While DC Universe’s ‘Titans‘ is showing how the team has been getting together, the other main focus of the first season has been to show the evolution of Brenton Thwaites’ Robin as he tries to learn his place in the world. Robin is always thought of as the sidekick for Batman, and just as we’ve seen in the comics, Dick Grayson went on his own way to become Nightwing. While Grayson is still wearing the mantle of Robin in this show, he has already moved past Batman who is darker in this series compared to what we usually have seen so far.
We’re getting closer to Grayson adopting his superhero persona with his Robin suit having been destroyed in the seventh episode combined with his conversation with Donna Troy in Episode Eight.
You can watch the behind-the-scenes featurette right here which features Thwaites, Greg Walker, and Geoff Johns talking about how this hero is coming into his own!
Are you glad that they didn’t make Dick Grayson into Nightwing right as ‘Titans’ kicked off on DC Universe? Do you feel that we’ll see the new superhero persona fully emerge in an upcoming episode?
