As the Teen Titans return for a second season on the DC Universe show, Titans, they’ll be joined by a familiar face. Played by Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen, the upcoming season welcomes Bruce Wayne to the Titans crew come the series’ fall premiere, according to Deadline.

For the gritty DC Universe show of superheroes led by Batman’s former sidekick Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Glen will portray an older version of Bruce Wayne. The official character description describes him as: “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.”
As expected, fans have plenty of thoughts on this DC casting news.

Early 90s Iain Glen looks like he would've been perfect prime Batman casting back then, so nice work Titans Casting Director. pic.twitter.com/BcilAUZXIj

I still can't believe we got Iain Glen as Batman! Jorah freaking Mormont! That's wild!! Titans is not holding back at all for season 2! Anyone that isn't excited about this, is either boring or dead inside. This is amazing news! #jorahmormont #Batman #GameofThrones #DCUTitans pic.twitter.com/ks6Je3usYX

Can't wait to see Iain Glen play Bruce Wayne in #Titans season 2.
1. The 1st season suffered ever so slightly for having nobody in that role.
2. Really, different, interesting casting.
Well done #DCUNIVERSE 👏#Batman

Netflix is casting Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne in Titans and I'm semi here for it? He nails the roles I've seen him in but idk if he's the right fit for Batman yet. Keen to see how it plays out though

Disappointed that Old Man Bruce's first live action appearance isn't on the big screen (Batman Beyond movie, anyone?) but… Iain Glen is an excellent choice.
Congrats, Titans, you've just gotten yourself a new viewer. https://t.co/tu3oZYDhgf

Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) as Batman is the casting decision I never knew I needed. Titans was already a pretty good show except for the finale ( which wasn't even supposed to be the finale) so this is exciting news.

"Game of Thrones' Iain Glen to Play Bruce Wayne in Titans Season 2"
That sound you hear is my high-pitched fangirl shrieking. This will continue until further notice.
