It seems as if the dangerous Wilson family is complete for TITANS on the DC Universe. Over the weekend it was announced that Chelsea T. Zhang from the Disney channel’s Andi Mack will be portraying Rose Wilson a.k.a Ravager, Slade Wilson (Deathstroke’s) daughter.
Now for those not familar with the comic lore of the character Wilson has been depicted as both an enemy to and member of The Titans, and based on the official character description, it sounds like this small-screen take on Ravager is going to follow a similarly duplicitous path.
“Daughter of the deadly assassin, Deathstroke, Rose Wilson was forced to undergo the same procedure that granted her father nearly superhuman abilities, becoming a weapon known as Ravager. Ever resentful, she seeks out the Titans not only for their protection but to get back at her father. Knowing how dangerous it is to be the offspring of their deadliest foe, the Titans take her in but that doesn’t necessarily mean they trust her.”
Zhang joins Chella Man as Jericho, and Esai Morales as Slade Wilson. Season 2 of Titans doesn’t have a premiere date, but filing is expected to begin next month.
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.
