‘Titans’ Star Brenton Thwaites Compares His Nightwing & Robin Suits

Brenton Thwaites, star of the DC Universe series Titans compares his Robin suit to his new Nightwing suit.

While speaking with comicbook.com, Brenton Thwaites discussed his time with the Nightwing costume on set, and describes how the costume change applies to the development of Dick Grayson/Robin on Titans:

“It’s easier to move in, it’s more flexible, it’s more imposing, and I think that adds to the kind of the feeling that I have when I put it on, which transforms to my character, which is assuming his confidence, and leadership, and strengths. It feels imposing, and that’s all I could ask for from a suit.”

Brenton Thwaites compared and contrasted the Nightwing suit to the previous Robin suit:

“I find the Nightwing costume is easier to get into character, for sure. The Robin one, maybe because there was so many pieces, so many elements of it, you kind of get covered up too much emotionally. I don’t know if that’s … Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe we should try and analyze this, but the Nightwing costume, although it does cover me up, it feels quite revealing, and I think that’s a good thing for Dick Grayson in that point of the story is that he’s found who he is and he’s revealing himself to people.”

It appears that Brenton Thwaites believes that the Nightwing persona best represents Dick Grayson as a character.

In the comics, Dick Grayson retires the Robin moniker and becomes Nightwing to reinvent himself beyond his role as the vigilante partner to Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman. Although other characters have taken on the mantle of Nightwing, Dick Grayson is the most prominent character to assume that persona.
