Deadline is reporting that Alan Ritchson, who’s been lobbying for the role of Shazam is now cast as Hawk on Titans, one of the two exclusive shows for the untitled DC Streaming Service coming in 2018.
Ritchson will play Hawk (aka Hank Hall), one-half of the crime-fighting, vigilante and romantic couple of Hawk and Dove. The perfect example of opposites attract, Hawk is an aggressive, offensive bruiser while Dove is strategic, defensive and lithe. The role is recurring, with an option to become a regular in Season 2. I hear the producers also are exploring a potential Hawk and Dove spinoff series down the road.
Alan Ritchson is no stranger to the DC Universe, he played Arthur Curry on Smallville. Coincidently enough he shared the screen with Justin Hartley, who played Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on Smallville, but also played Arthur Curry on the Aquaman pilot called Mercy Reef.
Ritchson has since expressed his excitement on Twitter:
