A new clip is giving fans an exciting glimpse at DC Universe's upcoming series Titans. In it, Dick Grayson a.k.a. the first Robin, runs into Batman's current Robin, Jason Todd. And it does not take long before a little rivalry between Batman's past and present sidekicks ignites. Then Jason lets something slip that puts further friction on an already tense situation. You can catch it for yourself starting at the 2:17 mark in the video below:

Poor first Robin. He never got to drive the Batmobile. Why Batman? Why? That the revelation may help explain that infamous F-bomb that Robin dropped in the trailer. Adding support to the strained feelings, Robin has towards his mentor, which have previously been teased. This all a theory, of course.

The exclusive clip shared by DC Daily offers a lot to get excited about when it comes to _Titans-- _perhaps as much as even the first trailer. There's just so much to love about this clip. First of all, it is humorous, which indicates the show will have a sense of levity. And secondly, the clip gives you an even better idea of what the actors' takes on their characters will be, especially Dick.

In this exchange alone, you can tell that Brenton Thwaites' characterization of Dick Grayson is as a steady and somewhat brooding figure. In many ways, mirroring Bruce Wayne. While it is a brief scene, it captures a lot of what Thwaites is primed to bring to this role. For instance, there is a lot that Thwaites' Robin says without saying it in this scene, which is a strong asset to have. Plus, good buddy chemistry is a rare find that Titans seems to have struck upon.

This clip establishes the potential for such a dynamic to be established between the Robins. Curran Walters' Jason Todd blasts on to the screen with an electric approach to his dialogue that gives the scene a jolt of cheerfulness. And his enthusiasm over being Batman's new Robin is irrepressible and infectious. And actor Curran Walters is impressively able to make that not come across as arrogant, rather self-assured.

So, there is a lot to look forward to here. Titans will chronicle Dick Grayson/Robin as he leads a team of young superheroes to fight evil and other bad things. Titans premieres Friday, October 12 on DC Universe. The streaming service itself will launch on September 15. And new episodes of Titans will not be available to binge all at once. Instead, they will be released weekly, every Friday following its premiere.

The first season will include 12 episodes, so you can count on roughly three months of anticipating the next chapter, once the season begins. With some more time to go before Titans is released, there are a lot of other fall offerings to satiate you while you wait.
