Doom Patrol: Joivan Wade Cast As Cyborg For DC Universe Series


Warner Bros. Television has announced that Joivan Wade has signed up to play Victor Stone aka Cyborg in DC Universe’s upcoming live-action drama series Doom Patrol.

 

The series is being described as a reimagining of one of DC Comics most beloved group of outcast superheroes. The group includes Robotman, Negative man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, who are led by modern-day scientist Dr. Niles Caulder aka The Chief. The Doom Patrol members each suffered accidents that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatised and downtrodden, the members found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence…and to protect Earth from what they find. The Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered misfits who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

 

The Doom Patrol characters will be appearing first in the live-action series of Titans on the DC Universe, and the reports state that the Doom Patrol series will pick up after the events of Titans first season, with the reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by 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.

 

Joivan Wade (whose credits include The Weekend and The First Purge) will be playing Vic Stone, 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.

 

Jeremy Carver will be writing the series based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani. Carver will executive produce the series alongside Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions.

 

Joivan Wade will be joining a cast that includes Bruno BichirApril BowlbyJake MichaelsDwain Murphy and Diane Guerrero.
