Meet the latest addition to the Titans series.
A while back, it was announced that Anna Diop and Teagan Croft joined the cast of the upcoming Live Action Titans series as Starfire and Raven.
Brenton Thwaites who previously acted in Pirates Of The Carribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale, was recently announced to have joined the cast of Titans as Dick Grayson’s Robin. Dick Grayson who’s just one of the many Robins batman has had, is an orphaned Boy just like him who later grew up to become Nightwing in the DC comics. He’s also the leader of the Titans.
The series is said portray Grayson’s transition from Robin to the future Nightwing. According to Titans Executive producer Geoff Johns, “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 emotions depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protege and Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character.”
The actor playing beast Boy will soon be announced according to reports although it’s not entirely sure if we’ll be getting a different cyborg or the same one we’ll be seeing in the upcoming Justice League movie. I guess time will tell.
The Titans series is set to air in 2018 and could very much connect the Arrowverse and DCEU.
