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.
The extremely talented BossLogic has shared some artwork on Twitter, depicting Alan Ritchson in a costume as Hawk.
The costume on Titans probably won’t match this, but if we’re going for comics-accurate, you can’t do much better than this. Enjoy! You can find BossLogic’s Twitter feed here.
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.
