Iain Glen Cast as Bruce Wayne in Titans Season 2

In the final episode of the first season of Titans, Batman went on a rampage, with Bruce Wayne only being seen in the shadows, in what was revealed to be a nightmare from Dick Grayson. Now, the second season of Titans is set to show the man himself, albeit a bit older than we’re used to. According to Deadline, Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) has been cast as an older take on Bruce Wayne.

“After decades of fighting crime as Batman, billionaire Bruce Wayne is just as driven to protect Gotham from evil as he was in his prime. Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.”

Chelsea Zhang Cast in Titans Season 2

It looks like Deathstroke’s family is continuing to grow on the second season of the DC Universe streaming series, Titans. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Chelsea Zhang (Andi Mack) has signed on to the role of Rose Wilson, aka Ravager, the daughter of Slade Wilson. Rose has quite the tumultuous relationship with her Father, and it’s likely that we’ll see that play out this coming season.

Titans season 2 looks poised to be something special with more and more faces from the comics and the history of the Titans coming into play. The first season was met with rave reviews, despite some interesting choices tonally.

Chella Man Cast as Jericho in Titans Season 2

After casting Deathstroke in the upcoming second season of the DC Universe streaming series, Titans, DC Entertainment has added YouTube star, Chella Man, as his son, Jericho. Chella Man is a deaf activist and transgender model making waves for his outspoken nature. This will be his acting debut, with Jericho’s character description below:

“Son of the infamous DC villain Deathstroke (played by Esai Morales), Joseph Wilson is the Titan known as Jericho. Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact. This gentle natured yet proud hero has proven himself a formidable Titan”

Titans Season 2 Adds Deathstroke

I’m not sure what it is about him, but despite the countless live-action versions of Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, that we’ve seen, it never gets old to see him added to a DC property. Titans season 2 is no different as DC Entertainment has announced that they’ve cast Esai Morales (NYPD Blue), as the world’s deadliest assassin.

“Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin,” reads the official press release detailing this take on the character. “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.”

Superboy Cast in Titans Season 2

Fans of the DC Universe streaming series Titans were treated to a pretty great post-credit stinger for the season finale, with the tease of Conner Kent, aka Superboy. Now, DC Entertainment has announced Superboy is coming to DC Universe’s Titans Season 2 and will be played by Australian actor Joshua Orpin (The Neon Spectrum).

Titans Superboy is described as “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 and finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.”

Ever since its reveal in The Silencer, Leviathan has been revealed to be pulling the strings in the darkest parts of the DC Universe for years. Operating in shadows that the heroes didn’t even know existed, and manipulating weaknesses in their abilities and personalities for years. Now, they’re slowly starting to take control over several books, and becoming a legitimate threat to the world without anyone being any wiser. A slow burn villain is most certainly the best one, and with Red Cloud working with Leviathan, things should get much more interesting.
DC
The countdown to Detective Comics #1000 has been absolutely phenomenal. A personal story that recalls the well-known origin of Batman in unique ways, as each and every person that Batman loves is picked apart, one by one. Pushing him further and further to the depths of his soul to grapple with his own humanity and past. This is storytelling at its best, and I know it should culminate into one hell of a thousandth issue.
HC
This is such a unique and fantastic story. A murder mystery with a real message at its heart, that humanizes DC’s heroes in a way that they have never really explored. The mental health and psychological issues that comes with being a hero, and dealing with the loss and failure, and much more. It’s dramatic, with a genuine conflict that could legitimately affect the DC Universe moving forward. Real stakes for the heroes. It’s a wonderful change of pace.
FL
This was a strangely paced issue. Flash and Fuerza defeated the Sage Force demons, and stopped Cauldron in Corto Maltese, meanwhile Commander Cold is making himself more comfortable in Central City, and their cases are starting to crossover with each other. It’s obvious that Trickster is behind the Sage Force weapon, but how does he know how to manipulate it? That’s definitely the big question. JLO
There are a lot of mysteries at play here, and I’m starting to get a little worried that they may not pull together in the most cohesive way. At the very least, we know now that Darkseid is most certainly playing at something, finding Blackfire, Starfire’s Sister, in the ruins of Tamarand with a plan to manipulate the troubled worlds of the Ghost Sector. That should at least make this series more interesting.
SIL
I really wasn’t expecting this turn of events, as Leviathan continues to one-up every single hero and villain across the DC Universe with a skilled manipulation that comics hasn’t seen in ages. It’s incredible. But, now I wonder… Did she kill honor? Are there plans to revive her with the Lazarus Pit? What is Talia’s goal, right now? Lots of questions, and the more Leviathan stretches into other books, the more excited I get for each issue of The Silencer.WW
A solid, albeit slightly uneventful issue for Wonder Woman. Of course the children that she rescued belonged to the Prime Minister, naturally drawing her to him. Aphrodite in the fray throws quite a few things into question, and I still say it’s the result of the Otherkind from Justice League Dark destroying the home of the Gods. Though, it could be something more.
TER
The Terrifics even get their own villain team! And it’s a crazy multiversal team! That’s awesome. Of course, the team would be miserable without each other at this point. The only friends they had were each other… now they’re forced to confront that fact. The Plastic Man interaction was certainly the most interesting, with Eel’s son, Luke, being introduced to the series, and his plastic abilities. I wonder if that will come into play in the near future?
