Although we’ve only seen a few obscured glimpses of Bruce Wayne so far, it’s only a matter of time until Batman makes his presence felt in Titans, and Screen Rant believes it may have uncovered who’ll be donning the cape and cowl in the DC Universe live-action series.
The site bases its theory on the below shot from the third episode, where we saw Bruce – from behind – watching the newly-orphaned Dick Grayson and his case worker through a two-way mirror:
The site speculates that the actor in the shot is Into the Badlands’ Lewis Tan, who has recently been seen as Zhou Cheng in Marvel’s Iron Fist and as Shatterstar in Fox’s Deadpool 2.
As it happens, the British-born Tan had previously tweeted out a photo of him attending a meeting at DC, stating that his father had first come to Hollywood as an actor on Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie (he played a goon), and that things would soon come “full circle”.
At the time, the speculation pointed towards a possible role as Dick Grayson in Chris McKay’s Nightwing movie – with Tan then confirming that was one of the potential roles discussed during his DC meeting. So, is it possible that DC actually enlisted him to play the Caped Crusader in Titans? Well, it’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility, although El Mayimbe claims it’s not the case…
No, Lewis Tan is NOT playing Bruce Wayne in TITANS.

Hopefully we’ll find out one way or another soon enough when the Dark Knight debuts in the show. In the meantime, what do you make of Tan as a possible Batman? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
