"Titans" Casting Updates



The new "Titans" live-action dramatic TV series, adapting DC Comics characters, will stream on DC's online digital service, showcasing 'Dick Grayson' aka 'Nightwing' (Brenton Thwaites), as he emerges from Batman’s shadow as 'Robin' to become the leader of a team of superheroes recruited from 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," said producers of the new series, that will also include Steve Ditko's 'Hawk and Dove'. 


"Brenton Thwaites has the emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of the former 'Batman' protege and 'Titans' future leader. 


"We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character."


"Titans" is scheduled to start shooting September 2017 in Atlanta, according to a recent casting call breakdown.

"Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle. SERIES LEAD

"'JAX', Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he's learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking. SERIES REGULAR"
