Jorah Mormont has been charged with a new quest, one that will take him far away from fighting white walkers. Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen has landed the role of Bruce Wayne on the second season of DC's Titans. In contrast to the youthful incarnation of Bruce Wayne, we've seen grow up on Gotham, Titans version of the character will be unlike anything that's gone before. Here's the official character description (via Deadline) from the producers.
“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.”
Much like Ben Affleck's take on Bruce Wayne, Glen's will find the aging hero thinking about the next generation of crimefighters to pass the torch to when he's gone. It remains unclear if Glen will suit up as Batman, but there's bound to be some tension between him and Grayson when they're reunited. Glen joins the recently cast Esai Morales who was confirmed as starring as Slade Wilson (aka Deathstroke), a character that featured prominently in Arrow played by Manu Bennet.
Before we're introduced to the older Bruce Wayne, we have to say goodbye to the current one with next week's series finale of Gotham. David Mazouz will finally put on the cowl and cape in what's believed to be a flashforward episode that will wrap up the five season prequel. There will be more from the creators of Gotham with a prequel centered on the Wayne's trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth.
Titans season one is available on Netflix.
