As we approach the release of Doom Patrol season 2–and tentatively binge season 1 in preparation for the new season–DC has released some new art to give us some notion of what we’re in store for come June 25th. The poster promo art includes a Wizard of Oz homage utilizing the superheroes on a y fellow brick road and in the second poster an Alice in Wonderland homage has to be taking place. Check those out below.
Eagle-eyed viewers will note the characters appear to be emboldened over paintings and none other than Doom Patrol member Dorothy Spinner is making her debut in season 2. The reveal of the character suits the painting theme since Dorothy has the ability to bring imaginary beings to life.
Entertainment Weekly had the scoop with the character in a shot with Robotman in an early look at season 2, as well.
Doom Patrol season two starts streaming Thursday, June 25th with Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade), Niles Caulder, a.k.a. The Chief (Timothy Dalton, “Hot Fuzz”), and a young girl who appears to be his daughter Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro, “Broadway Kids Against Bullying: I Have a Voice”). Subsequent Thursdays will feature new episodes after June 25th.
How warped and bizarre will the missions be in season 2? Dorothy is likely to amp up the weird and fans of the show would accept nothing less.
