The actors bringing Batman to life in the final season of Titans have finally been revealed. Yes, ‘actors’, in the plural sense of the word.
Stuntmen Maxim Savaria and Alan Moussi confirmed that they will be sharing the role of Batman for Titans, meaning fans should expect some intense actions scenes when Bruce Wayne loses his calm and starts killing enemies.

Well… cats out of the bag… or should I say the bat’s out of the cave lol • I share this one with my brother from another mother @maximsavarias 👊 We both had the honor of wearing Batman’s mask in the season finale of @dcutitans 😎 Got some fun behind the scenes coming soon 😁 . . . . . #imbatman #dcutitans #dcu #titans #batman #darkknight
Titans has dealt with Batman abstractly, referencing or framing Bruce in a way that his face is never seen, but his presence is felt. Given that the role is being played by two stuntmen, we expect that to continue to be the case. Don’t expect any closeup shots of Batman or any long conversations between Robin and Batman.
The episode will see Dick Grayson returning to Gotham after Batman loses himself and starts killing Joker and his other enemies. Grayson needs to stop Batman by any means necessary.
Titans has dropped names like Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League, and now is finally showing the Dark Knight on the screen.
Wonder Girl actress Conor Leslie previously told Comicbook.com that her heroic identity would continue to play a role in the series.
“I will say that you will definitely see Wonder Girl peek through,” said Leslie. “You will see elements of her come out. We’re seeing Donna in her photographer gear. Dick [Grayson] didn’t show up and she wasn’t wearing her suit all of the sudden. I think fans are going to want to know when we’ll see little peeks of Wonder Girl, and we will see it in the next episode — and some of her accessories.”
Curran Walters, who plays Jason Todd in the series also expressed interest in showing a comic book accurate portrayal of classic Red Hood storylines.
“You know what man, I would just love to show the fans the full Jason Todd storyline, but yeah, like you said, you see a roughness [in] Jason… almost sort of a big chip on his shoulder,” said Walters. “And you see him transform in the next episode between that fun cocky Jason Todd at the end and then you see him get pretty gnarly, and you know we’ll see where his character goes, but I would love to have the comic book fans have what they want.”
The season finale of Titans will premiere on December 21.
