A new image of Brenton Thwaites in his Nightwing costume from the discarded version of the Titans Season 1 finale has been revealed.
The original season finale for Titans was shelved by DC Universe, with the intended penultimate episode reworked into a finale, complete with a cliffhanger to set up the second season that was already ordered. A new, largely refilmed episode took its place as the premiere for that second season. One of the big changes that would have happened is that Brenton Thwaites became Nightwing at the end of the first season instead of at the end of the second. As relayed through Reddit, a new image of Brenton Thwaites in action as Nightwing has surfaced online.
You can check out the image of Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing in the canned Titans Season 1 finale below:
It appears as though this suit was something of a prototype for the design that they would end up using in the Season 2 finale of the show. In any case, it seems like there won’t be two Robins on the show anymore, now that Dick Grayson has assumed his new title.
Here is the official synopsis for Titans Season 2:
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 Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne.
The first two seasons of Titans are now airing on DC Universe, with a third season officially ordered. Stay tuned for the latest news on Nightwing, Brenton Thwaites, and the future of Titans.
