DC Universe is premiering Doom Patrol this coming Friday, February 15, and at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, we asked if the events of this series tie in to what we saw on Titans last year.
“There are elements that were present in the Titans ‘Doom Patrol’,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said, “but I think everyone is best suited coming into this Doom Patrol understanding that we have our own continuity and our own story. And if you come in with a fresh perspective, I think that’s the best way to view this Doom Patrol,” he said.
Doom Patrol will have April Bowlby reprising the role of Rita Farr from Titans; Matthew Bomer and Brendan Fraser continue to voice Negative Man and Robotman. Timothy Dalton takes over the role of The Chief. Follow @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter for more on the show!
Doom Patrol will premiere February 15 exclusively on the DC Universe service, and they have made descriptions available for the first two episodes!
Hopefully we’ll have some photos soon.
Here are those descriptions:
Episode 1: “Pilot”
In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away. However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).
Episode 2: “Donkey Patrol”
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.
Photos and an official description have been released to promote “The Asylum” which is the Friday, November 23 episode of Titans on the DC Universe app.
Here’s how DC Universe describes the episode; the official photos from “The Asylum” follow below. It’s a smaller gallery than we have gotten in past weeks, but the photos do look pretty cool!
When The Messenger (recurring guest star REED BIRNEY) reveals that Rachel’s birth mother is alive and being held captive by The Organization in a mysterious psychiatric facility, Rachel is determined to rescue her. But once inside, the Titans are faced with their deepest vulnerabilities and fears.
Warner Bros. has released some official photos to promote the fifth episode of Titans.
The episode is called “Together” and here’s how they describe it:
After rescuing Rachel from Dr. Niles Caulder (Bruno Bichir), Dick and Kory hit the road with Rachel and Gar. But when the Nuclear Family again tracks them down, all four decide the time for running is over. For the first time, they work in unison. As they take on the Nuclear Family, we witness the birth of the team that will come to be known as “The Titans.”
The preview images can be found below.
A character that many have been waiting to see is in the new stills… Jason Todd as played by Curran Walters. Jason is Dick’s replacement as Robin.
Almost every view that fans have gotten of Anna Diop as Kory a.k.a. Starfire on DC Universe’s Titans (premiering October 12 on DC Universe) has had the character in an outfit that many have said unkind things about. Even with that said, no official look has been released as Starfire in a comic-accurate costume.
ComicBook.com asked Diop about this and she did, indeed, confirm that she will have Starfire’s traditional look.
“As soon as I put it on, everyone was flipping out,” she said. “It’s awesome because it’s something that so many people have seen for so long and it means so much to people and this is the first time we’re bringing it to life, but you know — our story takes its time. It takes its time, it’s an origin story, so it takes its time in the characters coming to this place where you see them and the way that everyone’s always known. I hope that the audience can be patient with us and have fun with us. It’s a ride, and it’s a fun one.”
