While Titans and the Arrowverse may be separate on-screen, it appears there is some connectivity off-screen. Filmmaker and podcaster Kevin Smith revealed recently on his show Fatman on Batman that Armen V. Kevorkian, who is the visual effects supervisor on Greg Berlanti’s DCTV shows on The CW, is apparently working on the upcoming Teen Titans adaptation.
During his recent episode, where he and his co-host Marc Bernardin reviewed Justice League, Smith dropped that tidbit as well as one exciting piece of information. Back when Brenton Thwaites got cast as Dick Grayson there was one major question on everyone’s minds. Will Dick still be Robin when Titans begin or will he be just starting out as Nightwing after having left his days as the Boy Wonder behind?
While this doesn’t answer that question completely, it does seem like we’ll indeed be seeing the Robin costume according to Smith. During the podcast, Smith quoted Kevorkian promising that Robin’s outfit is going to be amazing.
“There’s a guy who does effects for Flash and Supergirl, Armen Kevorkian and he is working on the Teen Titans show. He sent me a text this weekend going ‘You’re going to f—ing love the Robin outfit!’ It looks cool he said, so I’m looking forward to that Teen Titans show.”
In addition to his VFX work, Kevorkian has also directed a few episodes of both The Flash and Supergirl. Production has already started in Toronto, Canada on the first season which will consist of 13 episodes. Let us know in the comments below if you are excited about the Arrowverse’s excellent VFX supervisor working on Berlanti’s latest DC TV show!
“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”
