As principal photography continues on Season 2 of Titans in Toronto, new leaked set photos have provided more looks at the live-action series' incarnation of Nightwing.

Posted by a fan on Instagram, the photos show Brenton Thwaites sporting the character's classic black and blue outfit. In addition to the costume itself, Nightwing's signature escrima sticks can be seen stored on the back of the superhero's belt, with other photos showing the actor wielding the batons on set.

After transitioning from Robin to Nightwing in the original comic book source material, Dick began regularly employing batons in his arsenal, either as part of the martial arts form of escrima or using tasers fitted into the batons' ends. The weapons have long been associated with the character ever since and have been included in subsequent adaptations, including the Arkham video games and Young Justice.
