Meet your latest Bruce Wayne: Iain Glen.
Iain Glen, perhaps best known for playing the eternally friend-zoned Jorah Mormont on the hit series Game of Thrones, has been cast as Bruce Wayne in the second season of DC series Titans. He’ll be joining regulars Brenton Thwaites (Dick Grayson, aka Robin), Anna Diop (Starfire), Teagan Croft (Raven) and Ryan Potter (Beast Boy). Season 2 will also include Ozark actor Esai Morales as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke .
It’s still unclear as to how much Bruce will have to do in the second season, but it sounds substantial enough. As per the official character description: “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.”
We’ll see if Glen gets to actually don the Dark Knight’s suit or if he’ll simply be seen as Wayne the whole time. Hopefully we see him as Batman, considering how much the Caped Crusader was teased in season one. On the big screen side of things, Matt Reeves is still developing a new Batman movie – which will not have Ben Affleck back in the role.
Titans was renewed for a second season back in October 2018. It’s expected to begin airing towards the end of the year.
Glen, whose credits also include Downton Abbey, Jack Taylor, Resident Evil: Apocalypse & Extinction, and Aussie series Cleverman, will be reprising his role as Jorah Mormont in Game of Thrones‘ final season – beginning on April 14.
