Tim Drake will be the second version of Robin to join Titans after Brendan Thwaites’ Dick Grayson, who eventually takes on the mantle of Nightwing. There is no word whether Lycurgo’s character will have teamed up with the Caped Crusader in this series’ story yet, and his relationship with Grayson will certainly be something to keep an eye on.
Variety is reporting that Titans on HBO Max has cast Jay Lycurgo in the role of Tim Drake for Season 3. Drake is described as follows in the article.
… a streetwise kid who’s managed to grow up on the toughest streets without losing his indelible belief in heroism. His easy-going demeanor is backed up by a near-genius mind, a natural detective with a perception of detail far beyond his years. Fans of the “Batman” comics will recall that Drake served with Batman as the third Robin.”
Lycurgo followed this announcement on social media with a post on his Twitter account:

This will also mark Lycurgo’s second major appearance in a DC property after playing a small role in 2022’s The Batman. It seems highly unlikely that he will play Tim Drake in the DCEU movie after being seen as a thug in the original trailer from DC FanDome, and Titans should serve as a great opportunity for a more prominent part with the popular comic book show.
