DC Comics chief Geoff Johns has confirmed on social media that beloved comics characters The Doom Patrol will be making their live-action debut in the upcoming “Titans” series for DC’s upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service.
Johns shared a script page, revealing the fifth episode of the new series will be named after the superhero team with at least one of the key characters to appear. One, Beast Boy, has already been set as a regular cast member and is played by Ryan Potter.
The “Doom Patrol” comic has had various interpretations over the years, the most famous being Grant Morrison’s run in early 1990s which incorporated bizarre secret societies, Dada, surrealism and parody in its story of a team of misfits and outcasts.
Brenton Thwaites, Minka Kelly, Alan Ritchson, Teagan Croft, Anna Diop, Seamus Dever, and Lindsey Gort star in “Titans” which is set to premiere later this year.
