DC's Titans Casts Game Of Thrones Star As Bruce Wayne
While the DC show Titans isn't a Batman show and Bruce Wayne was only glimpsed occasionally, the shadow of the Dark Knight fell across the first season. Season 2 is set to premiere later this year and it looks like Wayne will play much bigger part. It has been announced that Game of Thrones star Iain Glen will play this iconic role.
As reported by Deadline, Glen will portray an older version of Wayne, who has been fighting crime as Batman for decades. Glen is best known for his role as Jorah Mormont in Game of Thrones--he has appeared in every season of HBO's fantasy hit and returns for the final Season 8 this month. He has also appeared in movies such as Kick Ass 2, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and three entries in the Resident Evil series.
It is unknown whether we'll actually see Bruce Wayne as Batman, but the official character synopsis gives us some idea of what to expect. It reads: "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 Season 2 will be released on the subscription service DC Universe, and is scheduled to arrive in the Fall. The main cast members from Season 1 are expected to return, namely Brenton Thwaites (Robin), Anna Diop (Starfire), Teagan Croft (Raven), and Ryan Potter (Beast Boy). In addition Esai Morales was recently cast as the villainous Deathstroke, and we'll see more of Joshua Orpin was cast as Superboy, who appeared briefly at the end of Season 1.
The DC Universe panel at Wondercon last month gave fans an idea of what else to expect from the service. There was a first look at Courtney Whitmore in Stargirl, which will premiere in early 2020. There was also a preview of the horror-themed Swamp Thing, which arrives in May, plus the second half the animated series Young Justice: Outsiders.
