Doom Patrol is the third exclusive series set to premiere on the service, following the inaugural season of Titans and the first half of Young Justice Outsiders. Ahead of the show’s release DC was able to reveal the show’s new logo and another look at Robotman as portrayed by The Mummy’s Brendan Fraser via IGN.
The character appears to be trying to lift a fallen tree and does not seem to have any stylistic changes from his previous appearance on the fourth episode of Titans, where Raven enjoyed dinner with Beast Boy’s quirky adoptive family.
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.
Doom Patrol stars Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief.
Doom Patrol is set to premiere on DC Universe on February 15th.
