The Doom Patrol & Orphan Black Director Coming To Titans

The live-action Titans are going to be joined by another famous DC super-team on the series that is coming to the upcoming DC-branded streaming service.

DC’s Geoff Johns tweeted the cover page for the script for Episode 5 of Titans, which is called… “The Doom Patrol!” Johns is writer and Orphan Black director and co-creator John Fawcett is directing the episode. You can see the Tweet below.

Originally conceived at the same time as Marvel’s X-Men and with a similar outcast approach, the Doom Patrol has seen various iterations in the comics over the years, with the latest version coming from DC’s Young Animal imprint and currently crossing over with the Justice League in a story called “Milk Wars.” The character of Garfield Logan a.k.a. Beast Boy has long had ties to the Doom Patrol, and of course Beast Boy is part of this show as played by Ryan Potter.

We may note that we included some of our own casting choices for the Doom Patrol earlier this year, as we strongly suspected that the team would surface on Titans.

No premiere date is known yet for Titans but we can expect to see and hear more soon! Follow @TitansTV on Twitter for more show updates!

Geoff Johns Is Writing Some Titans Today

Fresh off the recent big news that Titans is back on as a thing that will be happening, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns Tweeted this morning that he’s spending his Friday writing some Titans.

“Enjoying an early Friday writing,” DC’s Chief Creative Officer posted.

Johns is arguably the best writer to have handled the Titans since the glory days of Marv Wolfman, George Perez, and Wolfman’s other collaborators, so this is very cool news to see.

In another Tweet about the Titans TV project being back on, Johns included the hashtag #BeastBoy. Hmm… Interestingly, we heard that Beast Boy was not among the plans when the show was at TNT, so this is cool.
