Titans actress Minka Kelly has been speaking with the press about her role as Dove on the series.
Kelly appeared on the OnWithMario podcast and dropped a few details about the upcoming series.
“The fact that we’re actually not superheroes; we’re vigilantes, so you get to see the backstory of how we became vigilantes, what happened in our lives that broke us, that made us want to fight, to protect the good of the people.
I have a background in ballet, 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… I can’t fly. It’s as realistic as possible. I can’t fly because that would be not realistic. I’m a real person.
“I have wings, but they’re my shield and they’re my weapon, so I take people under my wing and protect them and I slice people with them when I fight. We all have our own individual specific style of fighting and mine in particular is like a dancer… My background, she’s a ballerina.”
Late in the interview Kelly goes on to confirm the series has now wrapped filming. We also get confirmation that Titans will premiere with the streaming service launch later in the year.
“DC Comics is launching their own streaming service and they will be launching it with this show. We just wrapped our first season a couple weeks ago.”
