The new Titans season is just a day away from being premiered on the DC Universe streaming platform, but the new series is already stirring up excitement for its expansion with more heroes and villains in the franchise. But after Dick Grayson’s first season finale in an epic matchup with Batman, many fans have been clamoring to see more of DC Comics ‘ main characters in the fresh season. They’re going to have their wish with Iain Glen, who joined the cast of the show to play Bruce Wayne in the Titans ‘ second season.
Will fans see Batman?
But individuals are asking if the actor will suit up in the show as Batman, or if he will be limited to his civilian appearance. But showrunner Greg Walker lately disclosed more information about Glen’s role in Titans Season 2, explaining that he will continue to concentrate on the younger generation of heroes.
“He’s still Batman,” Walker explained. “We just don’t see him with the cape and cowl running around, and the bat signal.”
“We see versions of Batman…”
Walker added, “We see versions of Bruce that are in the conscious world and we see manifestations of Bruce that are, at times, not rooted in reality. People’s imaginations of Bruce take on their own form. Bruce is many things to many people. A limitation of the show is that we can’t have Batman. So we try to turn that into a lot of possibilities of exploring Bruce, and all the dimensions of Bruce.”
But Batman is still essential to the series, as Walker explained in an interview last month.
Batman was omnipresent in Season 1
“Well Bruce was a huge character on our show last year, you just didn’t see him, I mean for the most part,” said Walker. “For Dick, he was omnipresent and it felt like we really needed to dive into Dick’s relationship with Bruce to really understand Dick better. I was really excited as a writer to go into Bruce Wayne. There’s been so much done about Batman but there’s not a ton about being Bruce Wayne… Bruce is really awesome at being Batman, he’s kind of crappy at being Bruce.”
The second season of Titans premieres on September 6th. Are you excited? Tell us in the comments section below.
