It was only last week that I shared some stuff from the upcoming DC Universe original series “The Doom Patrol” with a post that invited us to “Meet Them” and while this clip was super short, you’re going to want to click HERE since I’ve included a whole bunch of promotional posters as well. With the show beginning its weekly streaming tomorrow, I was surprised to find an extended trailer but here it is and here we are. Let’s take a look.
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: Having mentioned I am not currently a subscriber I will leave it at that. This longer trailer looked interesting to me so who knows what I am going to think once I know the show has a season under its belt. I can’t think too much more on it right now since Toy Fair is now in two days and I have a mountain of posts to prep to run and a bunch of reveals to share with you. Fans of this kind of stuff from us are going to want to check back to the Pop Culture section regularly to see what goes online. New posts will go to our Facebook and Tumblr accounts and of course Google+ while it still functions. All of those social networks are linked to on the About Page on the menu. So what did you think of the longer trailer? Are you DC Universe subscribers already? What do you think of it so far and will you be watching “Doom Patrol” when it premieres tomorrow and following it along? Chime in down below in the comments section because we’d love to hear from you.
