Last month, Brenton Thwaites teases his very first Robin’s look from the DC’s Titans and now DC Entertainment’s Steve Wilkie shared DC comics very popular superhero pair, Hawk & Dove. The live action pair will be suiting up by Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly. Here take a look at Hawk & Dove’s first look at below:
Their suits designed by renowned costumes designer Laura Jean Shannon who also responsible for Robin’s brilliant costume design.
After the huge success of CW’s the Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, DC Entertainment decided to take a one step ahead by introducing DC’s one of the iconic vigilante’s solo series.
If you take a close look at Hawk’s outfit, you will notice it is unmistakably based on Steve Ditko’s original design. Steve along with Steve Skeates were the creators of ‘The Hawk and the Dove‘ in 1968. As we know, Hawk’s character will be played by Alan Ritchson; the actor already made his appearance in Smallville as Aquaman. If we talk about Minka Kelly’s past work, she is well known for her best appearance on Almost Human and Friday Night Lights. Hank Hell (Hawk) and Dawn Granger (Dove) will be seen in a GF-BF relationship.
Who are Hawk and Dove???
Made the first appearance in Showcase #75, Hawk & Dove are the empowered superheroes by the Lords of Order and Chaos who known to be crime fighters. If you saw the DC’s animated Justice League Unlimited TV series, you will know Hawk representing war and Dove representing peace which helps to form a balance between them.
When they debuted first in June 1968, they were the part of Silver Age of Comic Books, but over the years the duo’s incarnations existed in multiple DC comic’s issues and mini-series. After that, they meant to be for recurring roles in the various titular heroes’ series such as Teen Titans, Birds of Prey and Brightest Day.
When DC rebooted their comics to The new 52, Hawk and Dove’s characters changed but still working as a superhero in Washington DC. If I talk about their powers, Hawk possesses the ability called as danger sense danger transformation and same goes with Dawn. When she’s in a presence of danger, she can transform into Dove by calling out the word ‘Dove’.
The series is written & produced by DC Entertainment’s Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Akiva Goldsman and Sarah Schechter.
Titans will air in 2018 on the DC-Branded direct to consumer digital service which is operated by Warner Bros. Digital Network.
