Doom Patrol's Second Season Is Working Through Some Personal Shit

If DC Universe and HBO Max’s Doom Patrol were a comic book—not that comic book, but rather a comic based on the live-action series—one might safely assume that the consequences of season one’s gloriously demented finale would be dealt with off-panel, in the narrative void. Even though the show has prided itself by…Read more...

The new trailer for season 2 of DOOM PATROL brings the SeX-Men to HBO Max

The first season of the DC Universe Original Doom Patrol TV series was truly wonderful in all the weirdest ways. Ostensibly about a group of "superheroes" (kind of) who are kind of like a way more fucked up version of the X-Men, the show (like the comic) was less interested in traditional superheroics, and more interested in an avant-garde exploration of the damaged psyches of these strange individuals. Their greatest enemies are the Brotherhood of Dada, who aren't trying to destroy the world...

You know that scene in Toy Story when Woody and Buzz first encounter those toys that Sid has tortured? The ones that seem a little bizarre at first, but actually end up having good intentions and good hearts? The characters at the center of the DC television series Doom Patrol remind me of those toys: they’re a makeshift family of outcasts brought together by traumatic circumstances, and by god, they’re going to make the best of things. The Doom Patrol season 2 trailer has arrived, and it gives...

Thank Goodness for TV Superheroes

Superhero movies have become the easiest way to make a blockbuster. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe have 31 released films between them, with at least a dozen more on the way. This glut of superhero cinema has burned out even some of the most tried-and-true comic book fans. While DC’s universe occasionally has a more adult edge, the MCU has bombarded viewers with family-friendly, epic storytelling for over a decade. Comic book fans wanting a more mature look into w...

These are the Southern California film locations from Best Picture nominees and winners

If they gave out Oscars for best use of Southern California locations, we know who the big winner would be at this year’s Academy Awards. Because even if you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood,” writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the film industry’s company town circa 1969, you probably know it’s a non-stop travelogue through the town of the title and surrounding environs. But it’s not the only locally shot film with a nomination: There are three up for a best picture Academy ...

Brendan Fraser Opens Up About His Superman Audition in the Early 2000s

Brendan Fraser can currently be seen as the DC Comics character Robotman on the DC Universe series Doom Patrol. Well, you don’t necessarily see him since he’s just providing the voice of a, well, robot man. But long before this opportunity came along, Fraser was in line to play one of the biggest DC Comics superheroes of all time. Back in the early 2000s, Brendan Fraser was still enjoying the success of The Mummy franchise and the various comedies he made throughout the ’90s. He was a pretty bi...

How 'Doom Patrol' turned an outlandish superhero team into DC Universe's latest hit TV series

DC Universe's "Doom Patrol" showrunner Jeremy Carver talked to Business Insider about bringing the weirdness of the comic book to the screen. " There was that element of weirdness and absurdity, but I was really taken by the pathos and heart beneath it all," Carver said. He added that the show had to have "equal or more weight" on the characters and their backstories as on the bizarre nature of the show. To say that DC's Doom Patrol is an unconventional superhero team is an understatement....
