Slade Wilson will have some help when the second season of Titans rolls around. According to insider Lance Ausfresser in the Titans Facebook group, The Flash actor Demore Barnes will portray Billy Wintergreen in the DC Universe series.
Barnes is best known for his role as Hector Williams in CBS’ The Unit from 2006-2009. His other credits include Supernatural, Hannibal, and Hemlock Grove. The 43-year-old actor also appeared on The CW’s The Flash as the villain Tokamak, a candidate to take on the Firestorm Matrix following the death of Ronnie Raymond.
Created by George Pérez and Marv Wolfman, William Wintergreen was introduced in New Teen Titans #2 in 1980 as the butler of Slade. Although Wintergreen lacked Deathstroke’s superhuman attributes, he possessed far more combat experience and thus acted as a mentor for Wilson.
Billy Wintergreen made his live-action debut during the flashbacks of the first season of The CW’s Arrow, portrayed by stuntman Jeffrey C. Robinson. Acting as the first Deathstroke, Wintergreen was an ally of Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson before defecting to join Edward Fyers’ forces on Lian Yu. Wintergreen met his end when he was stabbed in the eye by Slade during a mission to rescue Oliver Queen.
