Heroic Hollywood can confirm that Tony Zucco will appear On DC Entertainment’s Titans series for their new streaming platform.
Zucco is deeply seeded in Batman and Robin mythology as he is responsible for the murder of Dick Grayson’s family. This would lead to Bruce Wayne adopting Grayson and him later becoming Robin. Batman and Robin would later track down Zucco and have him arrested for his crimes. Zucco’s inclusion on the series makes a lot of sense as the Titans are usually Robin centric and having an episode that relays his backstory to those who may not be informed would work swimmingly.
Titans follows a group of young superheroes from all over the DC Universe when Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of the fearless band of new heroes known as the Titans.
The long in development live-action adaptation series hails from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is written by DC president and creative chief officer Geoff Johns, Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl) with Goldsman, Johns and Berlanti Prods’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter serving as executive producers.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”
