Look, ROBIN! Stop what you’re doing and look at this. YES! Dick Grayson’s first look as the original Boy Wonder, Robin in the upcoming Titans Live Action TV show has been revealed. I like it!!! I know they will eventually evolve his look to be Nightwing, so I am loving that they are starting with his Robin look first. What do you think of it?


Brenton Thwaites will be playing Batman’s original sidekick-turned-full-flesh superhero-leader. Titans is set to air on the upcoming DC direct digital service sometime in 2018. We do not know the rest of the team’s costumes, yet. So far we do know that Teagan Croft will be Raven, Anna Dior as Starfire, Lindsey Gort as officer Amy Rohrbach, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, and Minka Kelly as Dove.


I came across James Matthew Fuller by accident when I was researching some Nightwing/Gotham Knight videos. He starred as Robin in a short video by Tenshunn, over on YouTube. Obviously, I’m a huge Robin fan and seeing his work was very badass! Later we friended each other and have messaged each other a lot and this guy is pretty darn awesome.


Besides being a cancer survivor, James also a super cutie. He’s very talented in acting, singing, and dancing. I found out that he is working towards an audition for the casting of Nightwing/Dick Grayson in an upcoming Nightwing movie being directed by Chris McKay. So I figured, I’m pimping him out to show him to the world.


Matthew has a few projects that he is currently working. He recently completed treatment for cancer but he is fighting back and getting his life back on its original course. One project that I am interested in is a short movie called The Pride directed by Edi Mehana. I’ll post about that when it is released.

If you’re interested in seeing James’ role as Robin in the Red Hood short, check it out in the video below.

Cosplayer Shawn Webber also known as Dynamite Webber Cosplay is an amazing costuming badass! I am pretty sure sure the current artist of the Grayson DC comic book title bases Dick’s looks on Shawn himself. Seriously, the similarities between the two of them are insanely similar. I think Shawn is being stalked by the artist. Or at least he is being social media stalked at the very least.

Dynamite Webber Cosplay has several versions of Grayson. His particular favorite is usually a different rendition of Nightwing. This includes a Batman Arkham version, New 52, and his own take on Grayson’s costumed look. What’s great about is work is that most of his suits include lots of armor and battle weather pieces. He definitely has the process down to a science since his costumes look very legitimate and could be used in movies. Or at least the basis of future video games.

Other than Nightwing, Dynamaite Webber also has completed several other characters. His Punisher is one of the most practical costumes that I have seen of the character while still making it his own unique version. Also, look at his Green Lantern. If Ryan Reynolds had this costume, the Green Lantern movie would still have sucked, but at least he would have looked like a much cooler hero in a suit that people would want to emulate.

Shawn also has several other costumes that he’s made in the past that are either unique to his own characters like Wonder Warrior, and his black symbiote Spider-Man costume. Granted, he has also done regular Spidey too. But his Black Spider-Man is great. Most symbiote costumes focus on Eddie Brock or Peter before he went all dark. His version looks like Peter has been corrupted and has embraced his inner demons. It is very impressive. Plus, everyone can appreciate Wonder Warrior. Many men make gender bent Wonder Woman, but these are usually suppose to be Wonder Woman. His version looks like it is a completely different character that has his own backstory and exists alongside Princess Diana on Themiscyra.

One last point that needs to be made is that Dynamite Webber Cosplay is in great shape. Obviously he is super sexy. I have no choice but to post a couple of his shirtless pics. I can’t stop myself. He is a geek with abs, and a former wrestler for GBW Wrestling. He’s constantly working on new costumes and every time he posts new pics, they look even better than the previous versions. His level of perfection is always being risen and I would not be surprised if we saw him being cast as Dick Grayson in upcoming projects.

Anyways, I think I talked Shawn up enough. He’s pretty damn awesome, very sexy as hell and his costuming skills are genuinely top notch. Check out the pics below and check out Shawn’s Facebook fan page over at: DynamiteWebberCosplay.

If anyone ever asks, which comic book character is the biggest player? Nine times out of ten, even non-comic book fans will say Dick Grayson. He has had countless girlfriends, lovers, and just random sleeping partners. What’s even better is that he’s almost always still friends with all of his ex-partners. There’s so many theories as to why writers made Dick into such a pretty boy that is also a huge player. One of the wider theories is that Dick is actually bisexual or possibly gay. Even since his introduction, there seemed to be a focus on his and Bruce’s relationship that did not go unnoticed. Never explicitly stated, but so many people could see some underlying features.


We won’t go into the age differences and the possible pedophilia aspect of what this could entail. We will just assume that Bruce was being a father and allowed Dick to sleep in his bed for a bit of time before adjusting to his home at Wayne Manor. But could Dick’s sexual appetite actually be a sign that he is compensating for his desire for the same gender?


Sometimes I think that DC writers deliberately gay bait Dick Grayson and make readers think- ‘Wait, is he gay?’ In issue #9 of Grayson, written by Tom King and Tim Seeley has full page spread of Grayson asking straight- ‘Am I Straight?’ Granted, this is taken out of context, this is suppose to be Dick asking whether or not his ‘tie’ was straight. But this is just blatant gay baiting. It’s humorous and I enjoy what is being done, but there is a certain point that readers have to wonder what the writers are really intending for their character.


It would definitely explain a lot of Dick’s character if his sexuality was pulled into question. In the end, it really does not matter since each writer has their own unique way of portraying their characters. Any character that has been heterosexual for the duration of their history who suddenly are outed as being gay, despite many gay overtones, is still going to cause a huge uproar within the geek and non-geek community alike.


Just look at what happened when the alternate teenage version of Iceman was forced out of the closet by Jean Grey. Some fans went ballistic and thought that their best friend was just accused of murder.


Regardless, in the end, doesn’t everyone love Dick? Grayson that is. What do you think?
