Alan Ritchson is set to join DC's live-action series TItan's as Hawk. The show is slated to premiere in 2018 as part of the inaugural slate of a new DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service.
Ritchson will play Hawk, aka Hank Hall, one half of the crime-fighting, romantic couple of Hawk and Dove. The role is recurring, with an option to become a regular in Season 2. Deadline reports that the producers also are exploring a potential Hawk and Dove spinoff series down the road.
The show is written by Akiva Goldsman, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns and Greg 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.
You might remember Ritchson recurred as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman on the long-running WB/CW drama series Smallville.
