Doom Patrol is the best live action series to come out of the soon to be short-lived DC streaming universe service. The fever dream of a superhero team backed by a stellar cast including Brendan Fraser as Robotman, Matt Bomer as Negative Man, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Cyborg, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, and Timothy Dalton as The Chief. In the first season, the team took on their own insecurities while battling it out with Mr. Nobody, played by Alan Tudyk.
On June 25th, the new season will begin streaming on HBO Max. Along with a new network, they’ll also have a new member in The Chief’s Daughter, Dorothy Spinner, played by Abigail Shapiro. To celebrate the new season, and illustrate just how craze it gets, HBO Max has released two new posters for the upcoming series, one of which is inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the other of which is inspired by Wizard of Oz.
DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
