Esai Morales has been cast as Deathstoke for DC Universe's second season of Titans, first reported by Deadline.

"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," reads the DC Universe description of the character in Titans. "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."

Back in January 2019, it was reported that DC was casting for Deathstroke, as well as Jericho and Ravager, for Titans.

Morales is a veteran actor, having appeared in everything from La Bamba to Fast Food Nation, and has a major role in the recent Superfly film.

DC Universe has not set a release date for Titans' second season.
