Titans season two is on the way and now Alan Ritchson has shared a new look at his character Hawk, and Minka Kelly’s character Dove.
Titans debuted on the DC Universe streaming service last year, acting as the service’s first original series. Titans featured an incredible cast of heroes, including a twist on the iconic duo Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Dove (Minka Kelly). Both Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will return as Hawk and Dove in Titans season two, which is currently in production.
Alan Ritchson took to Instagram to share a new behind-the-scenes look at him and Minka Kelly’s character, though not with their beloved costumes. Check out the latest peek at Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly’s dynamic duo Hawk and Dove in Titans season two below.
Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly’s Hawk and Dove were key roles in Titans season one but they never officially became members of the Titans team. Now that Hawk and Dove will soar back into the fight in Titans season two, that could finally change.
In the comics, Hawk and Dove were brothers, Hank and Don Hall. Although the casting of Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as a vigilante couple is a departure from the books, Titans did pay homage to the original Hawk and Dove.
In Titans, before Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly’s characters met, the Hall brothers are known as a duo of amateur heroes. Due to a terrible tragedy, the duo’s roster changed and brought in Minka Kelly as the new Dove.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Hawk and Dove’s return in Titans season two as soon as more information becomes available.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
