In news that was first reported by Revenge of the Fans earlier this week (and not Deadline, who as per usual failed to acknowledge the original source), Chelsea T. Zhang has been cast in the role of Rose Wilson a.k.a. Ravager on DC Universe’s Titans.
Here’s the official description for the character; Titans Season 2 will likely be here later this year on DC Universe.
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.
We learned that Esai Morales would be playing Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke in Titans Season 2… now, we know who is playing his son Joseph Wilson a.k.a. Jericho!
Model, student, and YouTube personality Chella Man — who documented his journey of being “deaf, Genderqueer, Chinese and Jewish” on the video sharing website and has over 2.5 million views to his name — has landed the role.
Deadline broke the news — no, they don’t get a link because they don’t extend us the same luxury when we break anything. Here’s the official character description:
Son of the infamous DC villain Deathstroke (played by Esai Morales), Joseph Wilson is the Titan known as Jericho. 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.
Even though Arrow had what may be the definitive live-action Deathstroke in Manu Bennett, and there was a lot of promise in Joe Manganiello’s take on the character, Titans is going with a new actor in the role for Season 2.
Deadline revealed today that Esai Morales is the latest actor to wear the orange and black suit.
Here’s the official logline for the character:
Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin. 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.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced a digital release for Titans: The Complete First Season coming March 21; a Blu-ray release is expected to come at a later time.
With the release came news of a ton of extras! For those who didn’t want to shell out money for DC Universe, this is great news.
Here’s the press release with more details. Continue reading
Hello and welcome back to TitansTV!
Sadly, a big server crash got rid of most of our posts from mid-November on… but the site is back! Our Doom Patrol content, though, has migrated on to KSiteTV.
In any event, we have news – Superboy has been cast for Titans Season 2!
Sadly, it’s not Matthew Daddario who we were hoping for at TitansTV Tower, but instead, they got Australian actor Joshua Orpin.
Here’s how TV Line describes the character:
Conner Kent is described as an “angsty teenager of steel” searching for purpose and the truth about his past, after apparently being experimented on by the nefarious Cadmus. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family — as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.
This seems to be an adaptation of the version of Conner Kent which could be seen in Young Justice as well as the fantastic run by Geoff Johns on the Teen Titans comics in the early 2000s.
Titans Season 2 is in production for the DC Universe subscription service.
DC Universe is premiering Doom Patrol this coming Friday, February 15, and at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, we asked if the events of this series tie in to what we saw on Titans last year.
“There are elements that were present in the Titans ‘Doom Patrol’,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said, “but I think everyone is best suited coming into this Doom Patrol understanding that we have our own continuity and our own story. And if you come in with a fresh perspective, I think that’s the best way to view this Doom Patrol,” he said.
Doom Patrol will have April Bowlby reprising the role of Rita Farr from Titans; Matthew Bomer and Brendan Fraser continue to voice Negative Man and Robotman. Timothy Dalton takes over the role of The Chief. Follow @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter for more on the show!
Doom Patrol will premiere February 15 exclusively on the DC Universe service, and they have made descriptions available for the first two episodes!
Hopefully we’ll have some photos soon.
Here are those descriptions:
Episode 1: “Pilot”
In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away. However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).
Episode 2: “Donkey Patrol”
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.
