the cast of DC’s Doom Patrol TV series is getting really interesting. Along with Brendan Fraser, Joivan Wade as Cyborg, Alan Tudyk, April Bowlby, and Diane Guerrero, it has just been announced that Timothy Dalton would be joining the show as team leader, Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief).
Sadly, we are a ways off from seeing Dalton in action as the show isn’t set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service until 2019. However, the service itself will be launching later this fall at a cost of $7.99 a month or $74.99 a year.
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.
