2018 is right around the corner and with that is supposed to be the arrival of DC’s direct to consumer digital service. One of the shows that is set to be featured on that service is Titans, which is based on DC Comics’ Teen Titans. The team will include Robin, Beast Boy, Starfire, Raven, Hawk and Dove. Today Warner Bro’s Television has given us our first look at the leader of the Titans in costume, Dick Grayson aka Robin.

Brenton Thwaites is set to play Grayson in the series. He recently starred last summer in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Looking at the image, we can see that this takes a lot of inspiration from another Robin’s costume, Tim Drake, Batman’s third Robin. The costume was designed by Laura Jean Shannon who has worked on films like Iron Man, Scott Pilgram vs. The World, this month’s upcoming film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and over at the CW Black Lightning.

The series was first announced in development back in 2014 for TNT, but later was moved over to DC’s upcoming digital service which will include the third season of the animated series Young Justice: Outsiders as well as the recently announced Harley Quinn animated series. What is exciting about this series is that DC’s Entertainment Chief Creative Officer and long time comic book writer Geoff Johns, including DC Comic’s Rebirth Event Doomsday Clock, is going to be writing for this series. The show’s executive producers are Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.

Here is the official synopsis of Titans:

Titans is an all-new live-action drama series that follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.”

The show will also star Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Minka Kelly as Dove and Alan Ritchson as Hawk. It is only a matter of time before we get the opportunity to get a look at the other members of the team. Based on this first image what do you think of this look for Robin?

Warner Bros. Television’s Titans is set to debut on DC’s digital streaming service sometime 2018.
