Ferrer is also a cousin of George Clooney. He sent across a moving tribute to the media. It reads, “Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer. But not lost to his family. Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will.”

Miguel Ferrer was many great things, but to me, he'll always be Disney's most bad-ass villain. What a voice. R.I.P. pic.twitter.com/nM8Hk1zDqv

In what came as a gleam of hope for fans was the announcement that Ferrer will be voicing Deathstroke in Teen Titans. But it came as a rude shock when just hours after the announcement it was known that he has passed away. Fans can still hear him voicing Deathstroke as he is through with his work. His voice will still ring true in our hearts.
Sad news: Hours after my story on him voicing Deathstroke in TEEN TITANS, Miguel Ferrer succumbs to cancer. FYI: he had completed his work.
