Brendan Fraser, who plays Robotman in the upcoming DC Universe series Doom Patrol, has finally given fans their first look at the iconic character while discussing the show at this year’s New York Comic-Con.
The DC Universe had some fans worried when it was first announced. Not because it didn’t seem like a great service, but with so many streaming platforms available it had some folks wondering if the new streaming service would be worth the money. Well, the reviews have been flooding in for the DC Universe’s Titans and from the sound of it, the streaming platform seems to be justifying its price pretty well.
Doom Patrol will be a spinoff from Titans expected to arrive at some point next year. One of the aspects of the series that fans first discussed was how DC would bring the character to life. They could’ve gone with CGI but from the look of the first official image, it seems that Robotman will be a living, breathing character, so to speak. Check out the image below, which shows Fraser revealing the first look at this year’s New York Comic-Con.

Titans will be the only new exclusive live-action series on the DC Universe streaming service but those who join the service can soon expect shows like Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Stargirl, and the animated Harley Quinn series. If you’re excited about this image of Robotman above, just imagine what James Wan’s Swamp Thing could look like when brought to life with practical FX.
