We’re going to move past the part where we brag about our prediction being right (though please feel free to remind yourselves of just how prophet-like we can be sometimes here), and head right to the part where we let you know that Chelsea T. Zhang (Disney Channel’s Andi Mack) is set to join DC Universe‘s live-action Titans series as Rose Wilson aka the Ravager. Joining her for the second season are castmates/on-screen family members Esai Morales (Ozark) as villain/anti-hero assassin Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke; and YouTube influencer and speaker-activist Chella Man in the recurring role of Joseph Wilson aka Jericho.
Daughter of the deadly assassin Deathstroke, Zhang’s 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.”
Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Man’s Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact.
Morales’ 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.
Morales’ Wilson/Deathstroke isn’t the only addition to the upcoming season. Orpin’s Conner Kent/Superboy is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. 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.
DC Universe’s Titans stars Brenton Thwaites (Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin), Anna Diop (Koriand’r / Kory Anders / Starfire), Teagan Croft (Rachel Roth / Raven), and Ryan Potter (Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy); as well as recently- announced cast member Joshua Orpin (Conner Kent / Superboy).
