Apologies for the lack of post last night. There was such little news, I kept putting it off and putting it off until I was asleep. So here’s what you need to know.
“Titans” Cast Nightwing – The “Titans” casing has been wonky all around. You have a 12 year old and a 30 year old both playing character supposedly around the same age physically, and now you can add a 28 year old boy wonder to the team of teens. Brenton Thwaites will apparently dawn the mask of Nightwing, presumably. All the casting does is mention him by Dick Grayson, but never by Nightwing. So it’s possible he’s Robin too. Who knows with this show.
“Titans” Adding More? – Say what you will about the casting, but they’re not done yet. Apparently the folks making “Titans” are looking at adding Hawk and Dove, the dynamic sibling pairing. Apparently, Alan Richson and Rebecca Rittenhouse are set to play Hawk and Dove respectively. For some, you might remember Ritchson as he played Aquaman on “Smallville”.
‘Legends’ Cast Darhk’s Daughter – Oh boy, Ray Palmer is in for a fun trip. Eleanor, the daughter of Damian Darhk is set to pop into the show in it’s third season, and will apparently be a subject of Palmer’s desires. The irony is, Eleanor will be played by Courtney Ford, who is the wife of Palmer’s actor, Brandon Routh. The two have appeared in various forms of media over the years, but this will be the first high profile series they work together. And to clarify, there was no mention if this is the same daughter from “Arrow” season four, as Nora, could be some nickname for Eleanor.
Quick Hits – Melissa Benoist will voice Overgirl in the “Freedom Fighters: The Ray” series. Stephen King s claims that he was not prepared for how good “IT” was. Thomas Q. Jones to return to his role of Comanche for season two of “Luke Cage”. New ‘Arrowverse’ sizzle reel released.
