It was recently reported that Titans on the DC Universe had cast its Deathstroke aka Slade Wilson in Esai Morales. Well we now know who will play one of Slade’s children in Joseph Wilson aka Jericho.
Popular YouTube personality, Chella Man will take on the role. Man who is deaf, Genderqueer, Chinese, and Jewish, made a name for himself with his popular YouTube channel and has also done some modelling, but this will be his first major acting role.
The breakdown of this take on Joe WIlson is “mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact. This gentle natured yet proud hero has proven himself a formidable Titan.”
The casting announcement for Deathstroke’s daughter Rose Wilson/Ravager has yet to be made.
One of DC’s greatest villains, Deathstroke the Terminator aka Slade Wilson is expected to debut in the second season of successful DC streaming show, Titans in some capacity, and now it may be that the mercenary is not going to be tormenting the heroes by himself. .
Thanks to a report from That Hashtag Show, both Joseph Wilson, aka Jericho, and Rose Wilson, aka Ravager, will be joining their father when the DC Universe series returns for its sophomore run.
Late last year Geoff Johns teased a different take on Deathstroke for the show, and this report seems to back that tease up. This incarnation of the mercenary is described as “a military man with a family but whose demanding nature tore that family apart.” Rose, meanwhile, will be introduced as “a strong, yet damaged woman looking to put her past behind her and find a new family to replace the one that her father destroyed.”
In the comics, Ravager has been portrayed as both an antagonist and member of The Titans, so there’s a decent chance the show will follow suit in that regard. A version of Ravager was attempted in the second season of Arrow by Summer Glau. Apparently, mixed Latinx and mixed Asian actresses in the 18-21 age range are being looked at for the role.
A version of Joe Wilson was done during the 3rd annual Arrowverse crossover played by Liam Hall.
