According to a Rochester/Finger Lakes commission cast listing in Facebook, the son of DC villain Deathstroke will be a part of Titans season 2.
After the first season of Titans ended we were, quite frankly, left worried about the young heroes. Trigon made its appearance in the last episode which featured a fever dream from Dick Greyson as he took Batman down once and for all. All these events left us guessing if the Titans could ever beat Trigon and save Earth from destruction. It seems that the team will need all the help they can get, aside from what Hawk and Dove can do for them and this new listing may give us a hint as to where this help might be coming from.
A cast listing recently found on Facebook may give us the clue as to who is coming in the second season of Titans. It’s none other than Deathstroke/Slade Wilson’s son, Jericho. The listing looks for a male of 21 to 24 years old, Asian or Latino, that has a hearing disability:
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.
For those who don’t know who he is, Jericho, born as Joseph William Wilson, is the son of Slade Wilson and Adeline Kane Wilson in the comics. Jericho is most famous for his participation in the Judas Contract storyline where Deathstroke is hired to kill the Teen Titans. Jericho eventually teams up with Robin and saves the other members of the team. He would also join the team and develop a relationship with Raven soon after that.
What do you think of Jericho’s inclusion in Titans? Comment below!
Here’s the synopsis for Titans:

Here’s What We Learned On The Set Of DC’s ‘Shazam!’ Movie
Shazam! I’m writing that because I’ve had to use all the powers of an ancient Egyptian wizard to contain my excitement and prevent me from telling you the things I’m about to tell you at this moment. Back in April, I got the invitation of a lifetime. Warner Brothers, New Line and DC began sending out invitations to the set of the Shazam! movie.
I was lucky enough to be one of the few journalists invited to the set of Shazam! and I have to say I saw some pretty fantastical things. This was Heroic Hollywood’s second set visit and my first time ever visiting a movie set, so as a movie fan, I was excited, and as a DC Comics fan, I was screaming internally.
This was my first time visiting Toronto and it came with such a cool stipulation. The other journalists and I arrived in Toronto on Wednesday, April 17, 2018. We got to enjoy the beautiful city on our first night there and then on Thursday morning, we were up bright and early to visit the set of the film.
It was cold day in Toronto and me and a bunch of other journalists made our way to Pinewood Studios to visit the set of the Shazam! movie. We were directed into this office where they showed us this terrific sizzle reel and told us almost everything about the movie. Now that the embargo has officially lifted, I can finally tell you almost everything we learned on set of Shazam.
There’s a bunch of cool things about Shazam! that you guys have yet to discover and I’m excited to dissect it for you in the following slideshow. Hit next as I reveal almost everything about my Heroic mission to the Shazam! set.
