When it comes to DC on TV, we've seen a lot of legendary shows. Batman (the '60s version) brought The Dark Knight to life in classic campy fashion. Batman: The Animated Series brought gothic awesomeness to millions of childhoods. Smallville, [Arrow](series:720988) - and now [The Flash](series:1068303) - have all made younger versions of our favorite heroes accessible to an even wider audience.

But, through it all - and despite several Robins - there's one hero everyone's been waiting for: Nightwing.

And, with the recent announcement that the Junior Justice League themselves - the Teen Titans - are getting their own TV show - TNT'S upcoming [Titans](series:2265361) - that dream took one step closer to being a reality.

And yet...
And yet...

And yet, there was still no official announcement that Nightwing would, in fact, be appearing.

What if, many wondered, DC was withholding the right to use him on TV - and, instead, had plans to use him on the big screen? Would we ever actually see Nightwing at all?

Well - wonder no more, because...

Nightwing is Officially Coming to Titans!

YUP.
YUP.

That's right - Dick Grayson, a.k.a. the original Robin, a.k.a. Nightwing himself, is most assuredly on his way to Titans.

So much so, in fact, that Geoff Johns - Chief Creative Officer over at DC - tweeted a confirmation of that fact.

Specifically, after revealing that Titans will shoot next year...

...Johns went on to confirm that Nightwing would, in fact, definitely be in it...

Which is...downright awesome news. After all, the hero - Batman's original Robin, who graduated to being his own, slightly less-dark Knight - has been a fan favorite for years, and is a pretty darned integral part of the sort of Teen Titans TV show most fans want to see...

The Big Question, Though?

Other than where that explosion came from...
