SFX Magazine has revealed a brand-new look at Esai Morales’ Deathstroke from Titans Season 2, showing off his red-eye and scale mail armor.
Deathstroke is no stranger to the small screen, most notably portrayed by Manu Bennet in Arrow. Deathstroke was also voiced by Hellboy actor Ron Perlman in the animated Teen Titans series from the early 2000s. Esai Morales is the latest to bring Deathstroke into live-action. The first reveal of his costume was shown at the end of the trailer for Titans Season 2. Esai Morales’ Deathstroke is expected to play a large role in Titans Season 2. In the premiere, Esai Morales’ Slade Wilson was seen in retirement until he sees Curran Walters’ announcing the return of the Titans on TV.
Esai Morales’ Deathstroke look remains faithful to the comic books, but it still stands apart from the suits worn by Manu Bennet in Arrow and Joe Manganiello in Justice League. Esai Morales’ Deathstroke suit features scale mail armor and a red-eye. A new Titans Season 2 image from SFX Magazine shows it all off:
