Brendan Fraser is the voice of Robotman in the live-action Doom Patrol TV show

I was worried that Robotman was going to be pushed out of the new Doom Patrol show when it was mentioned Cyborg would be in it. Robotman was always one of my favourite characters in the comic book. However, looks like I was wrong as Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) has been cast in the role of Cliff Steele / Robotman.

DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities—but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence—and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than 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.

Fraser is thought to be playing Steele in flashbacks and providing the voice of Robotman. Riley Shanahan, in full body costume, will perform the physical part of Robotman. Fraser is a damn fine choice to voice Robotman and my interest in the show has returned!

Cliff Steele became Robotman after the daredevil and race car driver was in an accident during the Indianapolis 500, destroying his body. Caulder subsequently placed Cliff’s intact brain into a robotic body.

The cast already includes  April Bowlby as Elasti-GirlDiane Guerrero as Crazy Jane and Joivan Wade as Cyborg.

The show will be part of the new streaming service, DCUniverse. Slated for release in autumn 2018, fans in the United States can now pre-order DC Universe at DCUniverse.com for the yearly membership fee of $74.99 (plus tax, if applicable in your state). Monthly memberships will be available at launch for $7.99 a month.

At the heart of DC UNIVERSE will be all-new exclusive original live-action and animated series based on DC’s iconic characters. Developed by Warner Bros. Television, Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol are scheduled to debut in 2019, following the dramatic, live-action adventure series Titans which premieres later this year. Warner Bros. Animation is also developing a slate of animated TV series based on existing fan favorites, including Harley Quinn and the highly anticipated third season of the popular Young Justice: Outsiders animated series which are both scheduled to debut in 2019.
