If Titans' Nightwing Isn't Thicc, They Can Keep Him
If 'Titans' Nightwing Isn't Thicc, They Can Keep Him
The world has finally been blessed with a live-action Nightwing—but does he have the cakes he's so infamous for in the comics?
So the epic trailer for the Season 2 finale of DC Universe's Titans just dropped earlier today, and one of the biggest reveals that we've been waiting for ever since the costume pics leaked earlier this yearfinally happened: Nightwing has arrived!
Yup, Dick Grayson (played by Aussie heartthrob Brenton Thwaites) has finally shed every last bit of his sidekick, boy-wonder, Robin past and is now his own fully-realized hero, and the stans were so happy to see it!

While it's incredibly exciting to finally get a live-action version of Nightwing to fangirl over, I, as a loyal cake lover, did have one quick question/concern: is he thicc though???
For those that don't know, the Nightwing character is FAMOUS for his buns of steel. In fact, I would wager that Nightwing's behind rivals that of Marvel's Captain America (a.k.a. America's Ass), and nothing illustrates that more than this viral portrait of his cakes from artist Nicola Scott that sent the entire internet into an ass-fueled frenzy!

The only reason I bring all of this up is because in the trailer, while we do finally see him don his badass Nightwing suit, we don't get to see much of Dick's infamous cakes, which really is a damn shame when you think about it.
Luckily, I'm not the only crazy person who feels this way.
\u201cWait, wait, wait... NIGHTWING HAS MADE AN APPEARANCE IN TITANS???? I NEED TO KNOW... HOW'S HIS ASS? It it doesn't look perfect it's not accurate. \ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\u201d— \ud83c\udf4d\u26e7\u2b50\ufe0fElleven;\ud83d\udd5b\u27b0 (@\ud83c\udf4d\u26e7\u2b50\ufe0fElleven;\ud83d\udd5b\u27b0) 1574452422
\u201cThe #Nightwing suit looks good and all, but what\u2019s his ass look like in it?\u201d— dylan (@dylan) 1574394793

We'll just have to wait until the Season 2 finale to see if live-action Nightwing is as thicc as his comic counterpart. (If he's not, then what's the point tbh????) And trust us, we'll be on the lookout for that ass!!
The Season 2 finale of Titans airs Friday, November 29 on DC Universe!
