Drake Bell Continues Teasing DC Role On Twitter; Could It Be Nightwing On ‘Titans’?

Posted by June 26, 2017 Comment

Over the weekend, Drake Bell, the actor who voiced Peter Parker in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and starred in the Nickelodeon show Drake and Josh, tweeted and deleted an image of the logo for DC superhero Robin along with the text “Boy Wonder?”

Since any mention of a popular superhero by an actor on social media is indisputable proof that the actor will play that character in an upcoming superhero film, it was reasonable to conclude that Bell will be joining the DCEU to play Robin, or perhaps voicing him in an upcoming animated film, or playing him on the live-action Titans show.

But which Robin? To answer that question, Bell took to Twitter again with a series of extremely complex encoded messages:

Bleeding Cool placed a team of highly trained cryptographers on the case to decode these messages, and what we found will probably shock you. In the first tweet, Bell posts a photo of Dick Van Dyke, followed by a gray color swatch, and then the sun. In the next one, Bell posts a photo of a knight, and a photo of chicken wings.

Are you thinking what we’re thinking?

That’s right, those wings look delicious. Mmmm. Wings.

What were we talking about?

Oh yeah, it looks like Bell is hinting at a role as Dick Grayson. Now the only question is where Bell will be playing this role. We’ll be closely monitoring his Twitter feed for more info on this and shirtless photos, and we’ll let you know as soon as we know more, but the live-action Titans show seems more likely than ever.

Just last week, rumored casting calls for the show went out, and one of the characters seems a lot like Nightwing:

John Crossland: Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD

Do you think Drake Bell would fit that role?
