    Can they just not with Cyborg? They are pushing him HARD. If they put this much effort into other DC characters....just give us a Cyborg movie and stop pushing him into everything.

    No history with these characters, so I want to see how Titans goes and decide from there. I think they're supposed to appear on that show.

    He shouldn’t get a movie. Who would the villain be? Grid?

    Honestly putting him in this Titans/Doom Patrol is the beat possible move. Ray Fisher’s Cyborg had zero charm. I never liked Cyborg in the JL anyway, the Titans is where he shines

    Omega Underground has some casting sides for Cyborg with his father and Robotman. Has some language so it can't be posted.

    I thought Fisher did an okay (just okay) job in JL but yes I agree with this.

    Yeah, I thought Fisher was fine in JL. Especially for an actor who had never been in a movie before. But the rumor is that they're recasting because DC projects can never have any connection with the movies or whatever (I guess because people tend to like the TV shows, and we can't have that when it comes to the movies).

    Anyway, this project interests me but I'm just not sure. I don't know much about Doom Patrol but my impression of it was that it was always REALLY dark and weird and not the type of thing that really fits in well with DC's more traditional superhero properties, hence the reason why it was (or still is?) a Vertigo title.

    I'm very interested in seeing how he's going to look.

    Remember that picture that Ray Fisher posted on his Twitter a few years back of himself wrapped in tin foil? Something like that.

    I'm wondering to myself... why is Cyborg not on Titans?

    Was it not said that Cyborg would cross over to Titans at some point? Thought I read/heard that somewhere.

    Maybe it's a plan for the second season - if it gets one.

    Doom Patrol is debuting on Titans. Figured the Cyborg casting announcement was just intentionally late.

    Yeah but Cyborg isnt on there to bring them together, thats the basis of the spin off. They'll probably be there for a Beast Boy episode.

    Very happy to hear this. Fraser was fantastic earlier this year on Trust on FX.
