Following on from the castings of Bruno Bichir (Narcos) as Dr. Niles Caulder / The Chief, April Bowlby (Drop Dead Diva) as Rita Farr / Elasti-Girl and Jake Michaels (Designated Survivor) as Cliff Steele / Robotman, we now have word that DC’s upcoming digital series Titans has found another member of the Doom Patrol.
Den of Geek is reporting that Dwain Murphy (Star Trek: Discovery, The Strain) is set to play Larry Trainor / Negative Man in the live-action Teen Titans show. His character description reads:
“A pilot in the Air Force, Larry Trainor crashed his plane and was exposed to a mysterious “negative” energy. Wrapped in bandages to protect those around him, Larry struggles with this new strange power.”
From executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, TITANS is an all-new live-action drama series that follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. TITANS is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Titans sees Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) leading the cast as Dick Grayson, alongside Teagan Croft (The Osiris Child) as Raven, Anna Diop (24: Legacy) as Starfire, Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6) as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson (Smallville) as Hawk, Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Dove and Lindsey Gort (Lucifer) as Detective Amy Rohrbach. It is set to air on the new DC streaming service later in the year.
