As the upcoming DC Universe live-action series ‘Doom Patrol’ starts production, we may have our first look into which villain will be featured.
A recent casting leak from the upcoming live-action series Doom Patrol acquired by That Hashtag Show provides details on which villain fans can expect to see. The leak shows that the studio is looking for an A-list actor, 30-50, to take on the role of Mr. Nobody!
This iteration of Mr. Nobody will be seeking vengeance on the person he holds responsible for the failed experiment that caused his condition which, in addition to his insanity, has left him stuck between two dimensions. While the villains absurd and twisted methodologies will put him into the path of the Doom Patrol, he’ll come to admire the group despite a loathing for superheroes.
Eric Morden, aka Mr. Nobody, first appeared as Mr. Morden in Doom Patrol #86 of the original comic run, then he was brought back during Morrison’s now iconic Doom Patrol series in issue #26 with a substantial background and motive.
Although there isn’t much information available on the Doom Patrol series, other than it will spin out of the upcoming DC streaming platform’s first live-action series, Titans. The executive producers attached to the show are Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter.
Here is the official description of the show from DC Comics…
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.
