Doom Patrol is an absolutely wonderful show in which Brendan Fraser plays Robotman, a robot who is also a man. It’s also criminally underrated, but now is the perfect time to catch up on the series before season 2 debuts simultaneously on DC Universe and HBO Max June 25. To get even more hyped, the streamer just released two new posters. One is Wizard of Oz-themed while the other channels Alice in Wonderland, which suggests we’re just getting started down this show’s Yellow Brick Road of weirdness.
Developed by Jeremy Carver—and based on a comics team created by writers Arnold Drake and Bob Haney with artist Bruno Premiani—Doom Patrol assembles some of the most macabre characters in DC canon into one crew. The series stars Fraser as Robotman, Matt Bomer as Negative Man, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Cyborg, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, and Timothy Dalton as The Chief.
Check out the two new posters below.
Here is the official synopsis for Doom Patrol season 2:
DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
