Titans star Brenton Thwaites recently explained that he doesn’t think his Nightwing will ever crossover into Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe.
Although Brenton Thwaites finally became Nightwing in Titans season two, the star doesn’t think his version of Dick Grayson will make it into The Batman opposite Robert Pattinson. The actor recently originally thought he was being cast for a Nightwing solo film before realizing it was for Titans. His version of the hero is a disenchanted vigilante who leaves Iain Glen’s Batman behind to form his own team, but it doesn’t seem like he’ll be joining forces with Robert Pattinson in The Batman any time soon.
During an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Titans star Brenton Thwaites explained that although Matt Reeves has the perfect opportunity to unite the worlds of DC television and the movies, he doesn’t think Titans is the right place to do so. Given that Reeves is creating a prequel series set in the same universe as Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, clearly the filmmaker has some ideas on how to create a coherent universe that spans between film and TV. But unfortunately, it seems Thwaites won’t be reprising his Titans role on the big screen any time soon.
“I think the DC TV and movie worlds are still quite separate. This might be a chance for Matt Reeves, the director, and DC Films to integrate that somehow. I would love to do it, but I don’t think Titans is that property.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Titans season two:
In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Minka Kelly as Dove, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, Chelsea Zhang as Rose, and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne.
