Accompanied by an official synopsis and release period, this breaking news related to the DC Universe’s streaming service gave fans two new looks at Robin (Brendon Thwaites) in Titans.
You can have a look at them below.
The character played by Thwaites, Dick Grayson is going to be the central point of Titans, and official images for the upcoming series present him in that light, with more of Robin officially unveiled than any other character from the show.
“DC Universe is so much more than a streaming service. It’s a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories, and experiences they have come to expect from DC,” said Jim Lee, chief creative officer, and publisher, DC Entertainment. “We are investing in and creating original, high-quality shows including the new Titans series, and curating the most beloved nostalgic content, while at the same time elevating the comic reading experience to new heights. Nothing this robust has ever been offered to fans before.”
Titans is based on the young heroes from the DC Universe as they mature and it is a grittier version of the iconic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a young girl possessed by a mysterious darkness, get tangled into a mess that might cause great suffering to Earth. They are joined by the short-tempered Starfire and adorable Beast Boy. Jointly, they emerge as a surrogate family and a team of superheroes.
Apart from the characters mentioned in the synopsis, there are other characters who have either been confirmed or speculated to feature in the series such as Hawk and Dove, Jason Todd/Red Hood, Donna Troy, and the Doom Patrol, who in this version comprise of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane.
However, it should be noted that the Elasti-Woman here is not related to the Elasti-Girl from The Incredibles. This is, if anything, an incredible coincidence.
Titans is the flagship series for DC Universe and is scheduled to be out on the streaming platform later in 2018. We will see Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, and the animated series’, Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn, arrive in 2019.
