Bleeding Cool asks: Is Drake Bell Joining The DCEU As Robin?

Given the actor's age, it seems more likely that he might be up for the part of Dick Grayson/Nightwing for DCE's Titans series (though I suppose that Bell could be the DCEU's Grayson). Besides, if I wanted Robin in The Batman, I would go right past Tim Drake and start looking to cast Damian Wayne.

EDIT 6/26:

Drake Bell Continues Teasing DC Role On Twitter; Could It Be Nightwing On ‘Titans’?

I really hope his portrayal of Nightwing is better than his voice role as Spider-Man in Ultimate Spider-Man.

But honestly, should Robin appear in the DCEU, I'd like to see Tim as Robin than Damian because I really don't like Damian, like at all.

There is also the issue of a young, teenage or preteen Damian as Robin. I think that it could be made to work (i.e. Hitgirl), but there is still much skepticism over the idea. It seems certain, though, that if Drake Bell is being cast as a Bat Family character then he will be Dick Grayson/Nightwing, either in the DCEU or in Titans.

So, assuming Tim Drake would be in his late teens (or early twenties at most), who would you cast for him?

Well, there has been a strong Twitter campaign for Ryan Potter to play Tim and I'm one of them who back the campaign.

It's most likely the Titans TV show role of Nightwing that Bell is considered for than the DCEU film since it has been confirmed that Titans will begin production in a few months time.

Ryan Potter is a little older than I would prefer in regards to an actor for Tim Drake, but he would certainly fall within the range of a casting call. I wouldn't have a problem with a half-Japanese Tim, though that might give him too much in common with Bruce's actual mixed-heritage son Damian.

Well, Damian isn't the only "not fully white" Robin since Dick has been confirmed to be of partial Romani descent.

CW could have another DC show? Wow. Given the paranormal angle, I'm down. If it gets the greenlight, hope it lasts longer than Constantine. It's an interesting mix of things -- paranormal angle, family, a lil twist on the X-Files pairing - skeptic and believer, a DC property.
I am curious if this will take place in the Arrowverse and be allowed to dive deeper into the magic corner of the DCU then Constantine did :).

Certainly the premise of a father/daughter team is a change of pace from the other Arrowverse shows as well ;).
