After filling out the main cast on the upcoming Titans show, DC begun to cast for the members of the Doom Patrol as guest stars. Luckily for those involved, Doom Patrol is getting its own show on DC Universe, the newly-named streaming service from the company that brought you the fictional shared comic universe called DC Universe and DC Universe Online, a massive multiplayer online game set in the DC Universe.
This incarnation of the Doom Patrol will be Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief), which will be spun out of Titans, as episode five of the first season was revealed to be titled Doom Patrol. The inclusion of Cyborg is the biggest announcement for the series, as he wasn't linked to Titans at all.
Doom Patrol is 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.
The cast of Doom Patrol includes Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, Jake Michaels as Robotman, and Dwain Murphy as Negative Man.
DC has ordered 13 episodes for Doom Patrol, which is expected to debut in 2019 on DC Universe.
