    I guess he's Beast Man now, guess they couldn't find the right kid.

    Well, he looks young enough that he could pass as "Beast Boy" ;).

    Maybe they were actually shooting for 16 instead?

    New casting breakdowns:
    Theories are:

    "Daniel" - Danny Chase/Roy Harper.

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

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

    "The Messenger" - Brother Blood.

    Oh man Danny Chase, I know a certain comic reviewer in a fedora who would be really happy about him getting relevant again.

    Well, that's one bit of Dick's backstory that looks to still be intact...

    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...

    I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually see at least two or three Robin costumes: Dick Grayson's original; his young adult version (possibly the same but for size); Jason Todd's; Tim Drake's costume; etc.

    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:

    I'm still not sure if Dick is supposed to be Robin in the present time or if this image reflects a flashback to just before he transitions to Nightwing. Either way, I think we will see Thwaites as Nightwing before the season is over.

    The coloring and material reminds me of the Batman Forever costume a little.

    I really want to see what Starfire will look like.

    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.

    I am kind of curious to see how direct they get in referencing Batman.
