be appearing in. Some say that he could be playing a slightly grown up Robin while there are others who think that he would be Nightwing.
Geoff Johns has this to say about the casting of Thwaites:
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 protégé and the Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character.”
When asked whether this Grayson would be Robin or Nightwing, Johnswas mum. He did however tease that when Titans season 1 begins, Grayson is done with Batman. He still isnt sure whether he should go by Robin or make a new persona.
