The roster of characters set to appear on the DC Universe original series Doom Patrol is going to get bigger than we thought.

During a Q & A with the cast of the series a reporter asked Dalton what his character would be doing later on in the season. He responded with a possible allusion to the character by saying, “We’ve just done an episode that we finished last week that took us to the far north of the continent, North Yukon.” He added, “Where I meet an extraordinary young woman who is very hairy and may be even considered pre-human.
In the comics, Dorothy Spinner joined the Doom Patrol during writer Grant Morrison’s run in the late 1980s. Spinner has the ability to bring imaginary beings from her mind into and out of creation. Her most recognizable features though are her hairy arms and resemblance to a pre-human animal.
It is not presently known who has been casted to portray Spinner or what episode she is appearing in this season. FandomWire has reached out to Warner Bros. Television for further comment.
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.
