TITANS Season 2 Adds Esai Morales As The Villainous Slade Wilson/Deathstroke

We've known for a while now that Deathstroke is coming to Titans season two, and the DC Universe series has now added Esai Morales as the iconic DC Comics villain. Hit the jump for additional details...

The first season of Titans ended on something of a weird cliffhanger, but things are already looking up for the DC Universe series as it's been revealed today that Esai Morales has been cast as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. Many fans were disappointed that the villain wasn't used in that initial batch of episodes so it will be fun to see him go head to head with Robin (Nightwing?) and company. 

"Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin," reads the official press release detailing this take on the character. "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."
Sounds pretty much perfect, right?

Morales has a number of credits to his name, including Bad Boys, The Wall of Mexico, Caprica, and Criminal Minds. This is arguably his biggest role to date and he certainly looks the part. Whether or not he'll be able to live up to what Manu Bennett did in Arrow remains to be seen, as he provided what some fans have described as the definitive take on this villain.
