Esai Morales has been cast as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke in season 2 of DC Universe’s Titans. Morales is recently known for his work on NYPD Blue and Ozark. His presence will be a welcome addition.
For me one of the glaring problems with the 1st season of Titans was the lack of a cool villain. With Deathstroke in place, season 2 is already looking up.
Live-action versions of the character were seen in the CW show Arrow and briefly in the disappointing Justice League film. While Joe Manganiello after credit scene was forgettable (no fault of Joe’s), Manu Bennett’s portrayal of Slade Wilson in Arrow was fantastic IMO and was one of the show’s many strengths the 1st two seasons.
Season 2 of Titans will also feature Superboy, played by Australian newcomer Joshua Orpin.
