Doom Patrol Adds Joivan Wade As Cyborg

Joivan Wade Cyborg DC Comics Doom Patrol

He recently appeared in the Blumhouse film "The First Purge" and is known for roles in shows like "Eastenders" and "Doctor Who". Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world, he harnesses the curse of his cybernetic body and uses his powers as the ultimate hero for the digital age. He plays an integral role in the series, alerting the Doom Patrol to a unsafe mission. Doom Patrol will follow in the wake of Titans, which is the first live-action series that will debut on the service when it launches later this year.

Based on the team of super-powered misfits introduced in 1963 by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, and updated in the '90s by Grant Morrison and Richard Case, the series will spin out of the events of the live-action Titans, which will feature the Doom Patrol in its fifth episode.

Joivan Wade has been cast as the DC hero, whose real name is Victor Stone. Led by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder, the group is called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Cyborg. Or, at the very least, we should expect a reference or two to his existence.

The actor will portray the character, who was played by Ray Fisher in Justice League, in the series.

DC Universe will be available sometime this fall. However, Warner Bros. tends to try and keep the small screen characters and the big screen characters apart.

As for the DC Universe streaming service as a whole, it is now in beta with a full launch planned for this fall. Offering original series as well as library content, classic TV shows, movies, a curated rotation of comic books, breaking news and an expansive DC encyclopedia, yearly membership is $74.99 (plus tax, if applicable), while monthly memberships will be available for $7.99.

Jeremy Carver will be the showrunner and executive producer for Doom Patrol.

Jeremy Carver (Being Human, Supernatural) will serve as both showrunner and executive producer, alongside Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter - because there can not be a DC property on television that Berlanti doesn't have some hand in.
