DC’s Titans is confirmed to receive its second season, and now Geoff Johns, executive producer of Titans has teased that the show could also feature a gay hero in its next season.
When asked by TV Line if LGBT characters will be a part of the show, “Of course,” he responded.
“There’s one Titan that already is gay, that we’ve talked about bringing on — probably next season.”
Although Johns didn’t give out a specific name, the article teases that he could be referring to Miguel Jose Barragan aka Bunker. The character debuted in 2011’s Teen Titans #1 by Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth.
Lobdell spoke about the character during an interview with CBR in 2011. He said, “He enjoys being alive, he enjoys his sexuality, and he enjoys that he’s been gifted with these super powers. To some degree, I don’t think we see a lot of characters enjoying their super powers the same way that you and I would. I think it’s great to see the drama of characters burdened by that which separates them from society, but there’s also the idea that many people solely enjoy and celebrate every day that which makes them different instead of being fearful or angsty or regretful.”
The series is based on the DC Comics team under the same name and will see Dick Grayson finding a supernaturally powered girl, Raven. He will then assemble a team and re-assume the mantle of Robin.
Titans is now streaming on DC Universe.
