DC Universe just recently launched, and DC Comics fans now have their first exclusive series in Titans to enjoy. As exciting as the first season of Titans is shaping up to be, fans have Doom Patrol to look forward to in 2019, much of which is thanks to the presence of Cyborg in the new series, to be played by The First Purge actor Joivan Wade stepping into the role of Victor Stone.
Doom Patrol is a spinoff set in the same universe as Titans, which certainly opens up the opportunity for Wade’s Cyborg to potentially crossover with the Titans and perhaps work with them like in the comics. Beyond his associations with numerous DC Comics teams, Cyborg is also notable for his striking suit design given that he is both robotic and human.
On his official Instagram story, Wade answered a question about how he feels the Cyborg suit looks. Wade reveals that he is quite impressed. You can check out his response down below:
Wade is the latest actor to portray Cyborg in live-action form. In the DC Extended Universe, actor Ray Fisher has portrayed the character in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
How do you think Joivan Wade will turn out as Cyborg in Doom Patrol? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest updates from the DC Universe.
Here is the synopsis for the show:
“Doom Patrol will find 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.”
Doom Patrol stars April Bowlby, Diane Guerrero, Joivan Wade, Brendan Fraser, Alan Tudyk, Timothy Dalton and Matt Bomer.
The series will premiere on DC Universe sometime in 2019.
