The report from SBM states that Minka Kelly’s Dawn Granger/Dove would not be the only iteration of the character to appear on the series. The CW‘s Life Sentence star Elliot Knight will be appearing in several flashbacks throughout the series as Donald “Don” Hall, the original Dove. Don Hall is the brother of Hank Hall, which will play a major role in the Hawk and Dove storyline in the series. With Don appearing only in flashbacks, there is room for speculation that he has likely been killed or retired before the events of Titans where Minka Kelly’s Dawn Granger will pick up the mantle.
Knight’s numerous other television appearances include ABC’s Once Upon A Time, How To Get Away With Murder, and CBS’ American Gothic. His most recent role was in Life Sentence, which was recently cancelled after 13 episodes.
Created by Steve Skeates and Steve Ditko, the Don Hall version of Dove is a classic character from the DC library, who first appeared in Showcase #75 in 1968. Him and sibling Hank Hall formed the original Hawk and Dove duo until he was killed during the events of Crisis On Infinite Earths in 1986. After his passing, Dawn Granger would pick up the mantle in Hawk and Dove Vol. 2 #1 two years later.
