Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow…
With so many of us hugely looking forward to next year’s live-action Teen Titans show – Titans – we’ve finally been given our first look at one of the show’s main heroes. And not just any hero, but the beloved Dick Grayson in his Robin garb.
Is it just us, or does this just look all kinds of awesome?
Pirates of the Caribbean’s Brenton Thwaites is the man tasked with playing Grayson in the series, and we’ll see the character progress from the Robin mantle to the moniker of Nightwing as the show progresses.
As for the suit shown, that was designed by the brilliant Laura Jean Shannon, who has previous for her work on the likes of Iron Man, The Jungle Book and the upcoming Black Lightning.
In Titans, Thwaites will be joined by Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as the Hawk and Dove duo, and Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach.
The early word on the show reads:
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Titans will premiere next year on Warner Brothers’ new on-demand streaming service.
