DC Universe has confirmed the casting of Joivan Wade as Cyborg for Doom Patrol series.
The DC Universe has announced that English actor Joivan Wade (The First Purge) will be playing Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the Doom Patrol series.
“charming and sarcastic, Stone may be connected to every computer on the world, but he still struggles to maintain the connections that make him human. Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world, he harnesses the curse of his cybernetic body and uses his powers as the ultimate hero for the digital age.”
Wade joins a cast that will also feature Diane Guerrero (Orange Is The New Black) as Crazy Jane and April Bowlby (Titans) as Elasti Woman. Other members that will feature, but have yet-to-be-cast, include Robotman, Negative Man, and Dr. Niles Caulder.
Further details are unavailable, but the season synopsis does say Cyborg will have an integral role to play throughout the series as he recruits the five reluctant, borderline outcast, heroes and offers them a mission that will prove to be hard to refuse and that promises to take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe, although it will also come with a warning that the fivesome would be foolish to ignore.
