The Doom Patrol Will Appear on the Titans TV Show

DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns has made a huge reveal by showing off the title page for an upcoming episode of Titans“The #Titans are getting some company…” he wrote ahead of the photo that reveals the episode’s title of “Doom Patrol.”

Created by writers Arnold Drake & Bob Haney and artist Bruno Premiani, The Doom Patrol are a superpowered group of misfits in the DCU whose adventures border on the incredibly bizarre and outrageous, even for comics. Lead by Niles Caulder, the original team consisted of the likes of the super strong (albeit dimwitted) Cliff Steele, the self explanatory Elasti-Girl, and the astral projected Negative Man.

Different iterations of the team have existed across the decades of DC continuity, with members including Crazy Jane, Elongated Man, Metamorpho, the sentient piece of road “Danny the Street,” and even Titans member Beast Boy. The team also appeared in the animated Teen Titans series and Teen Titans Go!.

Titans stars Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Dick Grayson/Robin, Teagan Croft (Home and Away) as Raven, Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Koriand’r/Starfire, Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) & Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Hawk and Dove, and Lindsey Gort as Police Detective Amy Rohrbach.

Titans comes from executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. In the action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including StarfireRaven and many others. Fans can expect Titans to be a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever. The series will premiere on the DC streaming service when it launches.
