Iain Glen

‘GoT’ Star Iain Glen Joining ‘Titans’ Cast as Batman!

The noble knight of Game of Thrones, Jorah Mormont, is on his way to becoming the next Dark Knight of Gotham.

Deadline reports that multi-talented stage and screen actor (and GoT icon!) Iain Glen will play The Batman on Season 2 of Titans next fall.

The show’s producers provided a description of their Batman, explaining:

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.

Glen’s other popular franchise performances include Downton Abbey and Resident Evil.

It goes without saying that the man has range, and, based on what we know so far, we’re likely to see a portrayal of Bruce Wayne that is similar to the older mentor figure depicted in Batman Beyond. This will be exciting even if we won’t be seeing an accompanying Terry McGinnis, but it seems as though we may be on our way there.

Fans have also been speculating about how and when Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson will receive his iconic Nightwing suit. Given the show’s direction and upcoming dynamic between Bruce and Dick, it’s likely that the caped crusader will provide the new suit as part of his peace offering.
