Titans Series Adds To Its Doom Patrol

The live action Titans is quickly adding to its Doom Patrol!

Per Screen Rant:

DC’s upcoming Titans TV series has cast Jake Michaels as Robotman. While excitement was already high for a live-action TV show, based upon the Teen Titans comics, a lot of recent press has surrounded another superhero team coming to TV. Geoff Johns confirmed Doom Patrol will join Titans recently, with the team lending their name to the fifth episode of the debut season. From there on, it’s possible the misfits heroes could return, but if nothing else, their first appearance looks to feature a number of classic characters.

It was recently revealed that Soldado actor Bruno Bichir will play The Chief on Titans, the genius doctor who leads the Doom Patrol.

Michaels has done a lot of TV work but mostly single-episode roles, and Titans may be yet another mark in that category. But the report also says it’s possible for him to recur as Robotman. The same was said about other recent Doom Patrol casting news, as April Bowlby will play Elasti-Girl on Titans. Like Michaels and Bichir, Bowlby will arrive in episode 5, presumably with her size-changing and stretching abilities already acquired.
