Deathstroke, Ravager and Batgirl heading to Titans Season PLUS Doom Patrol teasers

January 28th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like Season 2 of Titans is to get a pretty awesome bad guy according to The Hashtag Show.

In the original Teen Titans comics Deathstroke/Slade Wilson was their arch-nemesis, although he eventually became more linked to the Batman mythos, but it seems titans is to set the record straight again as he’s coming to Season 2.

and he’ll be bringing his illegitimate daughter Rose Wilson AKA Raveger with him: “The Deathstroke casting call is for Latinx, Asian or Caucasian men between the ages of 40 and 55, whereas Rose Wilson should be a mixed Latinx or mixed Asian actress between the age of 18 and 22.”

Slade will be a little different this time out: “This new version of Slade Wilson is quite a bit different from the one we’ve come to know in the comics. In this universe, Slade Wilson will be portrayed as a military man with a family but whose demanding nature tore that family apart. Described as a dedicated and patriotic solider, Slade is forced into early retirement by the military, setting him on a path of vengeance on those who he believes betrayed him. Comic book fans know of Wilson’s long history with the Titans, but we’ll see how much of that Johns and crew follow on the show.”

In the Arrowverse Manu Bennett plays Slade/Deathstroke and we’d kill to see him play him here too, linking the worlds, but we someone doubt that’s likely to happen.

Brenton Thwaites who plays Robin/Dick Grayson in Titans posted a rather, em, Adult joke on his Instagram (below) and apart form it being funny and inappropriate, it may well be teasing Batgirl/Barbera Gordon coming to the show next season:

This makes sense because, well, Batgirl is a big part of the Batfamily established in Titans already, but on top of that, we have been hearing rumours of a Batgirl series set for DC Universe for a while now (here) so we could see her appearing in the show with the intention of giving her a spinoff ala Doom Patrol (more on them below).

What do you all think?

Oh, while you’re here, how about a close look at the Batman suit from the end of Titans? It’s not quite what we expected…

In related news, we’re starting get teasers for the upcoming Doom Patrol series on DC Universe – we’ve put them here for your enjoyment.

Meet Robotman, Crazy Jane, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Cyborg, and The Chief premiering February 15, only on DC Universe.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
