Over the weekend, the first official pic for Titans was released showing off the young Australian-born actor in costume as young hero Dick Grayson, but not as his Nightwing alter ego.

Titans is expected to debut in 2018 on Warner Bros.' new DC Comics streaming service.

When Thwaites' character is announced as part of "Titans" season 1, he is said to play the role of Grayson and no mention of Robin's name.

Thwaites' marvelous Robin costume is made by Laura Jean Shannon, especially for the upcoming new series. Other characters who follow in Grayson's tights include Jason Todd and Tim Drake. She has been known for creating other stunning superhero outfits from "Black Lightning", "Iron Man", "The Jungle Book", and more.

Titans will help launch DC's very own streaming service which is set to come out sometime next year. Later, he will take on the superhero moniker Nightwing.

The series also stars Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand'r/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6: The Series) as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson (Blood Drive) as Hank Hall/Hawk, Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Dawn Granger/Dove and Lindsey Gort (The Carrie Diaries) as Detective Amy Rohrbach.

In the comics, Batman took a young Grayson under his wing after his parents were murdered.

He may have spent years in the shadows as Batman's sidekick.

It's not 100% confirmed as to whether we will see Brenton as Robin, or only Nightwing.

It's past been broadcast as the animated series Teen Titans, from 2003-2007, and Teen Titans Go!, from 2013 until the present.
