An unused symbol for Iain Glen’s Batman in Titans has been revealed.
The second season of Titans finally introduced fans to an older, more brutal Batman in the form of Iain Glen. One of the most interesting parts of Titans was seeing how they managed to showcase Batman in a capacity where he wasn’t fighting as much, serving as more of a reluctant leader or voice of reason. Beyond that, Titans also showcased the strained relationship that Iain Glen’s Batman and Brenton Thwaites’ Robin share. Seeing as there are so many live-action portrayals of Batman, it can get hard to have a sense of variation between their respective suits and symbols. Luckily, there are a bevy of artists who help create iconic Batman suits that help us differentiate between them.
For Titans, artist Rhys Yorke was commissioned to create his own rendition of the Batman symbol that would have been used for Iain Glen. Unfortunately, Titans didn’t go for his design. Lucky for us, Rhys Yorke took to Twitter to show off his unused Batman symbol that would have been used for Iain Glen.

The unused Batman symbol for Iain Glen is a perfect cross between The Dark Knight trilogy symbol and the already classic Batman symbol that has been used since the character’s inception. While we didn’t get a chance to see the Batman symbol for Iain Glen in Titans, it’s certainly special to see it out in the wild.

Here is the official synopsis for DC Universe’s Titans season two:
In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The DC Universe series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman.
Titans season two is now airing on DC Universe.
