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.
