Titans season 3 star has reacted to their character being killed off in the DC show on HBO Max. The show is a mature take on DC’s Teen Titans and revolves around a group of young superheroes who come together and fight huge threats.
The cast of the show includes Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing, Mame-Anna Diop as Starfire; Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy; Curran Walters as Robin/Jason Todd, Conor Leslie as Wonder Girl; Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson; Joshua Orpin as Superboy, Esai Morales as Deathstroke and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne.
So far Titans have featured a number of storylines and characters from the Teen Titans comics. The third season of Titans has introduced characters of Red Hood, Barbara Gordon, Tim Drake and Scarecrow. They also had the main storyline taking turns into the dark side with character deaths and brutal fights and blood-soaked battles.
In the third season, Red Hood is a villainous threat but even Blackfire is the central threat. Alan Ritchson’s character was killed by Red Hood. In an interview with EW, Ritchson also shed light on the fate of his character. He said it was for the best and the actor revealed that he feels that the ending that his character had is a gift.
Ritchson further shared that his character staying in the afterlife was the best kind of closure for his character. He admitted that he would have stayed on for 50 seasons if he had never been confronted with this. The actor said, “Would I return toÂ Titans? Yes. Do I feel like I found closure and peace? So I’m satisfied if I never return and grateful for the time that I had.”
He already has a new gig though as he will be stepping into Tom Cruise’s lifted boots as Lee Child’s character Jack Reacher. It is a new series for Amazon Prime and Tom played the character for two movies. However, Tom has moved on from the project and Ritchson looks more similar to the description of the character than Tom anyway.
Ritchson revealed how playing Reacher is a dream role and he could retire after playing him and be content with his life. He said, “it’s with a full heart and a ton of gratitude that I stepped into that role; but it’s also with the understanding that it’s a massive responsibility.”
