This character is very familiar to the DC Universe.

Yesterday, fans learned Isai Morales will join the cast of Titans season 2 as the DC Comics assassin known as Deathstroke. Next season they will be faced with a familiar foe in Deathstroke.

While it can be argued that Ryan Reynolds' portrayal of Deadpool in two hit feature films (we're not counting his alleged appearance as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and neither should you) has helped the character transcend these shady origins, it can be even more effectively argued that Wade simply wouldn't exist without Slade.

Deathstroke has appeared in various media since his creation in 1980. He has been featured in countless animated and live action DC properties.

Deathstroke in Titans is described as: "Slade Wilson is known for being DC's deadliest assassin". The character was briefly played in Warner Bros.' "Justice League" by Joe Manganiello, who was expected to be the villain in Ben Affleck's now-scrapped Batman solo film. 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.

Morales will bring a steely presence to Titans' Deathstroke; it's no accident that the actor has often been cast as no-nonsense authority figures in series such as Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Chicago P.D., and NCIS: Los Angeles.

Back in January 2019, it was reported that DC was casting for Deathstroke, as well as Jericho and Ravager, for Titans.

Now, however, it appears as if we're about to get another iteration of the Terminator in season 2 of DC Universe's Titans. We'll keep an eye out for more news, and fill you in as it breaks.
