According to Variety, “The Graysons” will be heading to the CW network this fall. The series will follow a young Dick “DJ” Grayson before he takes the mantle of Robin.  The show is seen as a possible companion piece to “Smallville,” or, should this season be the last of “Smallville,” a possible replacement, Variety says.

In the comics, Dick Grayson was Batman’s first sidekick, Robin, then eventually became the masked hero Nightwing.  Robin was played by Chris O’Donnell in the 1990s films “Batman Forever” and “Batman and Robin,” and by Burt Ward in the 1960s film and television series.
