New DOOM PATROL Set Photos Give Us Our Best Look Yet at Robotman
Some new set photos have surfaced from DC Universe's live-action Doom Patrol series and these give us our best look yet at the character Robotman. I absolutely love his look because it’s right out of the comic books!
Robotman is being played by Brendan Fraser in the series. He’s not the guy wearing the suit but he will be providing the voice and appear in flashback scenes as Cliff Steele.
Cliff Steele is a former race car driver who was in a crazy accident that left his body uninhabitable. Cliff’s brain was saved by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder and he lives on in a powerful robotic body.
I’m looking forward to seeing some official photos of these characters, but in the meantime check out the photos from the set here:
The series also stars Dwain Murphy as Negative Man, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Cyborg and Alan Tudyk was cast in the role of Negative Man.
DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities—but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence—and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
Doom Patrol is being written by Jeremy Carver who will executive produce it alongside Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
The series received a 13-episode straight-to-series order and it will begin production this year for a 2019 premiere on DC Universe.
