TITANS: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Star To Play Dick Grayson/Robin In Upcoming DC TV Series

Big casting news for that upcoming Teen Titans TV series today as it's been revealed who exactly will be playing the Boy Wonder in Warner Bros.' upcoming live-action take on this beloved superhero team...

Casting news for Titans has been trickling in for a while now but we finally know who will be leading the team as Dick Grayson/Robin. That is Australian actor Brenton Thwaites and he was most recently seen in the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The news was confirmed by TV Line and his other acting credits include Disney's live-action Maleficent and 2012's Blue Lagoon.

Titans is set to stream exclusively on DC's new online digital service and will be released at some point next year. It's executive produced by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.

According to the official logline, Titans will follow Dick Grayson as he emerges from Batman’s shadow to become the leader of a fearless band of young, soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. "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," Johns said in a statement. "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."

The Titans cast currently includes Tegan Croft as Raven and Anna Diop as Starfire. More will no doubt be revealed soon but be sure to let us know your thoughts on Thwaites as Robin in the usual place.
