Titans: Minka Kelly and Alan Ritchson Join New DC Series

at . Comments

Titans is adding some star power. 

The new series which will debut on DC's brand new streaming service next year has added two additions to the cast. 

The first of which is Friday Night Lights grad, Minka Kelly, who has been cast in the role of Dove

According to Deadline, Kelly will recur during Season 1 and the option is there for her to become a full-fledged series regular in a potential second season of the show. 

"Dove is described as “strategic, defensive and lithe.”

The second addition to the series is Alan Ritchson, who has joined as Hank Hall. Many of you will remember that name as the alter ego, Hawk. 

Dove and Hawk fight alongside each other, so we can expect Minka and Alan to share the screen several times during their recurring arcs.

Deadline also states that there is the potential for the duo to land a spin-off centering around their characters, so producers are obviously betting big on the couple striking a chord with viewers. 

Ritchson most recently appeared on the just-canceled Blood Drive, which was let go by Syfy earlier this week.

He is probably most well-known for his role as Aquaman on The CW's dearly departed Smallville.

The pair joins previously announced cast members, Brenton Thwaites (as Dick Grayson/Robin), Anna Diop (as Starfire) and Teagan Croft (as Raven). 

Titans has had a long and winding road to the screen. It was first announced to be in development in September 2014, but TNT opted against moving forward with the project in early 2016. 

Earlier this year, however, it was revealed that the show was being redeveloped for DC Comics' brand new streaming service.

It's unclear when, exactly, the show will debut, but 2018 seems like the most likely launch window.
