How time flies, it seems like just yesterday we were seeing the premiere of Titans on DC Universe’s streaming service. Now with the first season of that series complete, the first half of Young Justice: Outsiders complete and five episodes into Doom Patrol, we are getting casting news about Titans second season.
A few days ago we got the news that Esai Morales was going to join Titans as the main antagonist Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke. Today via TheWrap we have learned that the recurring role of his son Joseph Wilson aka Jericho will be played by Chella Man. He made himself popular via his YouTube channel and has done some modeling but this will be his first major acting role. He is deaf and a transgender activist.
Here is the official description for Jericho:
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.
Just like Deathstroke, Jericho was created by Marv Wolfman and Geroge Perez and first appeared in DC Comics in Tales of the Teen Titans #43 in 1984. It’s looking like the Wilson family is coming together, now we just need to wait and see who is cast as Ravager. With characters like these as well as Superboy being added to the series, it will make for an exciting second season.
What do you think of Chella Man taking on the role of Jericho? Let us know in the comment section below!
The first season of Titans can be streamed on the DC Universe streaming service.
