Just after it was announced that the live-action Titans series would include Hawk and Dove, actor Alan Ritchson has been cast as the former.
Hawk a.k.a. Hank Hall is part of a crime fighting duo with Dove, yet to be cast.
In a recent report, Deadline revealed that Ritchson – who played Aquaman in Smallville, and Raphael in the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies – has joined the cast of the online DC series Titans. The report also stated that there are talks for there to eventually be a Hawk and Dove spin-off series.
In the comicbooks, Hawk and Dove are very much opposites. Hawk is a brute with a bad temper, and Dove is a softer vigilante, more strategic. It is said that their roles will be recurring, becoming regulars if there is to be a second season.
Titans will be produced by DC Comics’ Chief Creative Office Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Akiva Goldsman, and will air on Warner Bros’ new DC-branded digital platform that will launch in 2018.
No official date has been announced.
