TITANS Adds NARCOS Actor Bruno Bichir as Leader of The Doom Patrol
DC’s series Titans will feature The Doom Patrol and it looks like The Chief will be played by Bruno Bichir (Narcos). The Doom Patrol is a group of superheroes similar to the Titans, but they’re not always very happy with how they ended up getting superpowers.
According to EW, it appears we’ll meet The Doom Patrol in episode 5. We don’t know any other details of which members we’ll see or what their role will be in the show. Maybe it will have something to do with Beast Boy who was part of The Doom Patrol in some incarnations.
Bichir will join Brenden Thwaites as Robin, Ryan Potter in the role of Beast Boy, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Lindsey Gort as Police Detective Amy Rohrbach, Alan Ritchson as Hawk and Minka Kelly as Dove. The series is being written by Akiva Goldsman, DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti and this is the previously released synopsis:
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Diop), Raven (Croft) and others.
Titans is set to debut on DC’s upcoming digital service sometime in 2018.
