DCTV News Bits: TITANS Casts Dove (Again), Bane’s Dad Comes to GOTHAM, and ARROW Gets Gritty

Today we’ve got some news on Titans casting, Gotham using yet another Batman villain, and Arrow doing even more crazy stunts. There’s a lot to unpack so let’s get into it.

According to our friends at Super Bro Movies, Elliot Knight (Life Sentence) has been cast as Don Hall on Titans. Knight will appear in flashbacks as the original Dove. Don Hall and Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson) are brothers and the original Hawk and Dove. It’ll be interesting to see how they use the flashbacks to flesh out Ritchson’s character. Minka Kelly is playing the present day Dove. Hopefully we get to see the backstory behind all of this.

Gotham is going all out for its final season. That Hashtag Show is reporting that Bane’s father will make an appearance next season. They are casting a character by the name of  Eduardo Dorrance who is the father of Bane. They want Dorrance to be in his mid 30s to early 40s. What role will he play in the final season? We don’t know yet but it’s certainly something to keep an eye on.

Lastly, we have some cool details on Arrow. In the upcoming season of Arrow, the stunt crew is looking to push the boundaries as far as they can. Stunt coordinator James Bamford had this to say to NewsaramaBeth and I had a phone call with BNSP, which is our censors… a very lengthy phone call about a particular scene that we never had before. So we are really trying to push the limits on the show in the gritty factor. We are trying to go as far as you can go within the confines of our network and what is expected of us and what we can and can’t do. We are not on Netflix so we will never be able to X, Y, and Z, but we are damn sure going to try. We can’t wait to see what Bamford and co. have in store for season 7.

That’s all we have for this edition of TV News Bits. For more on Titans, Gotham, and Arrow stay tuned.
