The first look at Bruce Wayne in season 2 of Titans has arrived thanks to a new set video. The first season of Titans debuted last fall on DC's digital service DC Universe and introduced subscribers to the young group of heroes. Their lineup consisted of Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Rachel Roth/Raven (Teagan Croft), Kory Anders/Starfire (Anna Diop), and Gar Logan/Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), but they also met some other super-powered individuals during their time together. One of these characters was Bruce Wayne (aka Batman), although he never received a proper introduction.
This will change during season 2 after it was announced that Game of Thrones' Iain Glen was cast as Batman. The addition of Batman is a big one for Titans, which is also seeing major DC antihero and longtime Titans foe Deathstroke (Esai Morales) join the story. However, this has also made fans eager to see what exactly Titans' take on Robin's mentor will be like, as they had a falling out heading into the first season.
Filming is currently underway on season 2 of Titans and, thanks to a video posted on Twitter by Titans Brasil, we now have our first look at Glen playing Bruce Wayne. Fans have been expecting an older and grizzled version of Batman in Titans based on the casting of Glen, but what many may not have anticipated is that he would keep his natural blonde hair. As seen in this video, which features Bruce and Dick walking together (likely through Wayne Manor), the usual black hair of Bruce Wayne has been ditched.

The blonde look for Bruce Wayne may be somewhat unexpected, but it shouldn't really make a difference in Glen's portrayal. His ability to bring his personality and presence to life is much more important than the hair color. This set video may not give us much of any context as to whether or not Glen is pulling this off so far, but his past roles thankfully leave little reason to believe he won't be able to. Now that this video has surfaced, though, hopefully it won't be too long before an official image of Glen is released, with or without the Batsuit on, that is just as great as fans have imagined.
Beyond Bruce's look, the video is our first glimpse of him and Dick back together for season 2. According to the official description of Bruce for the new season, he is the one who seeks out his former sidekick and his new team to try helping them out. The conversation they are having could be them mending fences in order to work together once again, or this scene could already be past that stage and this is them actually figuring out what their first or next move is going to be. Either way, it is just great to see Thwaites and Glen filming together and is hopefully something that season 2 of Titans will have plenty of.
