TITANS EPs on Nightwing, LGBT heroes and Donna Troy

Though NYCC feels like an age ago we’re still learning more from the world premiere of Titans. Over the weekend TVLine released an excellent interview with the cast and crew discussing the development of various storylines in the show.

Fans were able to submit questions with interviewer Matt Mitovich then put to the team. First up: will we see any LGBT heroes on Titans“Of course,” affirmed executive producer Geoff Johns. Could he be alluding to Miguel Jose Barragan aka Bunker, he said, “There’s one Titan that already is gay, that we’ve talked about bringing on — probably next season.”

Many fans spotted Donna Troy references in this weeks episode. The character was seen in a photo alongside Dick, Dove and Hawk. Her name also appeared in the call list on Dick’s bat phone. Fans wanted to know if we would see her friendship with Kory explored on the show.

“It’s an interesting relationship that comes about when Donna Troy (played by Man in the High Castle‘s Conor Leslie) and Starfire meet… You’ll have to watch!” teased Diop. Asked to at least preview the circumstances under which the ladies cross paths, she politely deferred, “I can’t, because I think it will give too much away.”

But of course the question on everyones lips: will Dick Grayson become Nightwing? Writer Akiva Goldmas was tight lipped as ever on the topic. “That’s the long game,” said Goldsman. With Season 2 already greenlit, “Our whole first season is an origin episode, the birth of the team.” Added Johns: “Obviously, Dick Grayson’s evolution from Robin to Nightwing is a big part of his character, and at some point he will evolve into that.”

Head over to TVLine to read the full interview.
