Doom Patrol is set to appear on Titans, the live action show on DC Universe, and now it looks like they are getting their own thirteen episode live action show on the streaming service. Executive Producers include Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter with episodes written by Jeremy Carver. It will be set in the same world as Titans with Cyborg also set to appear, but as of now we are not sure in what capacity.
The members of the Doom Patrol confirmed to appear in Titans are Niles Caulder (Bruno Bichir), Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby), Robotman (Jake Michaels), and Negative Man (Dwain Murphy). Ryan Potter will also play ex-Doom Patrol member Beast Boy on Titans, though it remains to be seen whether the role will extend to Doom Patrol.
According to the official description:
“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.
Sounds promising for sure!
