TITANS Showrunner Teases That Dick's Transition To Nightwing Will Occur In Season 2

TITANS Showrunner Teases That Dick's Transition To Nightwing Will Occur In Season 2

Titans season 2 recently premiered, and it certainly raised a lot of interesting possibilities as the show looks to set the tone for an ambitious season 2 that includes Deathstroke, Bruce Wayne and more.

When Titans was first announced, many fans assumed that Brenton Thwaites' Dick Grayson would be giving up the mantle of Robin to become (the much cooler) Nightwing in season 1. That actually never came to pass, though the first season did end with Dick burning his original costume. 

As season 2 kicks off, Titans showrunner Greg Walker heavily implied in a new interview that Dick is going to adopt the Nightwing persona before the 13-episode sophomore season wraps. "It's in the shadows, so stay tuned if you really want Nightwing information this season, I think you'll be satisfied by the end of the year."

Touching more on the inevitable transition, Walker stated that the catalyst for Dick's change comes from his relationship with Iain Glenn's Bruce Wayne, who's seeking to mend fences."It could never be the Batman and Robin version anymore because Dick has grown past that and rebelled against it, but what could it be if it goes past that? You have to deal with forgiveness and moving on and kind of adult themes, so I was really excited about writing that."
