Leaving his Khaleesi to save Gotham.
We’ve technically already seen the Titans‘ version of Batman in the final episode of its first version, but that was actually stunt doubles Alain Moussi and Maxim Savaria. In the upcoming season 2 of Titans, we’ll finally be meeting the real Bruce Wayne, portrayed by none other than Game of Thrones star Iain Glen.
Game of Thrones fans will know Glen as the faithful and loyal Ser Jorah Mormont in the TV series, but he has also starred in movies like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Kick-Ass 2, and the Resident Evil franchise.
According to the producers of Titans, Glen’s Bruce Wayne/Batman will be an older version of the character, similar to Ben Affleck’s take but probably closer to the one in the The Dark Knight Returns comics. Here’s the official description (via Deadline):
“After decades of fighting crime as Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne is just as driven to protect Gotham from evil as he was in his prime.
Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.”
Titans follows the popular young group of superheroes comprising of Robin/Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft), and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter). The first season also featured the live-action debuts of second Robin, Jason Todd (Curran Walters) and Donna Troy (Conor Leslie).
Besides Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne/Batman, the second season of Titans will also introduce Esai Morales in the role of villain Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Joshua Orpin as Connor Kent/Superboy, as well as Deathstroke’s son and daughter, Joseph Wilson and Rose Wilson played by Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang, respectively.
The entire first season of Titans is currently available to watch on Netflix. Earlier this year, I discussed the many reasons why more people should definitely watch DC’s Titans in my article, which you can check out here.
Meanwhile, Iain Glen is set to reprise his role as Ser Jorah Mormont in the final season of Game of Thrones next week.
