THR reports that Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) has been cast as Dick Grayson/Nightwing for the new live-action TV series, Titans, based on the Teen Titans comic books.
“Dick Grayson is one of the most important and iconic heroes in the DC Universe, and it wasn’t easy to find him but we have. Brenton has the emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protege and the Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character,” Geoff Johns said.
Titans will be available exclusively on DC’s digital service that will launch sometime in 2018
