Following the announcement that Brenton Thwaites would play Dick Grayson in the upcoming DC live-action series Titans, a more familiar name has just been cast as a new member of the team.
According to Deadline, Ritchson will play Hawk (aka Hank Hall), one-half of the crime-fighting, vigilante and romantic couple, Hawk and Dove. The role is recurring, with an option to become a regular in Season 2. Deadline also reported that their might be a potential ‘Hawk & Dove’ Spinoff in the future!
This is Ritchson’s official return to the WBTV/DC universe. He recurred as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman on the WB/CW series Smallville. Although he’s returning to the DC universe, a lot of people were campaigning for him to play Shazam in the DCEU.
Written by Goldsman, DC Entertainment’s Johns and Berlanti, Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and others.
