The series has added Esai Morales (How to Get Away with Murder) to its cast as Slade Wilson, AKA Deathstroke the Terminator, the superpowered mercenary who has long vexed the superhero team in the pages of DC comics.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard "Dick" Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand'r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield "Gar" Logan / Beast Boy.
Titans producer Geoff Johns previously teased that the series would introduce Slade Wilson at last year's New York Comic-Con. Next season they will be faced with a familiar foe in Deathstroke.
This character is very familiar to the DC Universe.
The fight against evil on DC Universe's Titans just got a lot deadlier. "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". For example, he was the main antagonist in the fan favorite Teen Titans animated series that aired on Cartoon Network. To The Movies. Many fans will also remember that Manu Bennett also played the character in The CW's Arrow and that Joe Manganiello also had a quick crack at the character in a cameo appearance in the 2017 Warner Bros. film Justice League. And then there's also Will Arnett's more comedic version in Teen Titans Go!
Morales has recently been in Netflix's Ozark, Amazon Prime's Mozart In The Jungle, HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and NBC's Chicago PD.
