First Look at Live Action Robin!

Check out this awesome bit of costuming! We got the great news a couple weeks ago that actor Brenton Thwaites would play Robin in the upcoming live action Teen Titans show, and now here’s proof!

That costume looks amazing! I got this pic from DC. The idea that Robin’s colorful costume can totally work in the dark world of Batman is a hill I’m willing to die on. Let’s hope the show actually gets made and the Robin character is awesome — unlike Robin in Teen Titans Go!

This is probably the only live action Robin I’m going to get for a very long time, so I’ve got my hopes up.



A Teen Titans TV Show? That Would Never Work!

As a personal rule, I don’t believe 95% of all rumored live action superhero shows or movies. I do not think Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark movie is ever going to happen. Let alone Lobo or the Metal Men. But I would have said the same thing back when the Rock was first rumored to be playing Black Adam several years ago – and now that’s a guarantee.

This fall, we’re going to get TV shows for Batman, Flash and Constantine. The Green Arrow show is probably my favorite drama on TV right now. We’re living in a world that Young Sean never thought possible.

Which brings us to today’s new rumor of a live action Teen Titans show, starring Dick Grayson as Nightwing. Apparnetly TNT is nearing a pilot consideration.

Crossover potential? 

I don’t know how I feel about this possibility.

On the one hand, I don’t believe it. I believe that TNT would love to have a show as successful as Arrow, and jumping on the DC superhero bandwagon is an easy way to do just that these days. I don’t doubt that someone at TNT would love to make this show.

I just…heck, I would love to make this show. I need to stop being a cynic. If this show became a reality, I would watch the Hell out of a live action Teen Titans show. I love Arrow, I put up with the whole season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I’m definitely going to watch Constantine, Gotham and The Flash, even though I hated the pilot for that last one (more on that in the future).

I love both Teen Titans cartoons. I mostly loved Young Justice, especially the first season. And I love the idea of a Dick Grayson TV show so much that I’ve been sitting on my own series pitch that I was going to make someday to the King of Hollywood.

I should tell you henchies about that pitch one of these days…

Something like this

There is so much drama, especially teen drama, that could be wrung out of a Teen Titans TV show. Comedy too. How many teen angst shows feature a romance between a hunky circus acrobat orphan and his fiery, orange-skinned alien power princess girlfriend?

Don’t think they’d take it that far? All of the new DC superhero shows are comics accurate, even The Flash! I would imagine this new Titans would be just as comics accurate.

There are probably a lot of people in the world who are getting sick of all the superhero movies and TV shows. I am not one of them. I may not have much faith in them getting made, but that could just be Young Sean talking. He lived in a very different world from our own.

He wouldn’t understand.


What do you henchies think of a Teen Titans live action show? Or a Nightwing series? What about that Supergirl TV show rumor that’s floating around? Sound off in the comments!
