Earlier today the first photo of Brenton Thwaites As Robin was released for DC’s TITANS, a new DC superhero team-up series by Golden Globe nominated writer, Greg Berlanti. The super-hero series is set to premiere on Warner Bros. own streaming service next year.
Thwaites “Robin” costume was designed by Laura Jean Shannon, who also designed the Black Lightning suit for Berlanti’s other new superhero series, premiering on The CW in January. She has also worked on big-budget hits like Iron Man, The Jungle Book, and Scott Pilgrim, so we’re in for a something great.
Titans is set to premiere in 2018 as part of a new DC-based digital service from the WB.
The show follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. Thwaites stars as Dick Grayson who emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven, Hawk, and Dove. Anna Diop will play Starfire, Teagan Croft has been cast as Raven and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will play the superhero duo Hawk and Dove. Ryan Potter is also part of the team as Beast Boy.
The series also stars Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand’r/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6: The Series) as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson (Blood Drive) as Hank Hall/Hawk, Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Dawn Granger/Dove and Lindsey Gort (The Carrie Diaries) as Detective Amy Rohrbach.
