AceShowbiz - A slew of new characters are reportedly making their way to season 2 of "Titans". A new report suggests that the producers of the DC series are announcing a casting for Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke and his son Joe a.k.a. Jericho.
According to That Hashtag Show, the studio is looking for a Latinx, Asian or Caucasian male who is between 40 to 55 to portray the Terminator. Back in October, "Titans" executive producer Geoff Johns teased a new version of the character. On "Titans", Slade will be portrayed as a military man with a demanding nature that tears his family apart.
He is further described as a dedicated and patriotic solider who is forced into early retirement by the military. It is setting him on a path of vengeance on those who he believes betrayed him.
The site also claims that Jericho is not the only member of the Wilson family that is set to make an appearance on "Titans". Rose, also known Ravager, will join his brother and dad in the upcoming season. It is said that the studio is searching for a mixed Latinx or mixed Asian actress, 18-21, for the role.
Rose Wilson first appeared in 1992's "Deathstroke the Terminator #15". She is the daughter of Slade Wilson and Lillian Worth, a Cambodian clan princess Slade was sent to rescue. Lilian, however, hid the truth about her father to Rose for over the years until she joins Titans.
Rose has a complicated relationship with Titans with her sometimes positioning herself as an ally. Though in other times, she is seen as the antagonist of the team. It seems like Deathstroke's storyline in the sophomore season of "Titans" will put his family relationship front and center.
The new take of Rose will see her as a "strong but damaged" woman who is looking to put her past and the family her father destroyed behind her. It also remains to be seen if the series will keep the story of Rose being the illegitimate daughter of Slade and the Cambodian princess.
So far, there hasn't been information about how many episodes that will feature Deathstroke and his children.
Season 1 of "Titans" wrapped up on December 21, 2018. The streaming service has yet to reveal the premiere date of season 2 of the live-action series.
