A Detective Friend Of Nightwing’s May Be Coming To Titans

When news came last night that Hawk and Dove were coming to this iteration of Titans, it wouldn’t have been news to fans of That Hashtag Show, who broke that information way back on August 31… including the notion that DC was interested in Alan Ritchson for the role.

There was one character they mentioned, however, who has not yet been an announced part of the show, but if their track record is any indication, we’ll have confirmation soon.

That role is Detective Amy Rohrbach, a character from Chuck Dixon’s acclaimed run of Nightwing comics and one of the few good cops in Bludhaven. Here’s the character breakdown courtesy of that site:

DET. AMY ROHRBACH: Supporting Female (25-35) [OPEN] She is the detective alongside Dick Grayson who knows more than she lets on. Pretty, has tattoos.

Titans Adds Hawk & Dove; Smallville’s Aquaman Is Hawk

Proving the theory that the same dozen actors keep playing comic book roles, Alan Ritchson is now the second Aquaman to take on a second superheroic role as he has joined the cast of Titans in a recurring role as Hawk of Hawk & Dove fame.

Ritchson played Aquaman in the highly-rated Smallville episode “Aqua” and subsequently made some return appearances in later seasons of the show.

A decade ago, TV’s second Aquaman, Justin Hartley, became TV’s first Green Arrow after his Aquaman TV pilot went nowhere. The two later teamed up in more than one episode of Smallville. Also interesting to note is that Ritchson’s Aquaman’s partner “Mera,” Elena Satine, is also soon returning to the superhero world on FOX’s The Gifted.

Joining Ritchson’s Hawk is Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger a.k.a. Dove. Dove is described as “strategic, defensive and lithe” — the opposite of Hawk’s “aggressive, offensive bruiser.”

Minka Kelly also has a Smallville connection, having starred in the Charlie’s Angels update that was created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar in 2011.

Hawk & Dove will be recurring on Titans Season 1 with the potential of becoming season regulars in Season 2 and/or a possible Hawk & Dovespinoff series down the road.

Deadline broke this news today. Titans is coming to DC’s still-untitled streaming service next year.

Brenton Thwaites Is Dick Grayson In Titans

Fans of Titans will now know what the show’s Dick looks like in live-action.

Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) has landed the role of Dick Grayson, no longer Robin, and it sounds like he’s not yet Nightwing. Here’s how Deadline describes the show’s take on the character:

Comic book fans know Dick Grayson as Batman’s famous sidekick, Robin. After Dick’s parents were murdered during their high-flying circus act, Bruce Wayne became Dick’s legal guardian and trained him to fight crime beside him. But after years as part of the Dynamic Duo, Dick struggled to find his place outside the Dark Knight’s shadow. Finally striking out as his own man, he emerges as a leader, mentor, and father figure to his new family, the Titans.

“Dick Grayson is one of the most important and iconic heroes in the DC universe, and it wasn’t easy to find him but we have,” DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns said in a statement. “Brenton has the emotional depth, heart, danger and physical presence of Batman’s former protege and the Titans’ future leader. We’re extremely lucky he’s chosen to bring his talents to this project and this character.”

Titans will be hitting the DC digital streaming service in 2018.

Titans Live-Action Series: Character Breakdowns Surface

That Hashtag Show apparently has casting breakdowns for the four leads of the upcoming Titans show for DC’s streaming service. Of course, the character breakdowns have fake names, but we all know who they are. (If you don’t, John Crossland = Dick Grayson, Sarah = Raven, Casey = Starfire, Jax = Beast Boy).

Already this is sounding so much better than the first iteration of the project…

[John Crossland] Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD

[SARAH] Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends. Haunted by a dark force inside her, Sarah experiences violent episodes that she cannot understand or control. She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR

[Casey] Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR

[JAX] Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR

Geoff Johns Is Writing Some Titans Today

Fresh off the recent big news that Titans is back on as a thing that will be happening, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns Tweeted this morning that he’s spending his Friday writing some Titans.

“Enjoying an early Friday writing,” DC’s Chief Creative Officer posted.

Johns is arguably the best writer to have handled the Titans since the glory days of Marv Wolfman, George Perez, and Wolfman’s other collaborators, so this is very cool news to see.

In another Tweet about the Titans TV project being back on, Johns included the hashtag #BeastBoy. Hmm… Interestingly, we heard that Beast Boy was not among the plans when the show was at TNT, so this is cool.
