Robin, meet Robin.
In honor of Batman Day, DC released its very first clip of the new live-action DC Universe series, Titans.
Dick (Brenton Thwaites), a.k.a. Nightwing/the “old” Robin, meets Jason Todd (Curran Walters), a.k.a. the “new” Robin/Dick’s replacement. Quite a strange encounter I imagine and this clip shows an interesting reflection of Robin’s journey from Boy Wonder to Nightwing.
Meant as a grittier take on the Teen Titans comic book series, Titans starts off with Dick trying to distance himself from his violent past. Working as a detective, he runs into our beloved but troubled Raven, the daughter of a demon, and the two hit the road running from those hungry for Raven’s powers. Along the way, of course, they’ll find familiar Titans characters, Starfire and Beast Boy.
The show will premiere on the new DC Universe streaming platform October 12 with new episodes every Friday.
