TITANS Star Minka Kelly Teases A Realistic Take On Hawk & Dove And Confirms Her Character Can't Fly

Following some revealing new info on the pilot episode of DC's Titans, actress Minka Kelly has provides some more details on how the DC Universe series will tackle the crime-fighting heroes, Hawk and Dove.

Thanks to some recently released details on the pilot episode, we learned the DC Universe series, Titans, would have a pretty dark tone and now it looks like they will be aiming for a more realistic take on some of the characters appearing on the show.

During an interview on the show On With Mario Lopez, Dove actress Minka Kelly discussed how the series would handle Dawn Granger and her crimefighting partner Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and their different fighting styles.


“I have a background in ballet, in gymnastics, and Jiu-Jitsu, so I’m pretty talented. So I can fight, and I have a super suit, and I have wings. I have 30-pound wings that I wear that — I can’t fly because they try — it’s realistic as possible. I can’t fly, because that would be not realistic, you know? I’m a real person. I have wings, but they’re my shield, they’re my weapon, so I take people under my wing and I protect them, and I slice people with them when I fight. The fighting — we all have our own individual specific style of fighting, and mine in particular is like a dancer.”

While it sounds like Titans might be avoiding the mystical elements of Hawk and Dove, Kelly did describe the duo as the avatars of Peace and War, so it’s possible they are just tweaking their abilities to fit the style of the show. Also, it sounds like the series will still highlight their contrasting attitudes and roles, especially through their fight scenes.

So, what do you folks make of this news? Are you excited for a realistic take on the characters? To share your thoughts, comment below.
