After having seen behind-the-scenes photos and videos, as well as being teased in the series, ‘Titans’ actor Brenton Thwaites confirms to comicbook.com that he will indeed be taking up the mantle of Dick Grayson’s alter-ego Nightwing toward the end of the series’ second season, which is currently streaming on the DC Universe app.
“It’s easier to move in, it’s more flexible, it’s more imposing, and I think that adds to the kind of the feeling that I have when I put it on, which transforms to my character, which is assuming his confidence, and leadership, and strengths,” Thwaites exclusively told the site. “It feels imposing, and that’s all I could ask for from a suit.”
“I find the Nightwing costume is easier to get into character, for sure,” continued Thwaites. “The Robin one, maybe because there was so many pieces, so many elements of it, you kind of get covered up too much emotionally. I don’t know if that’s … Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe we should try and analyze this, but the Nightwing costume, although it does cover me up, it feels quite revealing, and I think that’s a good thing for Dick Grayson in that point of the story is that he’s found who he is and he’s revealing himself to people.”
Now streaming on the DC Universe Direct-to-Consumer Service, ‘Titans’ Season 2 stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Kory Anders, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth, Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan, Curran Walters as Jason Todd and Conor Leslie as Donna Troy, with Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson, Chella Man as Jericho, Drew Van Acker as Aqualad, Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne and Esai Morales as Deathstroke. ‘Titans’ is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl).
