It’s almost Christmas time, which means everybody is shutting down through the New Year. Chances are this will probably be the last little Showbiz related nugget we’ve got for you, but it’s a fun one. DC Universe, in the lead-up to their live action Doom Patrol series’ February debut, got into the holiday spirit with the cast. Take a look below:

Not only that, but here are some fun posters they also released for each character. I still don’t know why Cyborg is in the Doom Patrol when you already have Robot Man there, but I guess they felt they needed a bigger named character to help act as a guiding hand of some sort – especially since according to the show’s description, he’ll be coming to them as an outsider:
DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find.
Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
I, for one, am pretty excited about this and it makes me want to catch up on Titans just to see their initial debut. Got a long weekend ahead of me, I may very well do it.
