Titans is finally putting a face to its Batman, and its Iain Glen from Game of Thrones.

Known for playing Ser Jorah Mormont on HBO’s Game of Thrones, is 57-years-old and hails from Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s been actively working as an actor since his debut on the ITV series Taggart in 1986.

It seems that in spite of seeing a more athletic – and presumably younger – Batman in season 1 of Titans, things are changing a bit for the series. According to the character breakdown provided by Deadline, this is going to be an older Bruce Wayne. “After decades of fighting crime as Batman,” says the description, “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.”

With the emphasis on Bruce Wayne in the description, it’s impossible to tell if we’ll ever see Glen in the cowl or not. It would certainly be easy enough to have him in the suit with the cowl pulled back. We’ll just have to wait and see what the plan is.

Titans season 2 is shaping into a heck of a season it would seem. In addition to Bruce Wayne having a part this year, we also have the Wilson family to contend with, that’s not going to leave a ton of room for other storylines it feels like. Esai Morales has signed on as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, while Chella Man will play his son Jericho, and Chelsea T. Zhang will take on the role of Rose Wilson.

DC Universe has now confirmed the season will launch some time this fall.
