Warner and DC’s live-action Titans series has found its Beast Boy in Big Hero 6 star Ryan Potter.
Although he originally campaigned to be cast as Robin alongside Ben Affleck in the DCEU, Potter will probably be happy to show off his martial arts abilities as Beast Boy. He joins a long list of actors who have signed on for Titans, including Teagan Croft (who has been cast as Raven), Anna Diop (who will play Starfire), Alan Ritchson (as Hawk), Minka Kelly (who will play Dove), Lindsey Gort (as Amy Rohrbach) and, of course, Brenton Thwaites who was cast as Dick Grayson.
Along with the casting news, the studio also released a description of the character:
As a child, Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects. Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.
Titans will premiere on DC’s digital streaming service in 2018.
