We have our first look at Brenton Thwaites as Batman’s sidekick, Robin, in Warner Bros’ 2018’s live-action streaming series Titans.
It’s great to see that Thwaites’ version of the Boy Wonder doesn’t take any inspiration from Burt Ward and Chris O’Donnell, who have both played prominent previous incarnations of Robin. It is also closer to the comics (green gloves, red costume and iconic R symbol on the chest) and, thankfully, there are no nipples to be found.
Robin’s costume was designed by renowned designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book.
At 28-years-old, Thwaites is probably a little too old to be playing Robin. However, the Titans TV series will follow his journey to becoming Nightwing.
