We are getting our first look at Robin from the upcoming DC superheroes TV show Titans, and he looks good.

Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Gods of Egypt) will play the Dick Grayson version of Robin in the TV series, which is part of a slate of programming for a new DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service. It is set to launch in 2018.



Dick Grayson is the first character to dress as the Boy Wonder. Later, he will take on the superhero moniker Nightwing. Other characters who follow in Grayson's tights include Jason Todd and Tim Drake.

The Robin "super suit" was designed by costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man, and The Jungle Book.

Based on the Teen Titans storyline, Titans follows Dick Grayson as he gathers up and becomes leader to a group of young heroes, including Raven (Teagen Croft, The Osiris Child), a half-demon, and Starfire (Anna Diop, 24: Legacy), an alien. Akiva Goldsman (The Dark Tower) is writing the script as well as producing the project. Geoff Johns from DC and Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions are also listed as producers.
