In the comics, Dick Grayson ditched his identity as Batman’s sidekick Robin, and became Nightwing in 1984, so for a large number of people, that’s the only identity he’s ever had. So fans are curious when the live-action Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) on ‘Titans’ will undergo the same transformation. As it turns out, sooner rather than later.
Thwaites revealed to Red Carpet Report that he does get a new costume, but hasn’t had the opportunity to try it on.
“Yes, I have a new one. I haven’t tried it on yet, so I’m anticipating the day that I get to try that and see how it looks, see how it fits. See if I can move in it. Probably can. Yeah, I’m excited to try that on.”

He doesn’t say the name “Nightwing,” but what else could it be?
‘Titans’ was the premier original series from DC Universe, and it was renewed for a second season before the series became available. It was announced in April that the second season would be available sometime this autumn.
‘Titans’ received mostly positive reaction from viewers and critics, but access to it is limited as it is only available in the US on the DC Universe streaming platform, which not many people have. (Outside the US, it’s available on Netflix.)
Thwaites co-stars with Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Kory Anders/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy. Curran Walters who guest-starred as Jason Todd/Robin II in S1, has been bumped up to series regular for the sophomore installment. S1 also featured Seamus Dever as Rachel’s demonic father Trigon, Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger/Dove, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall/Hawk, and Conor Leslie as Donna Troy/Wonder Girl.
Season Two will introduce Esai Morales as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Chella Man as his son Joseph/Jericho and Chelsea T. Zhang as his daughter Rose/Ravager, plus Joshua Orpin as Superboy, and Iain Glenn as Bruce Wayne.
At least one storyline from S2 will focus on the strained relationship between Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson:
“After decades of fighting crime as Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne is just as driven to protect Gotham from evil as he was in his prime. Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.”
