‘Doom Patrol’ is the next original live-action series that will hit Warner Brothers’ streaming service DC Universe. These characters debuted on DCU’s first series ‘Titans’ and producers were so captivated by them that they were given a spin-off before the episode even aired.
Matt Bomer (Larry Trainor/Negative Man), April Bowlby (Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman), and Brendan Fraser (Cliff Steele/Robotman) reprise their roles from the ‘Titans’ while Timothy Dalton takes over the role of Niles Caulder/The Cheif who was played by Bruno Bichir on ‘Titans’. Joivan Wade joins the cast as Victor Stone/Cyborg, while Diane Guerrero will portray Crazy Jane. Alan Tudyk also stars as the villain Mr. Negative.
‘Doom Patrol’ arrives in just weeks, so DC Universe is moving forward with its promotion. Below is a look at Robotman in action:
Robotman and the rest of the cast get their own character posters. Cyborg’s and Crazy Jane’s were previously released, but below you can get a better look at the rest of the cast in unique styles that fit their characters:
Finally, DC Universe also released the synopses for the first two episodes, entitled ‘Pilot’ and ‘Donkey Kong’.
In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away. However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.
‘Doom Patrol’ will be available on DC Universe starting February 15.
