October 7th, 2019 by Marc Comments

CW Seed, the CW’s online content site, has dropped a trailer for their Deathstroke: Knights & Demons series.

The animated series will join Vixen and Freedom Fighters: The Ray as being based on and set in the Arrowverse only in here Deathroke will not be played by Manu Bennett as in the live-action shows but will rather be voiced by Michael Chiklis.

This looks promising and between this and Titans, Deathstroke really is the flavour of the month, isn’t he?

Check it out below and let me know your thoughts.

Press release:

CW Seed, The CW’s free, ad-supported digital network, announced today the voice cast of its new animated series, DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS. The twelve-episode original series is set to debut in the first quarter of 2020.

DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS stars Primetime Emmy Award winner Michael Chiklis (“The Shield,” “Gotham”) as the titular voice of Slade/Deathstroke, Sasha Alexander (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Rizzoli & Isles”) as Addie, Chris Jai Alex (“Thundercats Roar”) as Jackal and Faye Mata (“Lego Friends: Girls On A Mission”) as Rose, Griffin Puatu as Jericho, Asher Bishop as Young Joseph, Colin Salmon as Wintergreen, Delbert Hunt as Tiger, Panta Mosleh as Lady Shiva, Imari Williams as President/Hive Pilot, Minae Noji as Secretary of State, Noshir Dalal as Kapoor and Castulo Guerra as General Suarez.

DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS follows in the tradition of CW Seed’s animated series VIXEN and FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY. Ten years ago, Slade Wilson—aka the super-assassin called Deathstroke—made a tragic mistake and his wife and son paid a terrible price. Now, a decade later, Wilson’s family is threatened once again by the murderous Jackal and the terrorists of H.IV.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past—or will his family pay the ultimate price?

Written by J.M. DeMatteis (CW Seed’s “Constantine: City of Demons”) and directed by Sung Jin Ahn (“Niko and the Sword of Light”), DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS is an animated DC series from Blue Ribbon Content and executive produced by Sam Register (“DC Super Hero Girls,” “Mike Tyson Mysteries”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”) and Sarah Schechter (“Supergirl,” “Blindspot”).

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….
