Not long after having received our first look at Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans, the actor released a second look as he gears up to start filming his first fight scene.
Thwaites had revealed his new look on Instagram.
“Here we go!!!” Thwaites wrote. “First fight scene with my R. Kicking ass in a downtown Gotham alleyway. #robinrevealed #titans.”
Take a look below:
Thwaites will play Dick Grayson, Batman’s sidekick who went on to lead the Titans and step out of his mentor’s shadow by becoming Nightwing.
“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,” DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns said. “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.”
Dick’s status as Robin rather than Nightwing raises a few questions about the series. It may be that Dick will be Robin in flashbacks or just early on in the season. The series may take inspiration from the early issues of New Teen Titans and have Dick as Robin for the first season.
The Robin costume has been designed by Laura Jean Shannon, whose has worked on Black Lightning and Iron Man.
Thwaites will be joined by Anna Diop (Starfire), Teagan Croft (Raven), and Ryan Potter (Beast Boy). Recurring guest stars are Alan Ritchson (Hawk), Minka Kelly (Dove), and Lindsey Gort (Amy Rohrbach).
Titans is developed by AkivaGoldsman, Greg Berlanti, Geof Johns, and Sarah Schechter.
Titans is expected to debut in 2018 on Warner Bros.’ new DC Comics streaming service.
