First Look At Brenton Thwaites as Robin in TITANS TV Series

The last time the Dark Knight’s famous sidekick Robin appeared in a live-action property was twenty years ago — Chris O’Donnell‘s Robin in Batman & Robin. Next year though, Robin is finally making his return to the non-animated world in the new Titans original series for DC’s upcoming streaming service. And now we have a better idea of what to expect from the Boy Wonder’s latest incarnation.

DC and Warner Bros. TV just released the first official image of Titans star Brenton Thwaites as Robin, and his costume is definitely closer to the comics than his previous incarnation on the big screen. No bat-nipples to be found.

It’s not a full-body image, but we can see Robin’s signature green gloves and red costume, with the iconic “R” on his left breast. Laura Jean Shannon designed the new Robin costume — she’s previously created costumes for Iron Man and the upcoming Black Lightning TV series.

This isn’t the same as seeing the suit in action, but it is nice to know that most of the classic design elements are intact. At 28 years old, Thwaites is a bit old to be playing Robin, but we suspect that the Titans TV series will follow a trajectory similar to the path Dick Grayson took in the comics. During the “Judas Contract” storyline, Grayson realized that he was ready to leave the Robin identity behind and become Nightwing. Even with the Nightwing DCEU movie in development, that still seems like it would be an important part of this series as well.

The Titans live-action series will debut next year on DC’s currently untitled streaming service. But now that the show is nearing production, we should soon see the other cast members in costume as well.

What do you think about the new Robin suit? Let us know in the comment section below!
