'Titans' Season 3 could feature the death of Iain Glen's Bruce Wayne and another Batman might just step in
If Bruce were to die that would put pressure on Dick to step up to the role of the Bat, something he's bound to avoid at all costs
The 'Titans' fanbase has been pretty divided over Iain Glen's inclusion on the show as Bruce Wayne / Batman. An older Batman, while realistic, isn't something a lot of the fans have been comfortable with but for better or for worse, Glen's coming back when the DC Universe show returns for Season 3.
Bruce Wayne's return was reportedly confirmed by director and cinematographer Boris Mojsovski on his Instagram account. While Glen's return is bound to be a joyful announcement for at least some of the fans, he might not stick around for long.
Using Batman in any form of media is a tricky business that usually requires a lot of negotiating between studios, which is why we haven't seen Glen in the Batsuit on the show. That might sound silly but it is a major concern and keeping the character around without allowing him to fully become who we know he is seems like a bit of a waste.
Plus, there's also the fact that the show is supposed to be about the Titans team as a whole and its focus is already heavily skewed towards Brenton Thwaites's Dick Grayson / Nightwing. Having Batman on the show further distracts from the main characters because let's face it, he's Batman.
So yes, as hard as it might be to accept, there's a pretty good chance this will be the last time we see Glen on the show and Bruce Wayne's death may indeed be on the way. If this does happen, that's going to really change things up for the show, especially since Dick only recently moved past his personal darkness and embraced the identity of Nightwing.
If Bruce were to die, that would put pressure on Dick to step up to the role of the Bat, something he's bound to avoid at all costs. But seeing as the alternative is letting Jason Todd / Robin (Curran Walters) take the role, maybe he won't have a choice in the matter at all.
Even if Bruce may be departing at the end of this season, there's another Bat character joining the fold. Mojsovski previously confirmed that Barbara Gordon / Oracle will be joining the show this season so that's something to look forward to.
Do you think Bruce might die this season? What are your thoughts on Glen as the character? Let us know in the comments.
'Titans' Season 3 was scheduled to arrive on DC Universe in Fall of 2020 but with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic halting production, there's no telling when the new season might arrive.
