The DC Universe streaming service was off to a good start with the live action series for “Titans” and when I had briefly joined up had scores of comic books to peruse on your mobile device. Now its time for the next series to begin as The Doom Patrol come to life. Let’s take a look at the poster, premise and casting once more.
The Premise: Set after the events of Titans, the Doom Patrol – consisting of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane and new recruit Cyborg led by Dr. Niles Caulder – receive a mission to stop the supernatural supervillain known as Mr. Nobody from taking over the world.
Cast and Characters:
April Bowlby as Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman
Diane Guerrero as Kay Challis/Crazy Jane
Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg
Brendan Fraser and Riley Shanahan as Clifford “Cliff” Steele/Robotman
Alan Tudyk as Eric Morden/Mr. Nobody
Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief
Matt Bomer and Matthew Zuk as Larry Trainor/Negative Man
PiercingMetal Thoughts: At present I am not a subscriber to the DC Universe streaming service but I did give it a go some months ago when “Titans” began. It’s a reasonable enough cost but at the time I felt it needed more content for me to stick with it and with my carrying a super high Spectrum cable bill for television, Internet and phone along with Netflix AND a mobile plan, I was being spread too thin. I am very interested in seeing “Doom Patrol” because I’ve always found the teams adventures of interest, but I might end up waiting until they have “Swamp Thing” ready to share with us to sign back up. What about you readers? Are you DC Universe subscribers? What do you think of it so far and will you be watching “Doom Patrol” when it premieres today and following it along? Chime in down below in the comments section because we’d love to hear from you.
