Titans star Alan Ritchson says a Hawk and Dove spinoff series has been discussed for the DC Universe streaming service.
Hawk and Dove have appeared in two episodes so far in Titans‘ first season and have already become fan favorites within the DC fan community. Last week’s episode told the origin story of the two heroes and continued to expand the DC universe. The streaming service is launching its first Titans spinoff series with Doom Patrol in 2019 and ComicBook.com asked Ritchson if Hawk and Dove could be next:
“I don’t think it’s out of the question. The idea has definitely been discussed on numerous occasions, and Minka and I are huge fans of the idea because we want to get to know these characters even better and see more of their day-to-day life.”
Ritchson has become a noted critic of Avengers: Infinity War and continued to express his love for the grounded approach Titans is bringing to the genre with the series exploring the everyday life of a superhero:
“I think the beauty of Titans — and you get even more of this, I feel, with Hawk and Dove — is this voyeuristic kind of fly-on-the-wall perspective of a day in the life of a superhero. You get a glimpse behind the curtain. We get to go inside their dingy apartment and see how they pay the bills and grocery shop. There’s something really human about that kind of superhero show that I’m a huge fan of. I think it gives us the opportunity to tell a superhero story in a way that’s never been done before and that’s exciting to me. And I think there’s a lot of story to explore. A lot of history, and I’m hungry for that. I really hope that happens.”
