First Look Photo: Live-Action Hawk and Dove From DC’s Titans!

Warner Bros. Television has released a first-look photo at two more characters from the upcoming Titans live-action series for the DC Comics streaming service!

This time the spotlight falls on Hawk (Hank Hall, as played by Alan Ritchson) and Dove (Dawn Granger, as played by Minka Kelly), with suits designed by Laura Jean Shannon (Black Lightning, Iron Man, The Jungle Book).

Titans comes from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service will be operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks.

Take a look at the photo of the two actors in costume below. For Ritchson, that’s certainly an upgrade from his Aquaman look from Smallville, right?

From executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, TITANS is an all-new live-action drama series that follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. TITANS is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

Harley Quinn To Appear On Titans (Go With It)

And the official victor for most clickbait-y of clickbait headlines goes to… that one up above.

Even if it’s only true on a technicality.

Comic Con News has uncovered evidence that points to the notion that Twin Peaks’ Sherilyn Fenn has signed on for an undisclosed role in the upcoming Titans show for the DC Comics streaming service. The site noted that Fenn had retweeted the first photo of Brenton Thwaites as Robin;  more telling is that the actress, who was recently filming in Toronto, tweeted a photo of herself that appears to be with Teagan Croft (Raven) on Wednesday. There was also another photo of the two on Instagram.

Perhaps she is playing Raven’s mom? And is Raven’s mother a nurse, as Fenn has posted some pictures in scrubs recently?

(Also, sadly, if that is Croft, she still has blonde hair – we really hoped they’d darken it for the show.)

So what does this have to do with Harley Quinn?

Fenn played Dr. Harleen Quinzel in the pilot episode of the WB’s Birds of Prey, becoming more and more manic like the “Harley” we all know and love as the pilot went on. Sadly, Fenn didn’t stay with the project as it went to series, so she was replaced by Mia Sara.

So… no, Harley Quinn is not going to be on Titans… yet… but at least an actress that played her seems to be coming on.

No confirmation has come yet from the studio, but if this pans out, it’s very exciting news indeed!

Donna Troy (Wonder Girl) May Be Coming To Titans

DC’s upcoming Titans series for their still unnamed streaming service may be getting a Wonder-ful addition.

That Hashtag Show has gotten a hold of yet another casting breakdown, and this one is for a character that… sounds very much like a certain Titans mainstay — specifically, Donna Troy, a.k.a. Wonder Girl.

Here’s the breakdown:

[RUTH GIBBS] Female, 20s, Caucasian or Latina or Middle Eastern, or ethnically ambiguous. Confident and kick ass. Educated. RECURRING GUEST STAR THIS SEASON WITH AN OPTION FOR SERIES REGULAR NEXT SEASON.

“Ruth Gibbs” is clearly an alias, as many other casting notices for this series have had. The notion that there’s an option to become a series regular tells us that this is an important figure in Titans lore — and there are very few as important as Donna, at least when it comes to characters not already announced for the show and/or appearing in movies or the Arrowverse.

Titans will launch with the DC Comics streaming service in 2018.

Titans First Look Photo: Brenton Thwaites as Robin!

Warner Bros. has released their first official photo of Brenton Thwaites in costume as Dick Grayson (Robin) from their upcoming DC Comics-based series Titans which is coming from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

The Robin super suit was designed by renowned costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose credits include Black Lightning, Iron Man and The Jungle Book, among others.

Titans is set to debut in 2018 on the DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service, operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks.

Ryan Potter Is Titans’ Beast Boy – And He Is Green!

It was just a few days ago that, in a conversation, TitansTV’s Craig Byrne mentioned to a friend that Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) would be a great choice for Beast Boy…. well, guess what: It’s happening.

Deadline is reporting that Potter has landed that last big role in the DC streaming service Titans series… and revealing that his skin and hair will be green! Here’s how the TV version of the character is described:

As a child, Potter’s Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects.  Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.

Ryan Potter joins Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, and Teagan Croft in this group of Titans;  Lindsey Gort is Detective Amy Rohrbach, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will be appearing as Hawk and Dove. It is assumed that the show will premiere 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
