Brenton Thwaites Cast as Lead in Titans Television Series

Deadline reports that Brenton Thwaites (Gods of Egypt, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) has been cast as the new Dick Grayson in the new live-action Titans series. Produced by Warner Bros. Titans will be released as part of DC’s own branded direct to digital consumer service. Thwaites will be portraying Grayson, who trained under Batman as Robin (and who eventually becomes the hero Nightwing in DC Comics) and will rise up to lead the Titans in the series.

Titans marks Thwaites’ first television credit in an American made series. According to executive producer Geoff Johns, Brenton was pegged for the role due to his “…emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protege and the Titans’ future leader.” Previous cast announcements include Anna Diop (24: Legacy, The Messengers) as Starfire and Teagan Croft (The Osiris Child) as Raven.

Titans is set for release in 2018 by Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros TV and will air on the DC-branded digital service. The service is also slated to air the third installment of the related and cult-favorite animated series, Young Justice, in the same year titled Young Justice: Outsiders.
