The arrival of Titans on DC Universe means the long-awaited debut of Dick Grayson, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and more as a team in live-action. These are heroes with long histories on the pages of DC Comics and a couple of animated adaptations, but the live-action series is a big deal for fans. Fortunately, the stars bringing these heroes to life recently chatted with CinemaBlend on the Titans premiere red carpet and dropped some details about what to expect from their characters. Let’s start with Brenton Thwaites as Robin:
Everybody knows Robin as Batman’s first sidekick who fought by the Dark Knight’s side, with the first Robin being none other than Dick Grayson. In Titans, Robin will be a violent, skilled, F-bomb dropping vigilante who has left Batman behind to pursue his own path. The early footage indicates that Robin and Batman didn’t part well, and Brenton Thwaites talked how Dick and Bruce’s relationship is teased throughout the first season:
Batman won’t be without a Robin just because Dick left Gotham behind, and Dick will be replaced by none other than Jason Todd, and we’ve already seen that the two won’t get along right away. While Titans may not open with all the information about why Dick left Batman, Brenton Thwaites states that more info will be revealed throughout the season. Since the show has already been renewed for another season, perhaps we can count on the backstory extending into Season 2 as well!
Brenton Thwaites also commented on the infamous “Fuck Batman” line from the first trailer and its significance to Dick in Titans:
The Titans creative team already talked about the tone of the show and how it relates to the violence, and it seems that Dick’s story will be a significant part of that. Now, let’s move on to what Anna Diop had to say about Starfire!
