We have out cast set for the upcoming Titans series and now we are getting our first looks at some of the actors in their costumes.
Brenton Thwaites who is set to play Dick Grayson aka Robin is shown above in his uniform.
Titans is scheduled to go 13-episodes in its first season and will premiere in 2018 as part of the launch line-up of DC Entertainment’s untitled streaming platform.
The cast of the upcoming TITANS series is rounding itself out. We now have a casting for Beast Boy.
Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) has been cast as the Green Hero opposite Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop and Teagan Croft as Garfield “Gar” Logan (aka Beast Boy). The new live-action series TITANS is from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman and Geoff Johns
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson (Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Diop), Raven (Croft) and others.
A bit of backstory on Beast Boy. As a child, Potter’s Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects. Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.
In addition to the core Titans quartet, the series also cast Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as recurring, playing superhero duo Hawk & Dove, with an option to become regulars in Season 2 and possibly headline a potential spinoff series down the road.
Looking probably a little more swarthy in this picture than he will as the other half of the Dynamic Duo, Brenton Thwaites has signed on to play Robin in the DC series, Titans, coming to the Warner Brothers new DC-branded streaming service, in 2018.
Thwaites may be recognized from his roles in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales or Gods Of Egypt, where he had smaller roles, but will definitely be taking the lead here, in his first U.S.-based series. The series is another Berlanti project with Sarah Schecter, this time written by Akiva Goldsman, and of course, with Geoff Johns involved in producing.
Of course, as previously posted, Thwaites’ Robin will be joined by Teagan Croft as Raven and Anna Diop as Starfire. This is starting to look better and better!
