Holy casting news, Batman!
With Titans recently adding Deathstroke and his offspring to its upcoming second season, we now have word that a major genre favourite will be turning up as the Caped Crusader.
Courtesy of Deadline, Iain Glen has signed on to play Bruce Wayne when Titans returns for its second year. Glen is likely best known to genre fans as Jorah Mormont in Game of Thrones, not to mention having a recurring role in the Resident Evil franchise.
For those who have already checked out the impressive debut season of Titans, you’ll be aware that Batman does indeed make an appearance in the season finale. Played by Kickboxer: Vengeance’s Alain Moussi there, we saw a murderous Dark Knight snap and finally start killing off some of his longtime foes. It ultimately comes down to Dick Grayson to track down his former mentor and put him out of his misery. In true comic book fashion, mind, the World’s Greatest Detective’s rampage would all merely be part of a hallucination.
As alluded to, Glen will join fellow new additions in the shape of Esai Morales as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Chella Man as Joseph Wilson/Jericho, Chelsea T. Zhang as Rose Wilson/Ravager and Joshua Orpin as Superboy.
Adding these new characters to the mix of a show that has already laid some fantastic foundations with its first season? Well, that could lead to some truly special TV.
Season 2 of Titans is expected to premiere towards the end of the year.
