After making a splash on ‘Titans’ Season 1, DC’s oddball super team the ‘Doom Patrol’ is set to star in their own series. As a holiday surprise, DC Universe has released the first teaser trailer for the series and it is fittingly kooky. It also gives the first looks at Cyborg and Crazy Jane, two characters that were not previously shown on ‘Titans’.
April Bowlby reprises her role as Rita Farr/Elasti-Girl. (She was previously referred to as Elasti-Woman, possibly to differentiate her from Elastigirl from the ‘Incredibles’, but it looks as though they have gone back to her original name.) Also returning are Matt Bomer and Brendan Fraser as the voices of Larry Traynor/Negative Man and Cliff Steele/Robotman respectively. Riley Shanahan and Matthew Zuk will portray the characters in their costumes. They are joined by Timothy Dalton, replacing Bruno Bichir as Niles Caulder/The Chief, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane. Alan Tudyk also stars as the villain Eric Morden/Mr. Nobody.

As you can see, the trailer announces ‘Doom Patrol”s release date, which is February 15, 2019.
‘Doom Patrol’ was developed by ‘Supernatural”s Jeremy Carver, who also serves as executive producer along with Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schechter.
“A re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find.
“Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.”
Once again, ‘Doom Patrol’ premiers on DC Universe on February 15, 2019.
