The first episode of The Freddy Funko Show is here! Batman & Robin are Freddy’s first guests in celebration of Batman Day!
Here is the first look at Brenton Thwaites as Robin in the upcoming live-action streaming series Titans. The Warner Bros. TV series will premiere in 2018 as part of DC’s direct-to-consumer digital service.
Titans stars Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand’r/Starfire, Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Dick Grayson/Robin, Teagan Croft (Home and Away) as Raven, Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Dawn Granger/Dove, Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Hank Hall/Hawk, and Lindsey Gort as Police Detective Amy Rohrbach.
The Robin super suit was designed by renowned costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book, among others.
Titans comes from executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. In the action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Fans can expect Titans to be a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Comic book fans know Dick Grayson as Batman’s famous sidekick, Robin. After Dick’s parents were murdered during their high-flying circus act, Bruce Wayne became Dick’s legal guardian and trained him to fight crime beside him. But after years as part of the Dynamic Duo, Dick struggled to find his place outside the Dark Knight’s shadow. Finally striking out as his own man, he emerges as a leader, mentor, and father figure to his new family, the Titans. It remains to be seen if the series will have Grayson transition into the hero Nightwing or if he will remain The Boy Wonder in the series.

The gatefold cover of Batman and Red Robin #19, posted in the New York Post, has revealed the return of Carrie Kelley.
The comic book will feature the first appearance of a character not seen since 1986, and never in an in-continuity issue of a DC comic: Carrie Kelley, better known as the Robin from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns.” In that 4 issue landmark series, Kelley served briefly as Robin in an alternate future in which Bruce Wayne comes out of retirement to don the cape and cowl again.
“What you’ll find out once you crack the book, is that she’s not exactly the ‘new Robin,’ but I don’t want to spoil the story and her introduction into Bruce Wayne/Batman’s life,” series writer Peter Tomasi told The New York Post. “In regards to how long she’ll be around, let’s just say that it’s a helluva lot longer than ‘one issue.’ I’ve got plans for Carrie that play well into the future.”
“It’s a New 52 version, but we’re staying close to Frank Miller’s visual template and personality of Carrie Kelley. She’s a college kid who’s got spunk and speaks her mind. This is not an alternate-earth Robin, this is simply a girl named Carrie Kelley who we learn knew Damian which in turn weaves her into the fabric of the DC Universe for the first time in 25 years,” Tomasi said of Carrie’s place in the modern Batman mythos. “It’s all real. It’s all in continuity. It’s all part of the Batman universe in the here and now. Carrie Kelley has found her way into The New 52 and she’s here to stay – in what capacity is anybody’s guess – except mine of course.”
Batman and Red Robin #19 will be released on April 10th.
