Ray Fisher has portrayed Cyborg on the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, but now there's a new Cyborg on block taking on the small screen. Joivan Wade is set to play Cyborg on the DC Universe show Doom Patrol.

DC loves to keep a fine line between its TV shows and its movies so it's no surprise that a new actor was cast for the streaming service.

Wade's credits include Doctor WhoEastEnders, and The First Purge.

The other members of the Doom Patrol cast include Bruno Bichir as Dr. Niles Caulder, April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, Jake Michaels as Robotman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, and Dwain Murphy as Negative Man. DC has ordered 13 episodes for Doom Patrol, which is expected to debut in 2019 on DC Universe.
