A brand new extended look at DC Universe’s Doom Patrol has arrived to give us a glimpse of the origins of these ragtag misfits.
Robotman (voiced by Brendan Fraser), Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Cyborg (Joivan Wade) all get the spotlight. However, the extended trailer is a noticeable light on one character, the brilliant mad scientist who leads the team; Chief played by none other than Timothy Dalton.
The group of heroes will square off against Alan Tudyk’s villainous Mr. Nobody, and confront their own inner demons. This show had me at Dalton playing a mad scientist. Doom Patrol lands on DC Universe on February 15, 2019, as fellow DC Universe series Titans streams on Netflix outside of the US, it is likely that Netflix will add this to their roster.
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
