‘Game of Thrones’ star cast as Bruce Wayne in ‘Titans’ season 2

A new live-action Bruce Wayne....

Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen is to portray Bruce Wayne in the next series of Titans, it’s been announced.

Glen will play an older version of Wayne in the DC Universe TV show, which is slated to return to Netflix this Autumn.

The official character description from the producers reads [via Deadline.com]: “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.”

Deadline added that it’s not clear if Glen will appear in Batman’s costume at any point during the series.

Glen is perhaps best known for his role as the mercenary knight Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones: a role he reprises next week for the Season 8 premiere of the HBO series.

Fans may also recognise the Scottish actor from Downton Abbey and the Resident Evil franchise. His other film credits include The Iron Lady, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Kick Ass 2, and My Cousin Rachel.

In related news, last July Titans actress Anna Diop disabled comments on her Instagram account following what she called a racist backlash from comic book fans after her casting in the show.

Diop, who played an alien princess called Koriand’r/Starfire in the first series, which aired last year, wrote in a since deleted Instagram post: “Racist, derogatory and/or cruel comments have nothing to do with the person on the receiving end of that abuse. And because I know this – I am unfazed.”
