Brenton Thwaites, who plays Robin/Dick Grayson on DC’s Titans, was recently seen with a look that closely resembles that of Blüdhaven superhero Nightwing.
The Titans season finale left us with a huge cliffhanger. We saw the demon Trigon effectively manipulating Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson into submission, Raven realizing what a bad idea it was to summon her father and the other Titans were bound to find out that they were in big trouble, probably in the Titans season two premiere. This obviously left us with a lot of questions regarding the Titans’ well-being in the next season, but recent cast announcements seem to hint that they’ll be able to survive Trigon’s wrath. At least for the time being.
Also, the series was slowly showing us that Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson was fed up with Batman and he wanted to be connected to the Robin persona no longer. In the comics, Dick Grayson drops the mantle as Robin to become Nightwing and fight for Blüdhaven. His character arc in the first season of Titans sure looks like Nightwing appearing in the second season is a big possibility. Well, Brenton Thwaites’ current look seems to tease Nightwing’s appearance in Titans very soon. Check this photo out:
Although this might be a longshot, and Brenton Thwaites is clearly using a Robin hoodie in the photo, how his character developed in the series and how Dick Grayson is trying to distance himself from Batman, may be an indication of Nightwing appearing in the series. Nightwing is also heavily featured in the Titans comic books, so we have that as background as well.
