‘Titans’ Finds Its Beast Boy in Ryan Potter

The cast for Titans, the Greg Berlanti-led DC digital service series, continues to take shape with the casting announcement for fan-favorite, Beast Boy (Garfield ‘Gar’ Logan). Potter, best known for his role as Hiro in the Disney animated film Big Hero 6, joins previously cast Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Tegan Croft.

The show, written by Akiva Goldstein, focuses on a younger generation of superheroes (okay, let’s be honest, it’s pulling from classic Teen Titans), with Thwaites’ Dick Grayson aka Robin/Nightwing emerging as their leader. This isn’t the first casting surprise for this series as far as diversity goes. Some fans were pleasantly surprised to see Koriand’r aka Starfire go to Diop over a white actress. Potter himself has been lobbying for another famous Robin role for some time and has even filmed himself in a demo reel showing off his stunt work as Tim Drake. That he finally made it as a DC hero wasn’t lost on him.

Rounding out the four core Titans are Alan Ritchson (Blood Drive) and Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as heroes Hawk and Dove. The two will have recurring roles with the potential to become regulars if Titans is picked up for a second season. We have yet to receive confirmation on any other potential Titans as of yet, though here at the Fandomentals we’re crossing our fingers for Donna Troy.

No word on which DC series Berlanti TV might pick up next.
