After being teased in both the series and in behind-the-scenes photos and videos, Titans actor Brenton Thwaites has confirmed he will be adopting Dick Grayson's Nightwing persona during the DC Universe series' second season.
"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," Thwaites told ComicBook.com. "It feels imposing, and that's all I could ask for from a suit."
"I find the Nightwing costume is easier to get into character, for sure," he continued. "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."
