Though previous Doom Patrol set pics have featured actor Riley Shanahan in his Robotman costume, here we get a first look at the character’s face, and it’s fair to say comic book fans will be very pleased.
Another batch of photos from the set of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol series have found their way online via Just Jared, and this time we get a much better look at Riley Shanahan as Robotman.
Though the metal hero will be physically portrayed by Riley Shanahan, The Mummy actor Brendan Fraser will provide his voice and also appear as the character’s human alter-ego Cliff Steele in flashbacks.

Sticking close to the comics, Steele is a former race driver who’s involved in a horrific accident. Though his body is broken beyond repair, his brain is then transferred to a powerful robot host by the mysterious Dr. Caulder.
The outcast heroes that make up the Doom Patrol will be introduced in the fifth episode of Titans, which was written by Geoff Johns. The show is set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service next year.
