Rumors about Tan playing Bruce Wayne on Titans arose as a result of some posts of his social media presence teasing a DC role. Given that he’s a common fan-favorite choice to play numerous characters from both Marvel and DC, some have speculated that he would play Bruce Wayne.
In regards to the significance of Batman in the universe established by Titans, Robin actor Brenton Thwaites previously explained his character’s motives in abandoning the Caped Crusader:
“Batman is a killer and Robin wants to get away from that. The idea is that he doesn’t want to become a killer himself. And although these guys that he’s fighting are bad and they deserve, you know, they deserve what he’s dishing out, it seems, he believes that when you kill someone you crossed the line and you become almost as bad as them, so it’s pretty clear in the series that he was with Batman, Batman crossed the line and he was teaching me to do the same thing, and he’s trying to break away from that.”
