WFD Episode 121: The Hell Equivalent of Tasmania OR Unlike the Comic, No One Dies


A new post to coincide with an episode of Waiting for Doom! That hasn't happened in ever, has it?! 
Anyway, here's how everyone's favorite sentient show account describes Episode #121: 

Angels! Demons! Literal tugging of heart strings! Cocooned souls! GSMD! Flying arms to the head - take a drink, and LET'S GET PATROLLING!
  • Down on Derington Way - 5:41
  • Doom Clock - 13:58
  • Doomsplaining - 18:21 - We are taking another dive into the hidden gem that is volume 3 of the Doom Patrol, and discuss issues 11 and 12 by John Arcudi, Tan Eng Huat, Bob Lappan, Dave McCaig, Guy Major and Andrew Helfer! 
  • Mailbag O Doom - 41:50 - we read some listener feedback before reviewing responses to the latest Question of the Week: Who is your favourite cyborg?

Now, who wants some images?!?

Here we go, Doom Patrol (V3) #11


Issue #12? Yeah. We got that. BEHOLD! 

Uh oh. Someone's gonna get it from Mama Bruder. 

Apologies for not catching up on the QOTW, but those are a bit in the past. I figure best to get completely caught up on some shared images. 

More soon. . .

Let's make it an OFFICIAL press release!

Live-Action Drama from Berlanti Production to Debut in 2019
We are pleased to announce today that the upcoming DC Universe digital service has ordered its next original series, the one-hour live-action drama DOOM PATROL, from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver and Sarah Schechter.
DOOM PATROL will begin production this year for a 2019 debut on DC Universe.
Artwork is attached, and project info is below. Please advise if you have any questions. 
  • Network: DC Universe digital service, operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks
  • Auspices: Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television
  • Order: Direct-to-Series Order, 13 Episodes
  • Format: One-hour drama
  • Executive Producers: Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, Sarah Schechter
  • Written by: Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver
  • Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani
  • Logline: 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.

Titans Together! Doom Patrol - uh, well... Go...?!

DC Entertainment has been crafting some shows for the debut of network of their own, which we now know as DC Universe. One of those shows the network is going to premiere is Titans, which, as you all know has some pretty tight ties to the Doom Patrol.

A couple weeks back Geoff Johns shared this:

And then we got some casting announcements, including

Bruno Bichir as Niles Caulder aka The Chief

April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl (presumably also Rita Farr)

Jake Michaels as Robotman

Dwain Murphy as Negative Man
. . .and to make matters even more cool, they've announced some more shows on the DC Universe service. 

Those shows include: Season 3 of Young Justice (and presumably Seasons 1 & 2), Swamp Thing, and Harley Quinn. I'm not sure what else will be available, except, oh yeah - 


They're using a very John Byrne-esque logo, but there's been no mention of Nudge or Grunt (or Grudge or Nunt), so hope springs eternal. . .

I've long said Doom Patrol is tailor-made for other media than comics. Now it looks like DC Universe is going to prove me right.

I'm sure we'll get more casting news soon. 

UPDATE: As I was going to click "Publish," CBR broke word that Crazy Jane would be joining the team. I'm trying to track down the official press release to share.

As for the imagery to go with the podcast, well, I'm glad you asked. 

That is some manicure that ape is sporting. 

Stupid Nudge's stupid phone call to her stupid family.
