DC Universe has found their main villain for Titans Season 2. Deadline reports that Ozark star Esai Morales has been cast as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke.
Esai Morales, of Puerto Rican descent, will act as the main antagonist in a grounded version of the classic comic character. The producers of the show released a bio that describes their specific version of Deathstroke. Check it out:
“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 second season is set to begin production on April 2nd, for a possible late 2019 release. It’s likely though we’ll see the new episodes next year instead, time will tell. After the well-reviewed first season dropped on the DC Universe last year, fans have been waiting on official updates to no end. Hopefully, more information will be made available sooner rather than later and we will provide it as soon they arrive.
