Are you a Titans fan? Then you owe it to yourself to check out a new interview with the show's writer-producer Geoff Johns. Writer Sydney Bucksbaum at just chatted with the superhero vet about DC Universe's hit show, and he had some illuminating things to say about Dick Grayson and the journey he'll take from Robin to Nightwing!


"'We talked a lot about starting Dick Grayson as Nightwing,' say Johns. 'We all got to a point where we're going to miss and hop over what I think is a really interesting period of Dick Grayson's life where he left Batman and he was struggling to find a new identity and who he was.'


"That's when Johns, along with fellow Executive Producers Greg Berlanti and Akiva Goldsman, decided that Dick's journey would better mirror that of Rachel/Raven's if he wasn't Nightwing just yet.


"'We took a sliver of the comics that dealt with Dick Grayson post-Batman a little bit and amplified that even more, exploring what that period for Dick Grayson was really like,' Johns explains. 'Nightwing is such a stable, confident, emotionally balanced character—he's Dick Grayson when he's found his place in the world. We wanted to build up to him becoming Nightwing.'
