    8/27:
    As Frontier states, the core, lead cast that Titans is starting out with seems to be just Nightwing, Starfire, Beast Boy and Raven. Other former Teen Titans might still be around. We'll see how things go from there.

    8/31: Titans as found its Nightwing. Twenty-eight year old Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) has reportedly been cast as Dick Grayson. Maybe Drake Bell was referring to the DCEU movies or dropped out of the project. Might Bell be voicing Nightwing in Young Justice: Outsiders?

    Also: DC's Titans TV Show Reportedly Looking to Cast Hawk and Dove.
    Note that the castings for Hawk and Dove have not been confirmed.

    I can't say I've seen him in much, though obviously he's got the physical fitness and attractiveness of Dick Grayson down, so I'm willing to give him a chance ;).

    I can't say I'm all that bothered by Drake Bell not playing Nightwing in any DC-related media :sweat:.

    Hawk and Dove were part of the initial announced roster for the TNT Titans, so it's interesting seeing them back here. Their abilities are probably easier to do on a tight budget, unlike 3/4 of the main cast, which probably helps :p.

    Never really thought of Dove/Dawn as a thrill-seeker though...

    I know a lot of movies Brenton has been in but the only show I ever really watched that he was in was Slide, which was pretty much an Aussie version of Skins. I don't think any of his big US movies were the most well received but I don't think I've heard much complaints about him. I still don't really have much of an idea how this show will be as a Titans adaptation but I'm hoping for the best

    It does seem like much more of a Hawk thing. The possible inclusion of Ritchson really reminds me that these definitely aren't Teen Titans outside of a Raven that's still practically a tween.

    I'm not sure that Bell isn't playing Nightwing in something, just not in this.

    Well, Garfield, at least, is also supposed to still be a teen.

    Why are you so on it about Drake Bell again?

    They're casting also for Amy Rohrbach (a character from the 90s Nightwing comics). DC is reportedly looking for a female aged 25-35 and the casting call states, "she is the detective alongside Dick Grayson who knows more than she lets on. Pretty, has tattoos."

    I'm not. What have you got against the guy? I'm just curious about all his posts on social media a while back about the role of Dick Grayson/Nightwing (this was before the tragic death of his girlfriend, which might have affected his involvement in any such project). If they weren't about Titans then it must have been a different project. I also saw that he has done a lot of voice acting, suggesting an animated project might be involved.

    Well, yes. That's why I posted about it as well.

    I don't. I just wanted to be reminded of why you mentioned him a couple times.

    You just beat me to it; I had just seen the Deadline article which notes that Hawk & Dove will be recurring roles throughout the first season and not series regulars (though that could change in season two).

    DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television have issued an open casting call for the role of Beast Boy ('Jax') in the series Titans.
    Compare with the original casting call:
    This does make me wonder if Gar might get a new civilian name (though probably not 'Jax').

    Could be. I remember being confused when they introduced Jax on the Flash since at the time I didn't remember the character from the 80s Firestorm comics and thought they renamed Jason Rusch but then I remembered he was working at Mercury. But I digress. Beast Boy. Maybe they'll use his middle name "Mark"?

    It's kind of strange that they're still casting for him right now.

    Michael Ausiello reports for TVLine that Lindsey Gort Joins DC's Titans...

    At this point I'm wondering if Beast Boy has been cast, but they are saving the announcement for the big press release with the details about the new digital platform. Or at least for NYCC.

    Yeah, if any character is going to need a lot of CG shots, it's Starfire ;).
