It’s official: Bruce Wayne is heading to the small screen, and you’ll never believe who’s bringing him to life: Jorah Mormont from Game of Thrones.
Actor Iain Glen is set to portray a live-action version of the popular character on Titans, according to Deadline. The GoT star, 57, will have a recurring role on the DC Universe series, which will return for season two next fall.
Does Glen look familiar? It’s probably because he stars in the popular HBO series, which returns this Sunday for season eight. Of course, GoT isn’t his only acting credit.
Glen has also appeared in a number of TV shows and movies, including Downton Abbey, The Iron Lady, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Kick Ass 2, My Cousin Rachel and the Resident Evil franchise.
On Titans, he’ll play an older version of Wayne, who is still dedicated to protecting Gotham from evil. When he tries to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), he teams up with the Titans for a series of unexpected adventures. The series follows a superhero squad led by Batman’s enemy, Robin (aka Dick Grayson.)
While we’re thrilled that Wayne is finally joining the show, one thing is still unclear: Will Glen ever put on the Batman costume?
The DC Universe didn’t say, but if Ben Affleck can bring the character to life in Justice League and Suicide Squad, anything is possible.
Make us proud, Glen.
