Scottish actor Iain Glen, who is best known by fans for his portrayal of Ser Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones, has been confirmed to play Bruce Wayne in the DC Universe’s live-action adaptation of Titans. Aside from Game of Thrones, fans may also recognize him from The Iron LadyKick Asss 2My Cousin Rachel, and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. The Scotsman came from a formally trained background, starring in high-profile productions of A Streetcar Named DesireHamletHedda Gabler and more. Glen made his Royal Shakespeare Company debut back in 1994 in Henry V, and has since won the Bancroft Medal at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Titans has Glen portraying an older, more gritty version of Bruce Wayne, the official character description stating: “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.”

Whenever the Caped Crusader gets cast, fans tend to have mixed feelings about the choices — many were divided on Ben Affleck‘s casting — but many fans of Titans took to Twitter to show their support for Glen donning the black cowl. For now, it seems followers of the series are quite happy about the decision. Check out their tweets below.
