‘Titans’: Brenton Thwaites Suits Up As Nightwing With Anna Diop’s Starfire In New Image

Titans Anna Diop Krypto the Super Dog

Check out Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing as he leaves the Robin mantle behind and teams up with Anna Diop’s Starfire along with the rest of the Titans in this new image.

We’re still ways away from seeing Titans season two and how Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson and Anna Diop’s Starfire will face the demon Trigon in order to save Beast Boy and Raven. Although we still don’t have many details about season two, we know that this time around the Titans led by Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson and Anna Diop’s Starfire will have to face Deathstroke, his son Jericho, his daughter Ravager, and the inclusion of Superboy to boot. We know that several characters like Hawk, Dove, Jason Todd, Cyborg, and Wondergirl are all around the DC Universe but we’re still missing them team-up with these characters. How awesome would it be to see them teaming up against Trigon and Deathstroke?

Well, a digital artist went ahead of us and united all of them in one fantastic image. It puts Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson front and center, not as Robin but instead as his other alter-ego superhero Nightwing along with Anna Diop’s Starfire. Check it out:


Titans slowly showed us that Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson was fed up with Batman and that he no longer wanted to be connected to the Robin persona. In the comics, Dick Grayson drops the mantle of Robin to become Nightwing and fight for Blüdhaven. Brenton Thwaites’ 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. Although this might be a longshot, how Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson has developed in the series and how he’s 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.

Anna Diop’s Starfire had a much more confusing character arc, to say the least. Also, fans were not happy about her costume in the series and several others were confounded with Anna Diop’s selection to portray Koriand’r. Even though Anna Diop’s Starfire is the most powerful of all Titans, she’s still not in total control of her powers. To make matters worse, Anna Diop’s Starfire still doesn’t understand where she comes from and Titans season one leaves many questions unanswered for people who aren’t familiar with the Teen Titans. Anna Diop’s Starfire was last seen entering Raven’s house with Donna Troy during the events of the Titans season one finale awaiting a confrontation with the demon Trigon.

What do you think comes next for Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson and Anna Diop’s Starfire? Are you excited for the day when Brenton Thwaites finally suits up as Nightwing? Sound off in the comment section down below!

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
