Live -action series on Doom Patrol joining DC Universe ; complete details inside3 min read
Previously we heard that the DC streaming service is named DC Universe and will be comprised of The Harley Quinn Animated series , Titans live-action series , animated Young Justice : Outsiders and Swamp Thing. However now , thanks to a new press release , we know that a live action Doom Patrol series is being planned for the streaming service at this point. Check out the details about the show below :
Executive Producers : Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, Sarah Schechter
Auspices: Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television
Order: Direct-to-Series Order, 13 Episodes
Format: One-hour drama
Written by Jeremy Carver and based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
Synopsis : 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.
The team is reportedly comprised of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Dr. Niles Caulder , the superhero Cyborg and Crazy Jane. It can be clearly noted that DC is trying to avoid the generic superhero perspective for the team and is trying to create stories which can convey drama for characters who are out-casts and/or are socially not normal. It will be interesting to know where things go on from now as we see the DC Universe grow bigger until it is finally released. Though the subscription is currently just available in the States , things can change in the upcoming period of time.
