DC Universe’s Titans Possibly Adding Jericho To Season 2

Man how time flys, we have already completed the first season of DC Universe’s Titans and have approached the mid-season finale of Young Justice: Outsiders and are close to the premiere of their next live action series Doom Patrol. The end of the first season of Titans left us on a with a huge cliff hanger that won’t be resolved until the second season as well as the tease of a couple of new characters. Speaking of new characters, it looks like we can expect some other fan favorites to also show up in the next season of Titans.

According to a casting description on the Rochester/Finger Lakes Film Commission’s Facebook page, they are looking for a deaf or hard of hearing actor to appear in the second season of Titans. Although the casting call does not specifically mention the comic name, it’s widely speculated that it’s referring to Joe Wilson aka Jericho.

Here is the description:
“LOOKING FOR DEAF ACTORS! “I’m the Casting Associate on season 2 of the DC superhero series TITANS, and we recently released the below breakdown. Because of the context of the role, we would really like to look for actors who are deaf or hard of hearing, and are fluent in ASL. If you know of any current or former students who might fit the below description, please send them my way, or have them send their contact/rep info to my email. Thanks!

ROLE: Male, 21-24, Mixed Latino or Mixed Asian. As a young boy, Max was a kind-hearted soul who never measured up to the expectations of his domineering military father. Bullied by his peers, he retreated even further inward. He’s a misfit who’s always longed for acceptance and love, but never found it, always suffering betrayal by those he dared to believe in most. As a result, he’s grown into a young man who now longs to inflict pain on all those who have caused him pain… 7/13 SERIES REGULAR… PLEASE ALSO SUBMIT ACTORS WHO ARE DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING, AND NOTE ANY ACTORS WHO ARE FLUENT IN ASL.”

All the clues point to Jericho as the description references a “domineering military father” seem to point to his father Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke as well as the fact that they are looking for a deaf or hard of hearing actor which would be consistent with Jericho as he is left mute by a series of traumatic events in his life. Hopefully this means the addition of him and his father, who are important character in the Titans mythology.

In comic books, Joseph Wilson aka Jericho is the son of Slade Wilson and Adeline Kane. He has the power to control people’s body when he looks in their eyes. He was a long time member of the Teen Titans, although he has also found himself against them. He was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez and first appeared in DC Comics’ Tales of the Teen Titans #43 in June of 1984. His character makes a brief appearance in the sixth season of The CW’s Arrow and is played by William Franklyn-Miller and Liam Hall.

Based on the characters we have seen so far, he does fit the mold of misfit teenagers in Titans. If this report turns out to be Jericho, would you be excited to see him in the next season of Titans? Let us know in the comment section below!

DC Universe’s Titans first season is available now in their streaming service.
