‘Titans’ adds ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne
Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen has his schedule sorted for his post-GoT life, as he’s been tapped to play Bruce Wayne on Titans.
While we don’t yet know what the final season of Game of Thrones will bring to Ser Jorah Mormont, we do know what is next for the actor portraying him, Iain Glen. Glen is leaving Westeros and traveling to Gotham in DC Universe’s show Titans.
But Glen isn’t playing just anyone when he joins in the vigilante fun on Titans second season. According to Deadline, Glen will be bringing Batman to life, playing Bruce Wayne himself.
What can we expect to see from Glen’s version of Batman? Well, he’s definitely several years removed from the young, spandex-wearing, caped crusader. Titans producers explained Glen’s version of Bruce Wayne as a much older man, but just as driven to fight for what is right.
“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.”
If you haven’t checked out the first season of Titans, it’s a great time to catch up. The show follows Batman’s former sidekick Robin, whose real name is Dick Grayson. After parting ways with Batman, Dick Grayson creates a team of heroes including Star Fire, an alien princess, a powerful empath named Raven, and a shape-shifter called Beast Boy.
We are just dying to see how introducing Bruce Wayne back into the mix will change the storyline and alter the new life Dick Grayson worked to build for himself. We also can’t wait to find out if Bruce will ever don the Batsuit, or if he’ll stick to suits as Bruce Wayne and leave the crime fighting to the Titans.
Regardless of what happens, season 2 of Titans is shaping up to be awesome. You can catch up on season 1 by streaming the show on DC Universe.
