New casting breakdowns:
[DANIEL CROSS] Male, 17-19, Caucasian. Athletic, street smart, cocky, yet charming. His life is changed forever when he crosses a crime fighter and is given a new outlet for his rebellious ways. RECURRING GUEST STAR.

[JENNIFER ANDREWS] Female, 20s/30s, Caucasian. Small town, Midwestern girl gone to Hollywood, Jennifer is a star on the rise. She comes across a doe-eyed, All-American and naive in her approach to her art, and life. Jennifer emulates the classic girl-next-door actors from the 1940’s and 50’s. A bit Stepford-y in her thinking and appearance, Jennifer feels like a woman out of time. RECURRING GUEST STAR.

[CAROLINE] Female, 40s, Caucasian. Forever sleepless with worry, she’s the mother to a young, troubled teen. Seeking a recognizable cameo face or name. GUEST STAR.

[THE MESSENGER] Male, 50s-60s, Open ethnicity. Outwardly a warm and kind presence, he doesn’t seem the type to be powerful or malicious. But he has the ability to turn on a dime and be the most terrifying man you have ever met. Seeking offer only names/recognizable faces…RECURRING GUEST STAR.
Theories are:

"Daniel" - Danny Chase/Roy Harper.

"Jennifer" - Rita Farr (Elasti-Girl).

"Caroline" - Arella (Raven's mom).

"The Messenger" - Brother Blood.

Recent reports have also suggested that Tony Zucco - the man who caused the Graysons' deaths - will be making some sort of appearance in the series.
Tony Zucco's story has usually come to an end within the context of a Batman story featuring Robin. However, we have seen villains re-purposed many times now in comics-based television shows, so I would not be surprised to see Zucco show up to bedevil a grown Nightwing in this series.

Zucco's come back in a few modern stories, most notably Kyle Higgins' Nightwing run.

Dicks' even had a relationship with his daughter at some point...

DC Comics has a first look at actor Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) in his Robin costume. Check it out:

Wow, I was expecting justr small allusions to Dick's Robin history. Even with the reveal that there would be a costume, I wasn't expecting to see him in the full-on Robin suit :eek:.

Without getting a full-body shot, I'd say the costume looks pretty solid and comic-accurate, and Thwaites looks pretty good in it :cool:.

I also think it's pretty awesome that we'll finally be getting to see Robin in live-action again :D.

I imagine we'll probably see Dick transition into Nightwing in this series, and I imagine he'll probably also transition from the Tim Drake bo-staff to his traditional escrima sticks ;).

Maybe that's his arc, he's quit and tried to make a difference instead as a cop but he realizes he's wrong and suits up as Nightwing then rejoins/regathers the Titans.
