A new rumor indicates that Nightwing will appear in Season 2 of DC Universe’s Titans.
Not only does the rumor reveal that Nightwing will show up, but they also indicate he will be wearing his iconic blue and black costume. He will not be wearing the red and black one.
The rumor comes from Lance Ausfresser, the admin of the DC’s Titans on the DC Universe Streaming Channel Facebook group.
Lance posted to the group simply writing, “Nightwing is coming in a few more months.” He added a photo of a number of Nightwing figures in the blue and black costume.
In the comments, Lance replied to a question about what color Nightwing would be. He responded, “He’s gonna be the blue.. no red.”
Brenton Thwaites, who plays Dick Grayson on Titans, did state that he has a new costume for Season 2.
“I don’t know if I have a new one…I think we…yes, I have a new one. I haven’t tried it on yet so I’m anticipating the day I get to try that on and see how it looks. See how it fits. See if I can move in it, I probably can. Yeah, I’m excited to try that on.”

Casting news for Titans Season 2 indicates DC Universe will be adapting the iconic Judas Contract storyline. The storyline takes place after Wally West and Dick Grayson retired from the Teen Titans. However, Grayson is still working with the team.
One of the team’s up and coming members Terra Markov is actually spying on the group and feeding the information she has acquired to Deathstroke.
Deathstroke uses that information to effectively take down each member of the Teen Titans. However, he fails to take down Dick Grayson. In fact, Deathstroke would even note he had “never let anyone escape me before.”
After discovering his team members have been captured by Deathstroke, Grayson adopts a new identity, Nightwing. He sets off to rescue his teammaters with the help of Slade Wilson’s son Joey who adopts the name Jericho.
DC Universe’s Titans Season 2 has already cast Esai Morales as Deathstroke. They also cast YouTuber and model Chella Man as Jericho. Deathstroke’s daughter Rose Wilson aka Ravager has also been cast. She will be played by Andi Mack.
This wouldn’t be the first time the iconic storyline is adapted. Warner Bros. Animation recently did an animated movie adaptation.
If this rumor does pan out to be true, Nightwing will be portrayed by Brenton Thwaites who took on the role of Dick Grayson in the first season of DC Universe’s Titans.
Titans Season 2 is expected to debut sometime in Fall of 2019 exclusively on the DC Universe streaming service.
Are you looking forward to seeing Nightwing in Titans Season 2? What kind of expectations do you have for his costume? Do you think we might get a look at the original Nightwing costume? Or will they go for the more modern black and blue costume?
