Where there’s one Robin, there’s another.

And Titans, the upcoming live-action superhero show slated to premiere on DC’s DC Universe platform next month, will have two. Meet Jason Todd: smarmy jerk, new Robin, and person who maybe stole the Batmobile? Happy Batman Day, everyone!

This clip is short, but, honestly, I adore it. Titans got off to a bad start in public perception (though, as we’ve discussed before, fuck Batman), and it’s impossible to know if this is representative of the whole series. But I do know one thing: This absolutely nails Jason Todd. He’s the annoying little brother of Robins; the cocky punk who eventually grows into the unloved middle child of the whole Bat-Family. This is my Jason Todd, the one I’ve loved and hated for years.
If I have one wish for Titans, it’s that we see a lot of this little jerk. I love him so much.
