VIDEO: DC Comics’ Freakiest Superheroes Fight Villains and Solve Bizarre Cases in ‘Doom Patrol’ Trailer
Timothy Dalton, Brendan Fraser, and Matt Bomer star on the series, debuting Friday on DC UniverseFebruary 15, 2019
The Justice League may be DC Comics’ most well-known super group, but even with a guy who talks to fish they’re far from its strangest.
On Valentine’s Day, DC unveiled a trailer for its new series “Doom Patrol,” following a band of flawed, disfigured superheroes who solve bizarre cases while battling their own personal demons. Led by a modern-day mad scientist known as the Chief (Timothy Dalton), the Doom Patrol includes a race car driver turned robot in Robotman (Brendan Fraser), a radioactive test pilot in Negative Man (Matt Bomer), a former movie starlet who can change her shape in Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and a mentally ill woman with various powers attached to her various personalities in Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero).
The action-filled, darkly comedic trailer shows them joining forces to investigate otherworldly mysteries, rescue the downtrodden, and apparently drink mint juleps. They also end up taking on the sanity-syphoning supervillain Mr. Nobody (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s” Alan Tudyk).
The series is executive produced by Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, and Greg Berlanti, some of the people responsible for other DC-inspired hits like “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl.”
“Doom Patrol” debuts Friday on DC Universe.
