DC and Warner Bros. held some sort of press conference on their DC Universe streaming service this morning, and I was not invited. I’m never invited to any of these things. I don’t mind, though, because I’m nobody special.
You can read all of the details here. Basically, it’s gonna be a streaming service with some new DC shows, like Titans and a Harley Quinn cartoon, which should be awesome. I’ll find ways to watch all of it. Plus the service will have all the classic DC cartoons and movies.
What I really wanted to draw everyone’s attention to was the awesome Robin shots that came along with the press conference. Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson looks hella damn cool!
That is a gorram viable live action Robin costume and you all know it! So don’t let Hollywood feed you any nonsense that Robin can’t work in a live action, serious Batman movie. This costume proves it, and I’m sure the show will too.
Robin is awesome, end of story.
I’ve lost track of a lot of superhero casting news in the past couple years, because there are just so many new shows and movies. But you best believe my ears are going to perk up when I hear that a live action Robin is going to be somewhere!
Actor Brenton Thwaites has been cast as Dick Grayson for the upcoming live action Teen Titans show, and he will indeed be Robin instead of Nightwing!
I haven’t really given this show much thought, to be honest. I have no idea what to expect. But if Robin is going to be the star, with the show built around him coming out of Batman’s shadow, then I’m definitely on board! Let’s hope they can pull it off! Robin needs some quality live action adaptation!
