Everyday we inch closer and closer to the debut of the DC Universe streaming service that will launch sometime this fall. Within that service we will have the Titans series, which will then spin off into a live action Doom Patrol series. In the description of the show, we learned that the heroes would reluctantly get called into action by Cyborg.
Today we learned via comicbook.com that Doom Patrol has officially cast it’s Cyborg. He will be played by actor Joivan Wade, who a lot of people know from the film The First Purge. He as also starred in Netflix’s The Weekend Movie and BBC’s The Interceptor. Also he is co-founder of the digital media company The Wall of Comedy.
His role as Victor Stone has been added as a series regular. Cyborg has often been an important part of both the Teen Titans and as of late the Justice League. Now he will be appearing on Doom Patrol to give the team an offer they cannot refuse. Check out the character description.
“Vic Stone is the charming and sarcastic half-human, half-machine superhero known as Cyborg. Vic may be connected to every computer on the world, but he struggles to maintain the connections that make him human. Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world, Vic harnesses the curse of his cybernetic body and uses his powers as the ultimate hero for the digital age.”
Besides the call to action we already talked about, it is still unknown how Cyborg fits into the Doom Patrol story line. But since he set to be a series regular, we can expect to see quite a bit of him. It will be interesting to see what he looks like given that this show will no doubt have a smaller budget than Justice League, where they could spend a lot of cash on the character’s design.
Jeremy Carver will be the showrunner and executive producer for Doom Patrol. Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schecter will also be on board as executive producers.
