‘Doom Patrol’ Trailer: DC’s Weirdest Team Comes to Streaming
Over the years, Doom Patrol has earned a reputation as DC Comics’ strangest superhero team.
Based on the Doom Patrol show’s first trailer, it appears to be a faithful adaptation.
Following Titans, Doom Patrol is the next big live-action TV series to debut on DC’s streaming service, DC Universe. The cast is pretty sick for a niche straight-to-streaming show: Brendan Fraser plays Robotman (guess what his power is!), Diane Guerrero is Crazy Jane, Matt Bomer is Negative Man, April Bowlby is Elasti-Woman, Joivan Wade is Cyborg, and Timothy Dalton, former James Bond himself, is the Chief.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
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.
The character posters for the show are really fun as well:
Doom Patrol premieres on DC Universe on February 15.
