DC Universe, the DC streaming and digital content service, has a live-action Doom Patrol series on the way.
The first teaser trailer has arrived for the series, based on the DC Comics superhero team created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani. We get our first proper look the titular team of superpowered outcasts – Larry Trainor/Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Cliff Steele/Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Victor Stone/Cyborg (Joivan Wade) – who are led by idealistic mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton).
The series will be picking up after the events in DC Universe series Titans, which had Doom Patrol superheroes make an appearance in episode four and just had its finale air. Fear not those in Australia: the complete first season of Titans will be hitting Netflix on January 11, so we’ve got time to catch up before this one potentially arrives on Netflix Australia later in the year.
Doom Patrol will be premiering on DC Universe on February 15. Check out the complete synopsis and the show’s character posters beneath the trailer.
Official synopsis for Doom Patrol:
DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved groups 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.
