Esai Morales Joins Cast Of Titans Season 2 As Deathstroke

Looks like the Titans will be squaring off against Deathstroke at some point in their second season.

The DC Universe streaming service’s original series has cast Esai Morales (Ozark) to play Slade Wilson.

Titans producers offered the following description of the show’s incarnation of Deathstroke:

Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin. While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge. To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.

The Deathstroke character has popped up in both DC TV & DC Films before. He was on multiple seasons of CW’s Arrow where he was played by Manu Bennett. He also appeared in the Justice League film where he was played by Joe Manganiello.
