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.
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.”
Matt Bomer has finally landed a big role in a DC project… and it’s not as Superman! (What gives?)
Brendan Fraser appeared at New York Comic Con prior to the Titans world premiere to announce that Matt Bomer (White Collar) has joined Doom Patrol as the voice of Negative Man, and he will appear as Larry Trainor in flashback scenes! Bomer surprised fans with a special video greeting from the show’s Atlanta sets.
Playing the bandaged Negative Man will be Matthew Zuk.
In addition to Fraser and Bomer, Doom Patrol stars Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder/The Chief, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane and Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody. Read more about Doom Patrol here!
DC Universe has released character videos for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Raven (Teagan Croft), and we’re happy to see that if the early episodes are a bit on the overly dark side, there seems to be some levity to come. The Beast Boy video, in particular, is a lot of fun.
Titans is coming our way October 12, exclusively on the DC Universe subscription service.
DC has released some new Titans poster art in anticipation of the October 12 launch on DC Universe.
While obviously some artistic license is taken, check it out: Starfire is orange! Beast Boy is green! F— Batman!
All is right in the world; well, except that Starfire is still in that awful outfit with the fur coat.
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy. The original series will be released weekly on the DC Universe platform beginning October 12.
In honor of Batman Day, DC Universe’s “DC Daily” show has released a special Titans preview clip on today’s installment — a clip featuring Robins Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) in action… and/or comparing notes on an elevator.
Best Robin Tim Drake sat this one out.
Dick Grayson is, of course, a part of Titans from the very first episode which will be released October 12 on the DC Universe app. We’ll be seeing Jason Todd later on in the first season, with there even being an episode called “Jason Todd!”
